Saturday’s “Designing with Vintage” with Gail Smith-Peterson
Storage ideas for Silverware
Silver flatware is beautiful, the patterns range from simple to ornate. There is something extra special about a meal with silver utensils. What if using silver more often actually was beneficial in maintaining it’s elegant polish. Gently hand wash and dry it’s a must, it helps to eliminate the amount of harsh chemicals needed to keep them polished. Tarnish occurs when silver is exposed to air for long periods of non-use.
Here is a very cool vintage commercial size and heavy industrial bread/loaf pan that you can use for silverware found at Omero Home
I believe these beautiful pieces are meant to be used. I like to store a few pieces in this white wood box in the kitchen. Larger sets are in silver cloth. This box gets a lot of attention; guests ask what’s in the white box? Sometimes I’ll hide a special piece of chocolate in it for later!
These wood pieces would make great storage for silver.
My design tip:
Look for something vintage with character, change the knobs if you like and line with silver felt.
A beautiful summer weekend to you, dine with silver!
