I love metal. And not the heavy, musical kind, but the glossy, industrial, luxe, shiny (I could go on) kind. If I could, I think I’d live in a metal house – although I think it’d be very hot in the summer and I’d probably get bored of it before the first sign of rust. Anyway, whether you go full-on industrial or just add a hint to your interior look, the best thing about metal is that it’s such an easy trend to incorporate into your decor. Why? Because you can find pretty much anything you fancy in metal, and what you can’t find can be fixed with an £8 can of metallic spray paint.


Metal doesn’t mean ‘cold’ – go for a warm shade like brass or rose gold
