Many people shy away from using gold to decorate their homes for various reasons. Some people consider it overly pretentious, while others don’t believe it coordinates with their style. However, over the years, gold has remained popular due to one characteristic in particular — its timelessness. Gold is timeless because of its resonant, rich nature, which has long been a symbol of the elite and relatable to humanity’s age-old quest for wisdom and clarity.
As a design element, gold can be introduced in a number of ways. Accessorizing with metallics can bring warmth and demureness to a space. But, if you’re worried about being too gaudy, you can incorporate small, gold accents that are still impactful in any well-designed interior. Pairing gold with touches of natural fibers can ground the intensity of a bright hue. Though, it’s important to retain some natural elements to keep your space from appearing too overdone.
Mixing and matching metals is also a great way to create a spruced-up transitional space. Vintage brass, copper and nickel can all be used to create a cohesive look. Metallic colors mix well with a variety of color schemes, so don’t be afraid to play with lustrous shine during your next project.
