Gold or Silver?

 
before

This dining room sparkles! 
So why was I needed? 

A friend asked me to change the color of her mirror from antique gold to antique silver.  She felt the cool silver color would suit the room better, because it would complement the crystal chandelier.

The gold frame relates to the background of the wall paper
A few hours later, after applying silver leaf and a toning glaze, we re-placed the mirror on the wall and stood back to enjoy the change.  

Both gold and silver work in the room, but each gave the room a slightly different flavor.  There was no "right" choice, just a matter of preference.

The silver frame plays off the leaf design in the wallpaper
