New Year’s Eve is all about champagne, as well as glitter and gold home decor! There is something about the promise of a new year, endless possibilities and resolutions that feel like a golden opportunity...why not be literal and embrace the gold?
The shimmering frivolity of this night can easily be captured and become super chic home decor if you know where to look.
I found some fabulous examples of glittery gold accessories and home furnishings on The Zhush. There are two ways to approach this design style: big and bold or subtle and sly.
Glitter can embellish just about anything from clothing to electronics and can heighten any day objects into something worthy of a New Year’s Eve celebration.
When it comes to gold home furnishings everything is fair game. Gold looks good everywhere and can even work with other metals like nickel, black/bronze and silver.
I think the most popular gold item must be the stylish framed mirror. However, the trend is moving towards gold becoming a mainstay in lighting and hardware. Gold table lamps, floor lamps and sconces add a richness to any room, but the real daredevils will opt for gold pulls, knobs and faucets in kitchens and bathrooms.
Regardless how you implement gold into your home design I hope it sparkles for you like the most festive New Year’s Eve.
