Design Trend :: Metallic Throw Pillows

disclosure: This post contains some affiliate links, which means Simplified Bee receives commission if you make a purchase using these links.

I’ve been spotting them everywhere these days. Metallics whether that be gold, silver, bronze or copper are giving interior furnishings, fixtures and textiles the Midas touch. Shimmery throw pillows are a great way to embrace the trend without going overboard. Just like animal prints, a little metallic touch goes a long way!

Here are a few chic metallic throw pillows that rose to the top of my list.

Darling Pink Peonies Picnic Birthday Party

 

Pink peonies are favorite, so I had to share this adorable picnic birthday party of little Mila I spotted on Pinterest.

How cute are the little gold crowns on each chair, fringe streamers and diy pinata letters spelling out the birthday girl’s name?!

Love the little biodegradable  birch wood plates from eco-gecko topped with kumquats. And check out those gorgeous pink peonies in full bloom.

Donuts instead of cake or cupcakes? Why not.

At the end of the table a pair of drink dispensers from Pottery Barn are placed for guests to serve themselves. So simple.

Bold & Bright :: Miami Beach Apartment Tour

Recently House Beautiful toured the colorful Miami Beach apartment of interior designer, Robert Passal (loved his master bedroom for the Hampton Designer Showhouse in 2012). The mix of modern and traditional used throughout is a personal fave as well as the classic blue and white color palette that flows in both indoors and out. Passal is a master at combining pattern, texture and color. Take a look and I think you’ll agree!

To get just the right watery effect, he even paints the door in a bright blue car paint. What? yep.

Love the combo of pattern and color in this image. The Louis XVI–style chair upholstered in an African batik fabric looks amazing paired with the stunning swirl painting by Henrique Oliveira.

Love the clean, modern lines in the kitchen and the pops of bright color.

Passal mixes artwork and accessories beautifully here in the apartment’s entry and creates a fun, unexpected work area. The modern Tom Dixon chair is a personal fave!

In this bedroom, Passal covers the walls in a traditional blue and white toile, features an elegant blue velvet bed and adds a fun green accent with bed linens.

In the bathroom, square marble tiles cover both the walls and floor. Love the painting hung above the tub. So daring!

In the master bedroom, matchstick blinds are layered with ceiling to floor panel drapery in Quadrille’s Nomad pattern. They frame the sliding door beautifully.

Covered in gorgeous shimmery blue fabric, this powder room is a head turner.

And last, but not least, the outdoor patio which features traditional teak seating with blue and white cushions. It’s paired with a modern white Saarinen table by Knoll. Love!

I’m also thrilled to be over at Erin’s House of Turquoise today talking about my playroom + guest bedroom design project. More beautiful bright color!

happy decorating,

cristin
