20 Metallic Bits and Baubles to Dress Up Your Coffee Table

The one troublesome thing about interior decorating is deciding how often to update your style. Themes and colors come on trend and then go out pretty fast so it can be difficult to stick with what you’ve got for more than a few years without things looking a little dated. However, there is one decorating tip that never fails to impress and match whatever other colors you decorate with. It’s called metallic. Shades of gold, silver and copper will go with all your favorite decorating trends, throughout the year and all the holidays. So filling the spaces that catch the eye, like the coffee table, with metallic glints is a wise idea. Take a look at these 20 metallic bits and baubles to dress up your coffee table.
