Decorating with Metallics

As you've probably noticed, metallics are hot for 2008. There are many makers of metallic paints. My favorite is Modern Masters. I really like the look of a tone on tone painted wall using a matt finish and fat stripes of metallic. I've seen David Bromstad use this technique on his show, Color Splash and it looked great. My favorite color for this is a creamy white wall with pearl metallic stripes, very subtle and sophisticated looking.
Though silver and white gold metallics are very popular, we'll be seeing a lot more gold this year too.
