Decorate With Silver For Stunning Interiors..........Especially At Christmas

This is last in a series of  posts dedicated to decorating with colors that are especially beautiful  at Christmas. And it doesn't get any prettier that SILVER. There are two kinds of silver. One is icy cool while the other is more burnished, almost nickel in appearance. It's my favorite and what I call warm silver.  Nothing brings sparkle and shine to a room quite like silver. And being a southern girl, I do love sterling silver and actually enjoy polishing and using my antique pieces for entertaining. Decorating with silver is great for creating stylish and impressive rooms that when done right, can look very expensive. The use of mirrors can give a room a silver glow also, so don't forget that this is an alternative to painting. I would suggest  mercury glass mirrors for wall space as it tends to have more of a timeless Old World appeal. Whether you paint, paper, upholstery, or accessorize with it, you will love the glow of silver in your interiors.



Enjoy and take in the sparkle and glow.

This is a beautiful room with its layers of silver from the stripped silver wallpaper to the shimmering reptilian fabric on the chairs. Add in the metallic draperies and what could possibly be a burnished ceiling ( hard to tell from this pic) and this room GLOWS.

For a do it yourself project try painting a piece of furniture silver. Just make sure you purchase a good silver paint....not the spray can variety!!

This is something else you could try yourself. Silver leaf some gorgeous chairs and cover in a metallic fabric or even leather.

A pretty metallic ceiling treatment and what looks like silvery grey velvet on the wall behind the bed makes this room so stylish.


I can't believe the old silver trees of my youth would ever make a comeback, but aluminum trees are everywhere again.

  1. My dear, dear Lisa.

    YOU GRABBED MY HEART here with this display of what I think is the finest of Christmas colors. Silver and gray and white to me, are the epitome of the cold yet WARM feel of this decorating season and every image here is perfectly chosen my dear! THAT WREATH IS GORGEOUS!

    Thank you for that Van Gogh quote you left me. That is exactly what it takes to progress. Grab your instrument of the trade and start all over again,and that is what I am doing, and I am finding success in that.

    I am so confused as to why your gorgeous posts never ever show a new post? Anita

  2. Thank you for visiting Anita. I love silver at Christmas too. It's one in a series of posts on white, gold, jeweltones, red, and green decor especially at Christmas. The white is pretty too if you get the chance to check it out. Zach has checked my feed and says it is going out and my pageviews are increasing steadily, so I know the feed is working. I'm averaging 300 per day which really excites me. I know that is peanuts to you veterans but thrills me!! The train post is the one I did as you were changing your page. Maybe something happened during the changeover. Have a great Thursday!!!
