Gold may be rare, but it’s utilized often in interiors, and we absolutely love this metallic hue. Gold accents add a touch of luxury to any space and can look particularly striking against whitewashed finishes. This metal has a softness that shines and stands out without looking too harsh. Deep warm colors often look best when accompanied by gold accents, but alongside black and white, this metal can add an ultra-covetable brightness. The sophistication and richness of gold accents make them a great addition to any space that is already chic and wants to fully exude elegance. Adding even small touches of gold make a space look more expensive and tasteful, especially when complemented with a mixture of sophisticated fabrics and materials like velvet, wood, and glass. Mirrors, tables, and light fixtures are decor pieces that wear gold well and are sure to dress up a space. The key to incorporating gold in an interior is to avoid overdoing its elevated look and veering into a tacky or gaudy aesthetic. Using subtlety and thoughtful, tasteful touches throughout a space is the answer. We tend to avoid relying on one fixture or element to bring in the gold and instead create the perfect “je ne sais quoi,” for example, by using gold hardware on light cabinetry.
