have large silver mirror and silver based lamps -- do we need to stick with silver for picture frames - or can I use gold - sticking to all the same feels a bit much....but maybe adding gold might be yuck -- thoughts?
Silver is a cool colour and works well with cool colours , gold is a warm colour - you can guess what comes next ! You can mix both in a room that has a mix of cool and warm colours but if it only has one or other it's better to stick to the one ! (IYSWIM )
That's the official line ! But try it and see if you like it ! Worst case you - return the gold frames and replace with silver ! Make sure you keep the receipt ! :-)
I would say no. We've been in our new house just over a month and I distinctly remember when we looked around the living room had all silver door handles, sockets, light fittings and curtain rail but the wall was spray painted gold and there were gold ornaments. I cringed at time n I cringe thinking bout it now lol
I do - I've got a silver Flos KTribe floor lamp, family heirloom silver vases, silver coffee table and a gold 1940s mirror in my sitting room. Looks just fine to me - all in the same "elegant but comfortable" vein that the whole room is about.
