Accessorizing with Silver and Gold

by Laura Casey Interiors on December 12, 2011

I know the saying goes “Diamonds are a girls best friend” but really how can we exclude silver and gold from that? It’s interesting how individuals have a strong preferece. Simultaneously I have been working on a house with an emphasis of silver and nickel accessories and hardware, and another family room that has a stronger brass influence. Loving these silver and gold looks right now….


What do you say? gold or silver?

I love them both. In our new addition, I was very attentive to the details and they can live happily ever after, silver and gold. I love brass or gold in the living area and for the practical every day spots, brushed nickel is wonderful. Chrome keeps me honest and leaves evidence of any little or big paw prints in our home.:) Copper is also one of my favorites although rather pricey.

Hummm….that would be tough I love them both when done well, as in all of the pictures above. I am a big fan of gold and silver leaf and even mixing the two. Lovely post.

I love both silver and gold. I particularly love the No. 3 photo from the top with the light velvet couch and dark painted cupboards on the inside. Do you know what magazine this photo came from or have any info about it. I would sincerely appreciate it. If you have paint colours that would abe great too.

If I have to choose one, I’ll choose silver — but I’ve been mixing, mixing, mixing and loving it!
