Vintage Simplicity...

I have to say - hands down my favorite combinations right now are shimmering tones of metallic finishes such as silver, crystal, steel, zinc and glass combined with a neutral elegance.  
I just love the glow next to the rawness of crusty, chalky white and gray tones.  
This look works perfectly for Scandinavian or French country interiors:

"Metallic finishes will reflect light and bring life to matte surfaces.   I love creating layers of interesting textures and often use steely dark grays and jet black mixed with delicate, dirty off-white to create smart, flattering spaces."  Dominique Kieffer

... So dreamy!
