Silver Situations

The more I think about it, the more I want silver to come back around. Interior design has been in love with brass and gold for a few years now and I hope that love proves to be long term. Brass finishes are gorgeous and warm and inviting. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t mix it up a bit. Metal finishes shouldn’t be so all or nothing. We should start looking at putting them all together.

Brilliantly, designers like Vincenzo de Cotiis are using silvered brass, making a vintage clock-making technique fashionable again. This type of metal is so fabulous, and I really long to use it in a room that is otherwise detailed with warm, disco brass finishes. Yum!
