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.

These lovely silvered accessories will make Christmas shine in any room.

Glamorous bathroom. I love the silvered woodwork.

Heart be still!! Look at all those goodies!!

A stunning silver ornament chandelier. This would be amazing over a holiday table.

This is a very pretty wall treatment and casts a soft, almost mother of pearl like glow.

Silver Christmas  decorations are so rich and luxurious.

Pretty as is or add your own "pop" of color.

Fabulous walls! And the chandeliers are amazing.

The smoky mirrored panels and crystal sconce add warm glow and sparkle to this powder room.

There are so many wonderful metallic wallpapers to choose from. This room really works. The mirrored table, the silver velvet chairs and that paper!!!

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.

This lavender and silver bedroom is so pretty. Don't be afraid to mix patterns, just be smart about it!

Monochromatic silver room with a pop of color....stunning!

A fun silver Christmas tree.

Shinny and shimmering metallic leather will always bring a luxe look to an interior.

The sheet music is a great idea for a pretty holiday placemat. Add the silver charger and your friends will be impressed.

Silvery sheer fabric bed hangings make for a dreamy boudoir. (Check out the gold and silver wallpaper in the background.)

Old rhinestone earrings.......clever ornaments for a small silver themed Christmas tree.

Another wonderful silver wallpaper.

Silvery grey wall treatment and mirrors for a Hollywood Regency look.

Glamour at it's best. Diamond tufted silver headboard.

These are great colors to use with silver. Love the phone!!!

And if you are really into silver........why not take it on the road!
