I’m sure you are well aware of the gold trend! It’s been everywhere, in both fashion and interior design for the past few years and I bet it will stick around for the next 5 to 10 years.
Don’t get me wrong though, I’m not talking about all things gold and bling. I’m not referring to gold-plated Versailles style living rooms we used to see in the 1980’s. The full shiny look is ostentation gold and a lot of people in the Middle East actually love it!
What I’m talking about is understated elegance. So here are two ways you can use gold in your abode:
If you want to refresh your home without having to go through a total makeover, you can use gold in small details, as an accent: a gold frame, a small lamp or candle holder (2) will instantly inject a little sparkle and glamour to your space. Moreover, home accessories are easy to replace if you ever get sick of them.
Now, if you want your living room to look like a Hollywood movie set, go for a statement piece that will stand out as if you had a precious jewel. A gold dining table (1), chair (5) or ceiling light (4) will fill your space with shimmer and sophisticated luxury. Just pare down the rest of your space to keep the focal point clear.
