I admit, I might have a little love affair going on with a few different things...
Like the perfect french chairs
a plethora of ticking stripes, collections of white dishes
those gold scissors- that's a new one ;)
silver is definitely on that ever growing list of things that makes my heart swoon
Tarnished or polished
vintage or new
that soft sheen and patina of silver charms me
and somehow, it always seems to find a way into my rooms and designs
Flowers on the nightstand
and several pieces of mismatched flatware tied together
is always a favorite addition to a table
Though I love silver wearing that slightly brassy toned and mottled tarnish
and leave it that way quite often
I actually love polishing silver- it's kind of relaxing to me honestly
and of course, silver is absolutely beautiful when it shines
Silver can easily be dressed up or dressed down depending on the occasion
and for this outdoor table setting
silver adds just the right amount of something-something
to make the table.
A mixed bouquet of white stock
and vibrant greens clipped from our yard create
a simple, natural centerpiece
and is all that is needed on the farmhouse table.
Add a little bit of silver sparkle in the 'vase', goblets and flatware
and it is perfect.
I am joining a group of bloggers celebrating our love of French inspired designs
hope you will stop by and visit each of them
No matter how you decide to use it,
adding a few found pieces of silver to your home and rooms
is an easy and certain way to add that perfect amount of charm and elegance.
