There’s something so beautiful about real pieces of silver, which all too often end up packed away, out of sight, in a cabinet or relegated to a sideboard.  Each piece of vintage silver is its own unique work of art—and with the right kind of care and polish, each individual piece, from vases to trays, to antique brushes or hand mirrors, and even pieces of flatware will shine in their own elegant way.  Why would you ever want to hide something so gorgeous in a cabinet?  If you’re looking for a way to showcase your own pieces of silverware but aren’t sure how to integrate them into your existing decor, our Frisco interior design services are here to help!  Here are a few of our favorite ways to showcase these amazing treasures or start your own collection.

Add Something Fresh and Bright

Antique silver vases, tea sets and cups get stuck up on a shelf, empty, all too often.  Brighten up these lonely pieces by filling them with fresh-cut flowers.  Whether you prefer a mixed bouquet or want to focus on a single color or kind of flower to draw the eye, your silver will be much more aesthetically pleasing and better integrated into the rest of your decor. 

Put Those Pieces Back To Work

Frequently, formerly useful pieces of silver like sugar bowls, trays, and dishes are taken out of service and set aside for special occasions.  Why wait for the one or two days a year to use something so lovely?  Bring some sophistication to the feel of any room by using those pieces to hold keys, mail, makeup brushes, pens or more!  Silver is more than durable enough for practical use and beautiful enough to show off! 

Searching Out Silver

If you’ve never inherited or purchased any silver pieces of your own but love the look, you’ll be pleased to learn that you can find your own interesting and stunning pieces without breaking the bank.  Vintage silver can be found for very reasonable prices at places like garage sales, thrift stores and antique shops.  Hunting out these treasures and building your own collection is part of the fun! 

If you’d like to find out more about how to showcase silver in your own home, our Frisco interior design services are here for you!  Drop us a line with your questions or suggestions about making your favorite silver pieces the highlights of any room.
