Various interior design experts say more homeowners want to include wood and metal in their home décor. I found that insight interesting since we just invested beautiful wood flooring in several rooms of our home. The wood flooring makes the rooms warm and inviting. You can add wood to your home by using wood bowls, wood frames for your wall art, or placing twigs in floral arrangements.
Wood and metal is also emerging as a focal interest in jewelry. Artists are combining the two materials with both high shine and matte finishes. Wood beads are making a comeback both in natural tones and painted. Metal has always been popular in jewelry making with silver and gold the top choices, but look for pewter and bronze to make a statement in pendants and beads.
Wood and metal can be powerful when used separately and even more powerful when intermingled. Give it a try!
