As I was scrolling through my inbox this morning, an email subject line caught my interest ~ “The golden rule of mixing metals: THERE ARE NO RULES!”‏  Ok, truth be told the email was from the popular jewelry maker, Alex & Ani.  However, as a designer with a custom home builder I am often asked if it is ok to mix metal colors in your door knobs, plumbing and light fixture, and I always respond THERE ARE NO RULES!

Designing your perfect home is not a lot different than designing a perfect outfit.  You just need to know what you like!  The Alex & Ani blog included a quiz to determine your mixed metal persona.  Check it out!

Now I know why I love the silver/gold mix that is on trend currently with some of our partner vendors like Kohler’s Vibrant Brushed Bronze or Kichler’s Sterling Gold.  Once you determine your style let the experts at Javic Homes help you pull together your perfect home!
