When it comes to sleek and modern home designs, the color silver is one of our favorites. Not only does this precious metal bring a taste of glamour without the gaudiness, but the soft and enchanting glow never fails to enchant any interior designer. Best of all, this color doesn't isolate itself with just one of two design trends. Silver can be used for the romantic-inspired, sleek & modern, as well as more rustic decor. Here are 6 ways to use silver that will add a touch of tasteful glam to your home decor.
