In a silver chain
Of evening rain..."
~Thomas Lovell Beddoes
I have always loved warmer colors - pink, green, ivory. Shades of blue and purple aren't my favorite because I have always thought they were a bit cool. Still - those pale lavenders, robin's egg, greys, and shimmering silvers can be very beautiful in a room, even a little magical, when they find themselves in the company of well-loved objects and welcoming settings. Sometimes adding something to a room that has a bit of sheen can bring other colors into brighter relief. I have seen many gorgeous photos of homes with predominantly white furnishings and textiles and then here and there you see bright floral arrangements, mercury glass, and unframed mirrors. The silver and the roses make the white seem even more pure and refined. Years ago I started collecting little silver frames. I had no idea where I was going to put them because I tend to have objects and accessories that are a bit more gold, but they were just so exquisite! I couldn't pass them by. They sit next to pink flowers and china trays and it doesn't even matter that they don't match. My eye goes to them and all I see is that little bit of sparkle that makes everything around it prettier. Here are a few photos I have taken of silver things among, inevitably, my roses. Enjoy!
Today I am linking with Pink Saturday and Show and Tell Friday.
