Clicking through some of our favorite Sköna Hem photos, we started to notice a trend. Many of the neutral rooms we love the most mix metal furnishings and accessories with wood, leather, jute and other earth-toned materials...

In some cases, the metal is worn with a vintage patina. In others, like the candlestick photo shown above, the metals appear in a range of silver tones that play off glossy surfaces. Still others incorporate painted metal, like the black lampshades in the fifth photo.

Despite the varied approach to metal, the constant in these photos is a welcoming, warm aesthetic that's great for blending styles. Vintage mixes with modern; hard surfaces blend into soft ones; warm wood tones are balanced with the hard edges of a metal chair or table.
