Mixed metal and Folk bedroom

This mixed Metal and Folk bedroom consist of  Copper, brass and gold are all popular metals which have been featured in the trend pages of many interior magazines, however, I haven’t seen many articles suggesting how to pull these different materials together and also what to team them with? We have chosen Folk, mixing beautifully patterned textiles with a deep blue wall colour, this striking contrast makes the colours and reflective metals really stand out.


Don’t be afraid to ‘mix your metals’, above we have teamed a copper bed frame (Next) with gold shelves, a metallic throw and gold hide rug, the look has been pulled together with the colourful textiles and flowers in a similar hue.


Continuing with our mixed metal scheme, the copper hinge trunks from Idyll Home offer great bedroom storage for bedding or winter throws and look great with the floor standing candle holders and shelf (John Lewis and Rocket St George).


The folk inspired pouffe adds an injection of colour and even doubles up as a bedside table


I fell in love with this metal chair, especially after I saw it against the deep-sea wall colour.  We have varied the price points of the product in this shoot, teaming a stylish £125 chair from Rocket St George with a £7 supermarket cushion from Tesco as we wanted to show that great design can be created with lower cost items.
