Silver Sunday III Odds and Ends


        Did I plan to show everyone parts of my hall bath for Silver Sunday? No, but here is why I am.


        The walls are painted a charcoal metallic silver.  (Ralph Lauren paint)



        This is just another example,a little off the beaten path, from my quirky house that I love. I also like to use silver plate pieces from India. I like sparkle.


        And finally, two of my favorite pieces: a heart box that is in my study, and a vase that I use often in my living room.



        Go to the wonderful Gypsy Fish for other Silver Sunday examples.

Laura-I'd love to see the rest of the bathroom! I am redoing my powder room and really want to do something a little different on the walls. I love this paint. It is the perfect backdrop for your white collection

Hi Laura! Oh, I'm like Susan, I wanna see more of your bathroom. The wall color is so pretty and has a silvery look! What beautiful silver pieces! AND...the milk glass is gorgeous!!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Beautiful silver pieces and all so intricately carved. Just stunning. Hugs, Marty

Jane said...

That wall color does look beautiful. It is a perfect backdrop for your white and silver pieces. I'm thinking Ralph Lauren is going to have a run on their charcoal metallic paint :-)

Wow Laura, what a great idea. Love that deep color with all the white and silver. I like Indian silver and Mexican silver also, it has alot of detail and intricate designs. OK, so when do we get to see the rest of it!

I love the paint!! I think I have to come up with a project to use it.


Well Laura, I guess I'm with the crowd...when do we get to see the rest! I've not seen walls painted with silver before and really am attracted to what you have do...more more more!! Have a beautiful SS

The paint color is gorgeous. I love when someone picks a color I never would and it looks fabulous!! Love your white milk glass, too (it IS milk glass?).

The vase is beautiful, I can see why you move it around. And the heart box is precious!


Dixie said...

great uses of stunning silver... I like "bling" too... some in every room is a really good thing!

happy week. Dixie

Sandra said...

Laura - I love that paint. What a genius decorator you are!! We love bling, too. I am in the process of buying some holloware pieces for PD to use after she gets married! She likes it, also, but didn't register for any, so I am starting a collection for her. xoxo

Laura, Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. It brought me to your blog, which is just beautiful, filled with stunning pictures and fabulous posts! When I read you're retired, I have to admit I felt a tinge of jealousy. Oh well, at least tomorrow I can stay home and pretend! Have a wonderful week, Anita :)

Love the silver heart box - the more antique-y looking the more I love these things.

The French Bear said...

Hi Laura,
Silver walls...oooh, so pretty! I love your milkware AND your silver. I'm with everyone here. I'd love to see more of those walls.

I start garden chores in late March, because the snow usually stays until then. I start weeding very early and do Winter clean up and transplant things. I usually don't start anything from seed here because of our season being so short. I do start the sweet peas from seed.

Susan said...

You have a fun blog! I found you through Roxanne's blog. Don't you just love treasures found? I love "exploring" with my daughter, too.

Julia @ Vintage with Laces said...

Hi Laura, You had asked what the dish is called that I had served the eggs in. It's a silent butler. In former times those were used to collect ashes and crumbs. Mine isn't that old and since it has this glass tray I think it was made to serve something. I often use it for snacks :).


Marigene said...

I love the milk glass with the color of you wall, very pretty. Your silver is gorgeous, especially the little heart box.

My Grama's Soul said...
