How To Decorate Using Gold

Gold can be a very modern color, so learning how to decorate using gold is key. While gold may not be platinum, beggars can’t be choosers, right? Try not to think of gold as a granny color or design element, rather as a shimmering accent that can hold it’s own in modern interior design. A hot trend is to use gold to transform the mundane into something special. How amazing do the pumpkins and gourds above look slathered in gold? Gold is a natural element, so it’s natural to use it!

  Interiors with Gold Decor

Gold can be the answer to adding just the right amount of oomph to a room. Gold-enhanced case goods, mirrors and seating can turn a room from plain into a serious glamour-puss situation.

Entertaining with Gold Decor

Gold is now a serious go to color for entertaining. Entertaining and dining accessories in gold makes everyday entertaining feel like New Year’s Eve. Gold also looks warm and wonderful when coupled with candlelight or a roaring fire. 

Gold Lighting

Gold lighting has been transformed into something modern when interesting geometry and architecture has been infused. Forget ornate candelabras, decorating using today’s gold lighting is bold and modern. Great examples are the sphere-shaped gold pendant light and the box-shaped, masculine wall lights above.
