Style Picks: Ancient Metal

By Isha Marwah

After 70′s it is the first time brass is being so strongly used in interior design. Along with its other warm metallic counterparts (copper and bronze), brass is also seeing a huge revival. Beaten, folded or polished decorators are enjoying brass’s luxurious, yet industrial appeal, it is seen in everything from chandeliers, hanging lights, tables, dressers, chairs, bath and kitchen fixtures and decorative accessories. Brass is an affordable metal and is perfect for adding an element of luxury and timelessness into 21st century interiors. Here are some modern interiors that are inspiring us

Moods of Women

Women are the most important person in every individual life. The self taught artist Suraj Dutta is set to present his latest exhibition of artworks on woman as a part of “Moods of women”. In today’s world where there are molestation issues against women, artist would like to portray beautifully how a woman reacts to different situation. Suraj’s bold experimentation with coloring led directly to the Synthetics style of modern art with gold leafing, while his expression of the inherent meaning of the subjects in his paintings.

5 Women Love Colours - 75,000

Artist and Interior Designer Suraj Dutta, the Gold Leafing Studio says, “My Major hurdles was to use colors on Metal Leafing (gold / Silver / Copper). It was really difficult to maintain the acrylic and pastel colors on leafing canvas and at the same time to capture moments of women moods, with highlighting the gold leafing or silver leafing on the canvas because of its delicacy. I am glad my experiments paid off.”

Timings 11:00am to 7pm
Where: IQ Homes, 190/ 1520, Motilal Nagar 1, Sejal Park, BEST road, opp Neeta building, Goregoan west

A dash of Gold

Gold is a colour most of use feel a bit wary to try into our homes, even though most of us love it in other areas of our lives like jewellery, clothes, handbags and even make-up. For our interiors most of us find it too extravagant or opulent. I feel it can add a touch of elegance and make a space look grand if we manage to incorporate it in the right way.Fusion Access has launched its latest collection- Dacoit Gold bringing to you a spectacular range of furniture and accessories in shimmering gold, silver, champagne and gun metal leaf.The collection includes Baroque Thieves Gold, Sarpanch amongst some of the furniture pieces of the line.Also on display are the beautiful and unusual wall art prints to complement this metallic collection.

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you are still a bit scared to go in for a complete gold look or furniture you can try to incorporate it with various colours like white, black, navy blue and maroon. And instead of furniture incorporate in accessories.
