We just love a warm metal, especially in the image above. Gold fixtures contrast perfectly with a cool, grey-veined backsplash. For a pulled-together look, extend the bright metals to your shower, towel racks, and other metal accents in your bathroom. You can also mix metals, just be sure to keep it to two or three varieties and establish one as the dominant color.
