Heavy metals like copper, bronze, and pewter add a powerful pop to interiors this season.
1. “For a glamorous pop, I love these metallic zebra pillows.” Patch, 46 Waltham St., 617-426-0592
2. “I love this sleek cabinet that combines wood and lacquer in a matte pewter frame.” Montage, 75 Arlington St., 617-451-9400

4. “Piet Boon, known for its passion for rich and natural materials, offers this patina bronze table. This piece would bring life to any interior, no matter how minimalist it may be.” Showroom Boston, 240 Stuart St., 617-482-4805
5. “In this collection of Biedermeier candlesticks with oxidized bronze finish, elements of classic European design get updated and reconfigured into something timeless.” E.R. Butler & Co., 38 Charles St., 617-722-0230
The glimmer of the 1970s is back in style for home décor this fall thanks to mixed metals. Lexington-based interior designer Rachel Reid has been at the top of Boston’s home scene for 20 years and continues to put together timeless interiors that reflect her sleek aesthetic and her penchant for power pieces with strong lines. “I believe in environments that are modern, thoughtfully appointed, and comfortable,” Reid says. “Good design keeps the client’s lifestyle and needs as the focal point of every project.” Reid is using mixed metals in all their forms in her projects this season (which recently included a private estate in Brookline and new construction in Newton), whether that means a Piet Boon table or a light fixture that doubles as a work of art. She shared with us her favorite on-trend pieces to make your home shine.
