How to use "Silver" color for your Interior Design?

picture-51 A little bit of Silver adds some sparkle and life to almost any room in your home. Dressers, light fixtures, accessories and mirrors all fit the bill; and this is not a passing fancy. Silver furnishings have been featured prominently in well-designed interiors for many years. Original antiques can can be pricy but there are many companies producing pieces that are affordable and eye-catching with this extra little glitter which is the silver color.

Here are great easy ways to add a little silver in your interior:

Re-frame a favorite piece of artwork with a silver frame. Go with polished silver for a contemporary look or antique silver for something more traditional. Here a beautiful moroccan style mirror with a dressy silver frizz!
