Sneak Peek: Best of Silver

6ariel
Now that we’ve featured gold and copper, it feels only right to round out our best of metallics by showcasing silver. While I may be partial to the warmer metals, I love the cool refinement that silver brings to a home. While combing through the archives I noticed a frequent historical connection, since its common to see examples of silver in antiques and family heirlooms. Whether you collect antique silver or just want to add a sleek, modern touch to any room in the home, there’s something for everyone in these 13 examples of silver from our Sneak Peek archives. -Shannon

    Wonderful ribbon holder!

  4. Nina says:

    I so need this! I have an antique teapot, coffee pot, and creamer that are slowly tarnishing in the back of a kitchen cabinet. Maybe it’s time to take them out and find a way to display them! Thank you for inspiring me!

  5. I love that silver teapot and serving tray!

  6. Ella says:

    I’m thinking of re-upholstering my sofa and considering having it done with two colors, e.g. the cushions with a different color than the rest of the sofa. Can you please do a best of two colored sofas so I can find inspiration?

  7. Nadine says:

    Silver is beautiful. But what about pewter? It’s not as expensive. It shines just as much. And best of all, it does not tarnish! Pewter is a wonderful, versatile semi-precious metal to work with. I’ll just have to submit my work to Design Sponge :)
