Using Gold In Your Home Design

Using gold in home design can be traced as far back as ancient Egypt, having seen a resurgence throughout the many styles that have come and gone since then. Today’s use of gold in home decor pulls from a mix of these periods and has become very hot trend in the world of interior design. Discover some surprisingly easy ways to incorporate gold into your home, no matter what your personal style is.

  • Accessories. Dressing up a room with gold accessories is a great way to introduce the hue into your home design. Incorporate gold embossed frames or decorative trays to warm up living rooms, basements, or bar areas. Window treatments are another area you can accessorize with gold. Whether it’s gold patterned drapes or a single gold sash draped over the valance, incorporating gold around your windows will help capture the sunlight and bring warmth into the space.
  • Lighting. Like accessories, lighting is a great way to bring gold into any room in your home. From table lamps flecked with gold to elaborate chandeliers or standing light fixtures, there are a variety of lighting options out there than allow you to bring the warmth of gold into your design. For a simple fix, upgrade your existing light fixtures’ lampshades to ones with a warm gold print.
  • Furnishings. There are a variety of ways you can bring gold into a space with furniture. Look for chairs with gold-painted arms and legs or seek out a fabric that features a gold pattern. If you have media stands or end tables that feature drawers, simply swap out the hardware for gold ones to give it a metallic edge. Don’t want to buy new hardware? Spray paint your existing ones golden for a quick, simple update. Gold furnishings add a sense of elegance to any space, whether you incorporate a bold gold accent piece or spruce up an existing furnishing with metallic accents.
  • Accent Wall. Gold is an excellent wall color that can help warm, brighten, and expand the appearance of a room. Plus, it’s a color that plays nicely with other colors, so you can either incorporate it into any room in your home, no matter what the color scheme may be. Refresh your bedroom, entryway, or even hallway with a gold accent wall.
