Metallic lighting is a great way to amplify this effect. The Hue lighting range combines thoroughly modern design with a selection of bold metal colours. We love this table lamp in Rust for an unusual colour that’s sure to pack a punch in the style stakes.

The Sensu clock in Gold will look like a beautiful disc of sunlight on your wall. Effortlessly modern and with a quirky elegance, it’s a great way of transforming a plain wall into the focal point of your room. Pair with black and more gold for a bold look or tone it down with delicate pastels for a shimmering summer style.

The most important thing with this trend is to be unique. Find an ornamental figure that embodies your personality – just make sure it comes with a metal finish! We love this Astronaut figure, made from ceramic with a copper finish.
