Gold is forever in home décor, just as diamonds are in love. Here is a deluxe trend worth making your own — while decadence and comfort is at the heart, decorating with gold can be approached in many ways and often the richest results come from the subtle and surprising details. Although, don’t hold back: relish the extravagance of this precious metal and all of the edgy and radiant design options. Gold is for embracing.
Rich Industrial or Vintage Chic?

Gleaming and pure, straight from the earth or glamorously antique, as though straight from a previous life: gold runs the shade and style spectrum. Will you luxuriate in the opulent look — your home all immaculate metal details, lush silk throws in gold and perhaps a work of traditional art framed in an ornate gold frame. Or allow eras and aesthetics to come together in the love of gold with an industrial and contemporary kitchen — details in gold, copper and brass — leading through to a classic, lustrous living room.
Details are Golden
Gold shines far and can be its most luxurious in the details: door handles, framed around artwork and lining kitchen benches. Look for opportunities to get artistic with embossing and always consider gold or gold plated elements such as light stands, vases and sculptures that bring stories along with the deluxe aesthetic.
In Bathrooms, Gold Shines

Even one gold tap can elevate prep time to pampering time. And flecks of gold can sparkle from marble tiles or ceramic vanity tops to add glamour and mystique to a room that’s all about self-care. And if that’s so, how about a gold sink that will sit at the heart of your bathroom, while adding silk and shine to the water you bathe in?
See Yourself in Gold
An immaculate and well cared for mirror transforms a space, especially small rooms that come alive with the light and glass reflections that accentuate the room’s best features. Frame that reflection in gold. Then embellish the rest of your home — hang an industrial frame in the bathroom, then get opulent in the living room or your home’s entranceway, which deserves to greet visitors ass the lap of luxury.
Gold Brings the Light
With a touch of gold hanging from the ceiling, daytime will always promise and night times will always be an occasion. Consider lighting every room with golden lamp and light shades, mixing industrial with modern designs and, of course
new and vintage gold chandeliers, which are the peak of luxury, whether ornate and polished or artsy and raw.
