cool silver were a decorating taboo.
Marrying metallics provides an intriguing contrast and texture and
they can be easily incorporated a little at a time.
I think we may have known that, don't you?
I have added a little shine to our family room mantle and kept
it low cost as well. I painted the white window frame which I
used for Thanksgiving gold.
I didn't even sand it down...and while I had the paint out the mason
jars got a fresh coat too.
Don't you think frames are just one of the simplest ways to
incorporate gold into a space and depending on the style of the
frame, they can add some glorious glam.
This is one of the spaces in which I incorporated a touch of gold.
I like the suggestion of gold nestled with white.
A little sparkle during these Winter months is a real mood booster
Metallics are a fun way to add a little drama, and can easily be
done with paint, wallpaper, or accessories.
Let's head on over to the kitchen now, I wanna show you the little
mixing I have done in here.
I kept the mix of metallics very low key in our kitchen, with silver
hardware, a gold leaf box and two simple gold chandeliers.
The two metallics play off one another without a huge commitment
the kitchen window to get a feel for how the different hues interact.
I am like a proud Mama over this tea cart-ask me if I have pictures
and I will show you my gal...
I think it was three years ago now, when I painted her gold,
yes indeed she was a hot gal before being gold was really cool.
I did not inherit a Great Aunt's tea set, so I have started collecting
my own random pieces of silver as I travel to and fro to visit the
They are random pieces, but by the time my collection is complete,
I will have a very eclectic and personalized mix. I am sure I won't
stop with collecting silver. I have really been considering painting
an entire piece of furniture gold or maybe a sunburst mirror.
How are you adding shine into your Winter days?
