The world’s top athletes ‘go for the gold’ for a reason. Gold is and has always been, the most popular metal. Known for its glittering properties, gold represents sparkle, luxury and glamour. Whether you add a gilded gold mirror, gold patterned wallpaper or a gold tray to your décor, it’s easy to add instant style to your surroundings using gold elements. Gold is one of the hottest interior design trends 2017 and while it’s said to have made a comeback, it never truly went out of style.
Want your home to reflect your opulent good taste? Follow these “golden” rules:
Use gold to add glamour to a master suite
A bedroom is one of the best places to show off this exquisite metal. An upholstered headboard in a gold fabric, a gold leaf bedside table or a painting with a gilded gold frame will all add easy elegance and luxury to a room. Drape a gold coloured throw at the foot of the bed or choose an upholstered bench in a divine fabric that has painted gold feet. How about a white dresser that displays a golden tray of perfume bottles? Even the smallest gold touches such as knobs or drawer handles will go a long way in giving a room an extravagant look and feel.
Use gold to make a statement
Gold nesting tables or a gold coffee table can create visual interest in a living room, while an oversized gold cabinet has eye-catching appeal in the dining room. Hang an antique gold mirror over a console in the entryway or display a gold floor lamp in the office. A gold plant stand can bring even more light to a solarium, while gold candlesticks and vases can lend a sophisticated touch to a bookcase or table arrangement. A striking gold side table is a definite statement-making piece of furniture alongside a white couch or elegant chaise longue, while a mirrored gold vanity adds Hollywood glamour to a bedroom.
Accessorise with this popular metal in every room
There are unlimited ways to add golden accents to every room in your home. A gold lampshade in the study, gold fixtures in the bathroom, gold jewellery box on a guest room table, or gold lantern on the patio — each of these can take the elegance factor up a notch. You can even skip the primary colours and add gold polka dot wall decals to a nursery to welcome baby home in style.
