IT MAKES WALLS GLEAM

Why use gold or any metallic on a wall? It reflects and catches the light, which makes it perfect for a dim space. It can even make a small room feel larger.

PERFECT MATCH WITH BOHO DECOR

Gold really lends itself to an eclectic vintage look. Use just a few pieces, such as a small, ornate frame, a statuette or a candlestick or two. These details will lift the design instantly without overpowering it.

SUBTLE AND MODERN

Gold chandeliers needn’t be ornate, though those work brilliantly in traditional or vintage-style spaces. Contemporary or midcentury modern chandeliers like this one are perfect for a more minimalist design.

WORKS IN SMALL DOSES

Unless you’re going for full-on, gold usually works best in small, subtle doses. So if you’ve hung pictures with gold in them, add just a couple of dashes elsewhere to give the design unity, and just stop there.

IT’S NOT AS SHOWY AS YOU THINK

For an on-trend look, search for an aged, antiqued or warm yellow gold that’s dull or matte in finish. Anything too bright, shiny or brassy will be hard to comfortably match with jewel tones.

CONTRAST WITH DARK COLORS

If you want your gold-tinged design to look its best, keep the color scheme around it simple, with the dark background shade complemented by just one other accent.

ENLIVENS A PLAIN ROOM

Contemporary neutral color schemes are so easy to live with and update, but they can lack warmth and depth. So why not solve that issue by making a piece of furniture in a striking gold tone a focal point?

IT WORKS LIKE ARTIFICIAL LIGHT

Aim for a yellow-gold paint for a contemporary scheme or a gold leaf-style wallpaper for a more traditional room. Just ensure that the gold leaf doesn’t look brown against your wall.

GREAT FOCAL POINT

Hanging a gold-framed mirror over a mantel is a classic way to add opulence to a room. Allow it to be the focus of the design, rather than have it fight for attention.
