Modern Alchemy

gold + silver | via vmac+cheese

I’m the first to admit that in the blog world, there are certain accessories — both for home and for person — that are ubiquitous. Anything metallic is one of them. And yet, in this case, I don’t care. I’m still unapologetically into all things shiny. Metallics are the perfect thing to straddle and unite so many different types of styles; I often think they’re the missing link between a harmonious glam/modern or modern/fem combination.

Let’s talk about that gold fish scale backsplash. Isn’t it fantastic? I’m also slightly obsessed with these glasses from Anthro. The lowball version has ‘pooled gold’ fired into the bottom of the glass, to give off the effect that you’re imbibing pure gold. So fun!

    I think there was a point in time in the blog world where you could spray paint anything metallic and it would be successful. I’m personally loving brass right now!

    I adore all things metallic! You’re right that they are a notorious “blogger thing,” but I feel the same way – I love them too much to care ;)

    These are gorgeous pieces. I’m fully “moved in” to my apartment now, and looking for ways to decorate that feel sophisticated… and yet not so feminine that my husband feels the need to hang some antlers up in protest. Pretty sure this is a good jumping-off point.

    I do find it funny how every blogger seems to have the SAME expensive candles, gold flat wear, fur throws, and Etsy artwork, but I can’t help myself I love it too!
    I would LOVE to have that gold wishbone on my mantle!
