All that glitters is not bronze, silver or gold, but with the Winter Olympic Games upon us, let’s focus on these honorary medals. They are symbols of achievement, perseverance, and honor… truly precious metals.
Team USA holds 25 medals as of today, putting them at the top! The medal breakdown so far: 8-GOLD, 6-SILVER, and 11-BRONZE medals.
While it’s not 1st place ranking in the Olympic Games, I think it reigns supreme when it comes to interior design. It’s cool, classy, and has an understated elegance. Silver reveals itself in metallic wood finishes, shiny stainless steel frames, decorative hardware, nailhead trim, intricate eglomise glass and mirrors.Take a look at some of my favorites:
Mirrored and Eglomise Furniture
Silver Leaf and Metallic Finishes
Nickel and Stainless Steel
Hardware and Nailhead Trim
Chandeliers and Lighting
So cheers to all our silver Olympians! We celebrate your supreme achievements in Sochi. May we all find a way to “take it up a notch”… so, inject some silver into your home design, and enjoy the results.
