Inspiration: Gold

Interior Design Inspiration Gold

What’s inspiring me right now?  Gold!  This precious metal has been used and admired in decor for thousands of years, but if you think it is too fancy or traditional for a contemporary home, then you haven’t seen the assortment of gold furnishings on the market.  Luxe, minimal, or exotic, old-world or new, there is something for everyone.  Don’t feel like you have to splurge on the real thing in order to achieve high style.  Regardless of the material – brass, silk, marble, paint, etc.  – the warm tone and soft luster of gold-hued items will enhance a wide range of styles.  Just keep in mind that a little bit goes a long way.  Maintain a fresh, modern feel by mixing a few carefully selected gold items with a variety of other colors and textures.

  1. I agree, gold is a great colour, so versatile. Its can be glamorous and hold a real presence in a room, it can add warmth, it can be subtle and discreet and contrasts brilliantly against many colours. I wrote a post ‘Be Bold with Gold’ let me know if you like it!
