Color Combo: Silver and White

Softer than black and white, but with a metallic edge, silver and white is clean and cool. It's a great color combination for a bathroom or a modern loft. It can be a little cold, but warming it up with an accent color can help. Using distressed silver and rich textures also adds depth. Click below for more.

The Moroccan pouf in the top image from Le Souk looks more modern in white, while the silver has a warm, aged patina.

Erica Wakerly's Houses Wallpaper from Walnut looks great with silvery carpet and a shell chair.

Silver-framed mirrors, like this Metal Landscape Mirror from West Elm, reflect a lot of light in a small space.

Philippe Starck is a master of metallic and glossy finishes, and he uses them in small doses to give a little kick to this white apartment.

Silver and white in the bathroom. This is the Newbury Etagere from Restoration Hardware.

Orla Kiely's Blossom Wallpaper uses gray hatch marks for a silvery effect. This photo is from Kiely's Spring/Summer '07 Line.

This chandelier from Alabama Chanin has a nice mix of distressed white paint and warm silver touches, so that it comes off looking very relaxed.
