Go Bold With Gold

Gold has been creating a big splash in home layout, showing up in ceilings to fixtures. The luxe colour popped up in new, daring applications in the 2012 International Contemporary Furniture Fair and the High Point Market. Designers got creative when employing the classic metallic, marrying it with other on-trend materials like marble and brass to the greatest chic statement. Let these metallic spaces motivate you to go daring with golden in your home.

Create an entire vignette of gold furniture and accessories. Try using gold almost. The metallic color works with anything when toned down from a black or white background, which means you can make a large visual flair without going totally overboard.

Gold accessories may feel updated and on fashion when paired with brass in some fashion — if it’s a mirror overhead or detailing in the furniture.

Maximize your golden by pairing it with timeless marble. Marble sinks are not anything new, but this one introduces an entirely new level of panache with golden hardware, detailing and exposed legs. A mirror framed in golden visually pulls the metallic beams upward.
