Shut Up!!!

I recently used this bed in a job of mine.
When we first viewed it in the catalog....
at first view it looked as though it was a antiqued silver velvet.
But it is not. 
 It is however - antiqued silver - silver with a faint gold wash over it
This is my favorite metallic of all. 
The company is Theodore Alexander.
The collection is called Argento.

The bed arrived and was delivered....
I called my client and asked her "How do you like it?
I asked her, "Is it beautiful?"
She screamed into the phone 
"It is SHUT UP gorgeous!!!"

Music to my ears. :)
I am considering the above chest for next to the bed and a skirted table on the other side.
You have to be careful when using a fabulous finish like this.
You definitely don't want too much of it.
Small doses...although that bed is not so small.
( But...OMG, it is a show stopper and that is what she wanted.)
It will lessen the effect.....
or shall we just say 'it will become too much of a good thing.'

The collection - Argento is made up of 
all pieces in this finish .

I added one more piece of this in the room on the other side.
A small tall chest to anchor the finish and balance the room.

Do you likie???

It really is breathtaking in person, and worth every penny.
