Sparkling silver and pure white can provide a delightful transformation to an interior space. The tones of shade and colour are potent ways to offer a brand new style and appearance. Even something as small as an artificial flower - such as the Leonardo Artificial Basic Tulip, White(above) - can help to change the look and feel of a place.
Here are some tips for decorating and styling with silver and white.
A Blank Canvas
Starting a home renovation or a new decorating project is made easier to organise with white walls. Rather than being put off by all that white, see it as an opportunity to do whatever you like! A fresh start is offered by a blank canvas, and one that you can fill in with new ideas and new creation.
Making the Space Seem Bigger
White surfaces and walls can also stretch an interior out, making the whole area seem bigger. Smaller rooms can benefit from this valuable method of transformation, and minimise the crowding that can happen in busier rooms.
Silver and Metal on White
Silver decorations look stunning against white or pale backgrounds. And with Christmas soon approaching why not try out a silver approach this year? The above Leonardo Scandi Geometric Hanging Decorations provide a striking way to showcase a silver on white look. The three different geometric shapes have been fashioned with a ribbon for easy hanging to a tree or frame.
Framed Artwork on White
Framed art pieces can produce even more of an impression when hung up against a white or pale background. The clean slate provides an opportunity for the artwork to really stand out, without any competition or distractions. The frame itself is also allowed more room to breathe. It provides a great showpiece for an interior, or acts as part of a greater collection set up to inspire and captivate.
The above Blush Photo Frame by XL Boom is a stylish way to draw attention to a photo or piece of art. The retro style frames are available in a variety of bold colours and are crafted from acrylic and powder coated metal.
Using smaller sections of strong colours against a larger white or plain framework is an exciting method of getting more out of the various sections of an interior. Try highlighting a corner of the room in a strong colour or by using a coloured bath mat or towel in a white walled bathroom. The contrast can look inviting and wonderfully styled.
Take the Bath Mat, Azure Blue for example. Created by Zone Denmark, the 100% cotton bathmat brings an elegance and bold colour tone to the bathroom. As a way of providing a strong contrast with pale, white walls it offers a great opportunity to experiment.
