Be Bold ..Be Daring.. No more Matchy Matchy

Today’s trends of mixings colors and different metals is a break from the one-dimensional bathroom finishes.

Not everything needs to match or even blend. It’s ok to hang that antique gold chandler with the a more modern nickel faucet. Try Copper with Matt Black. Bold new colors like Rose Gold and Blush Bronze can pair with bold tiles and Matt sinks.

Add a splash of color ,  find something that speaks to you and run with it.

Metallic accents define Michel Smith Boyd’s aesthetic. The Atlanta-based designer, who has appeared everywhere from the pages of Elle Decor to this season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, has become known for artfully mixing metals and spiking his designs with rose gold. Boyd is fearless when it comes to mixing metallics, and his spaces are all the better for it. That’s why we think there’s no better designer to take you for a turnaround Native Trails’ new Polished Copper finish.

In the 2016 Modernism Week Show House (Boyd also participated in this year’s show house), he used a Dornbracht faucet in the brand’s Cyprum finish, described as “a high-gloss finish produced using 18-carat gold and copper.” He says, “That was my first time in Palm Springs, and Traditional Home invited me up, and I was like, ‘I’m going to travel across the country to do a powder room?’ But that small space turned out to be such a big deal for me. Allegedly, there’s nothing new under the sun, but seeing that rose gold faucet in that bathroom! I thought, ‘Why didn’t we do this before?’”


There are so many ways to add a bit of color

Powder baths can be a great place to mix things up!



The Same goes for the Kitchen. Love the mix of Copper with Stainless.  Try a Matt Black faucet

Adding Tiles with a bold pattern or texture can add a new dimension to the space.
