Color Combos for Silver Wall Art
When it comes to combining colors with silver, you have two main options. The first, is to create an entirely monochromatic space. This is a daring trend that incorporates similarly cool tones for a single-hued look. The alternative is pairing silver with a contrasting shade. Pick a color that brings you joy, and use it to juxtapose the cool modern hue. Vibrant tones like pink, purple, and orange look excellent with silver accessories and wall art.
White and Silver Wall Décor
White is the perfect shade to pair with silver. This cool-toned, ultra-classy combo is truly timeless. If you are still working on curating your interior, silver and white are a great way to avoid future clashing décor. White goes with almost any color – silver included! Choose a piece of wall art with white and silver as the two main shades. This will ensure that your wall art will match whatever existing décor you have in your interior. This innocuous color combo is perfect for adding a contemporary touch to your space. Try upgrading your workspace with white and silver details for a contemporary, non-distracting space. Your goal when creating the perfect office space should be to blend practicality with style. White and silver wall art will add a trendy touch that won’t overwhelm your interior. If your ideal space is chic and contemporary, this neutral combination is right up your alley. Plus, the metallic illusion of silver will set your space apart from the typical grey. If you want to offset the neutral tones, opt for live greenery or a houseplant for a classy pop of color.
PS The combination of white and silver also works well in bedrooms and exude a calming effect.

Metallic Décor: Pro Tips
ElephantStock's interior design expert Elimar Lobo Sáenz shares her tips for 2022 metallic trends:
"Add glam to any space by applying metallic wallpaper as an eye-catching accent wall. Silver-toned fixtures and appliances are still in the lead when it comes to modern metallic finishes. However, you don’t have to stick with solely stainless steel. Explore other silver-tinted variations such as nickel and chrome. You can also play with different finishes from brushed metal to highly polished. If your style leans more traditional, don’t stray away from silver completely! Silver décor can also help create a Hollywood Regency-inspired look. From Art Deco to 2022, you can’t go wrong with silver."
Large Silver Wall Art Sizes
“Wall art that you want to hang over furniture, such a large sofa in your living room, should be somewhere between 2/3 and 3/4 of the furniture's overall width. To measure the ideal art size to hang above your furniture, use this example: If your couch is 6 feet wide, multiply it by 0.66 and 0.75. You would need a canvas between 3.96 feet and 4.5 feet wide to fit impressively above the couch.
If your ultimate goal is to create a focal point, go with these dimensions: 66"X33" This is the ideal option for starting an oversized gallery wall or hanging a multi-panel piece. Add a statement print to any room in your home that has an expansive, empty wall. Just make sure to measure the space before installing your canvas, as this size can look overwhelming in a room with smaller walls.
If you’re in search of something really dramatic for a large wall, go with 68"X45"! If you want to cover the entire wall above your couch, this is the perfect selection for your space. It makes your space look super dramatic with a hint of luxury.”
