Be Bold with Gold

Image

Gold is one of those colours, you may like/hate, enjoy wearing it, but not decorating with it, or it may be a colour that never crosses your mind. Does it mean ‘party’ or ‘posh’ or simply a colour that can save the world from beige!!

Well, in regards to furniture we feel gold is a winner. Use it to make a bold statement in a grand room, use it to warm up a cold space, or use it to delicately enhance a style. Gold is a colour to have fun with and use in many ways. It’s a colour that you can be extravagant with, its regal. Or it can be a fantastic colour to soften a dark interior by contrasting against black and adding a bit of depth to a scheme.

Gold doesn’t look out of place on heavily carved furniture, like the exquisite dressing table above, which is simply ‘enhanced’ by the gold and made to look even more stunning. The above piece would look beautiful as a feature in a large bedroom that was in need of definition, or in a high ceiling room where you need to drawer your eye down a bit to lose the sense of ‘too much space’.

What are your experiences of gold, good or bad?

    I am absolutely loving gold this year. Accent tables with a onyx lacquer top and gold base, intricately carved frames and decorative vases with gold detailing add such richness to any room. Really, what’s not to love?

    What an interesting piece of furniture! It could look magnificent in the right room.
