Decorating with Silver & Taupe

Decorating with Silver & Taupe

I like to think that I am a very "black and white" person.

You see, I literally wear all-black clothing everyday, and I figuratively approach life with a measured and balanced perspective. It's a state of mind I fully embrace, so it's no surprise that my idiomatic personality permeates my lifestyle and my interior design aesthetic. 

Now, if you are like me, let me just say I adore you and your tastes. But if you are like Wendy and prefer a gray-er perspective, trust me—I see the allure. And just to prove it, let me show you three ways I like to pair silver and taupe.

1. Texture: No matter which pieces fill your space, texture is an easy way to make a room feel interesting and cohesive. Blending one or two of similar-yet-different tones will help your room come to life.

2. Dimension & Scale: Sometimes high-contrast isn't needed for high-drama. Play with oversized lighting and low-to-the-ground seating to keep things interesting.

3. Fine Finishes: When in doubt, go with the classics. Polished silver will never go out of style, so source items with similar profiles and hardware to make your room seem effortlessly designed.
