Never have we ever heard anyone say they hate metallics. But we have heard you ask how to decorate with them! To lead the way, we've turned to Homepolish [1] and this Venice, CA, beach bungalow. With gold, silver, and brass details, each room is filled with metallic accents done right. From how to style them when living with your guy [2] to the best way to give your rental the Midas touch, find everything you need to know about polished hues below!

Gold in a kitchen? Yes. Why? Because it adds a glamorous touch, especially against white cabinets. To get the look on a budget, try this gold hardware DIY [5]; it's a great way to personalize a rental kitchen.

No, media units don't need to be black and boring. For a midcentury vibe, update your console with gold pulls and style a gallery wall [8] with modern art and silver frames.

Metallics in a bedroom are a must, but there is a right way to style them. If you're mixing styles with your guy, keep metallic accents subtle. Try a few flea-market finds like vintage ashtrays [11] on your nightstand, or choose lamps with a polished touch.

Aside from large pieces like a coffee table, unexpected metallic touches, like the inner rim of the light fixture, complete this glam yet sophisticated space.

If you favor metallic hues, keep larger pieces like your sofa and rug neutral [16]. A simple palette makes for a sleek foundation so accessories can stand out.

When in doubt, go big and go gold! We fully support the idea of using a lamp instead of a vase as a table's centerpiece. It's unexpected and a great way to add additional light without having to hang something. It makes for another great rental solution too!
