Metal is in

Metals shine out among the new interior design materials. The return of metallic colours has been apparent for some time in both clothing and interior decoration fashion. Curtaining materials, wallpapers and small household objects glisten with a metallic sheen.

Perhaps only a glimpse of metallic sheen is apparent in furniture. 

All the bedroom walls have been painted with Taika Pearl Glaze using criss-cross strokes to make the surface appear more vivid.


Many people experiment with metallic colours on small surfaces, such as ornaments, picture frames or stencil patterns. Taika Pearl Paint comes in small 1/8 litre and 0.225 litre tins and is ideally suited for decorative details.


Large, metal-coloured walls act as an assertive interior decoration element. Rich golden tones are suitable where an intimate and somewhat festive atmosphere is desired. Oriental furniture and small objects come to the fore against a wall painted in Taika Pearl Paint Gold.


Interesting and impressive effects can also be achieved by using tinted Taika Pearl Paint. The Sole tint has an aura of old gold while Terra is reminiscent of copper brown.

A silver sheen helps emphasize modern and futuristic environments. Contrasts are sought from different things: for example, warm wooden surfaces and a silvery background form a homely unit.

Stencilling makes it possible to apply metallic geometric patterns to walls.

Pay attention to painting techniques when working with metallic colours. Spraying is best suited to smooth and even wall surfaces. Large surfaces are best covered by first painting with a mohair roller, after which the paint surface can be evened out by brushing with vertical or criss-crossing strokes.

A beautiful silver sheen is ideal for public areas. The uneven surface reflects light in different directions.  

Metal surfaces reflect light attractively. Silver placed next to warm-coloured wood looks both elegant and cosy.
