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!
