Metallics: Gold!

Bring some warmth into your home with gold metal tones! The richness of gold is making a huge splash this season, so forget the 90’s gold trim and embrace the elegant infusions we are seeing today. Using old in fixtures will be a bold and striking use of the renewed metal hue, like this faucet below – and check out that tile on a previous post here. Mixing with warm honey tones, creamy beige’s and deep chocolate browns will work well.

A chandelier or lamp is a great place to use a bold gold metallic, and mixes well into both contemporary and traditional home designs. Check out these two homes with totally different styles- one family friendly, air and open, the other moody and dramatic- and just a bit sexy! Both use hits of gold accents and in both cases- look fantastic!

Wallpaper with a champagne or gold hue will pick up the lighting in the room and play with shadows, which make a gorgeous entry way or accent wall. Try adding metal wall decor for texture and shadow play, and using with warm brown accents adds an inviting feeling to a space.
