Mix your metals

The age old "rules" of fashion are not for us or our generation as a whole. One would be hard pressed to find someone these days who won't wear white after Labor Day... But what about the more subtle rules, like don't wear navy & black together or don't mix your metals... Silver jewelry goes only with silver jewelry and gold with gold. 

These rules are somewhat ingrained into our collective psyche and you may not even realize you're following them unless you stop and think about it. If you stick to the "No mixing your metals" rule, just think of all that jewlery sitting lonley at home when it could be out having fun!

Time to break the rules. Throw on all your chains at once, put your beautiful silver pendant on a gold chain. Mix it up.

The same goes for your bracelets, your rings & your pretty little ears. 

If mixing metals in the jewelry world is old news to you and you're already a mixing pro, then why not branch out into your home's interior? 

The idea that we could mix metals in our decor was eye opening to us and so much fun! 

I mixed metals for example when I got the bathroom sconces I was dreaming of without having to change all my sink hardware, at first I was nervous and thought it wouldn't work, but I think it totally did. 

What's good for the bathroom is good for the kitchen, and these pretty spaces proves that mixing metals can be modern and sleek. 

Break rules, have fun & mix it up.
