Call us magpies or perhaps just easily distracted, but we've always been fans of decor with a little shine to it. Gold, silver, bronze, copper — if it gleams, we're going for it. One great space for a dose of metallic style? Your kitchen!

Throw the traditional kitchen materials of wood and porcelain by the wayside and embrace metallics instead. They're simultaneously classic and modern, and they look good with any decor.

Here are five kitchens with metallic accents that made us swoon.

1. Nina Dobrev's Bright Bungalow

If the idea of decking out your kitchen in metallics is intimidating, remember that starting small can still make a big impact — like these copper draw pulls, faucet, and don't forget that stunning stand mixer!

2. Minimal & Modern in Brooklyn

The white cabinetry and walls make the most of this light-filled kitchen, while the wooden waterfall countertops (so stunning!) and brass range hood and faucet bring warmth.

3. A Feminine London Kitchen

The pinkish tones of a copper pot rack bring out the warm tones of even the most neutral of wall colors. It's perfect for decor with a more femme vibe.

4. Gold Accents in the City of Lights

Wallflowers need not apply — a gray-and-white marble backsplash and gilded cabinetry make a real statement in a galley kitchen.

5. Lighting Designer Marjorie Skouras' Hollywood Home

Of course, there's no need to go out and purchase all new metallic accents for your kitchen. A well-curated collection of copper pots has the same allure — just keep that polish handy!

What's your favorite way to mix metallics into your kitchen?
