8 Ways to Brighten Your Space with Gold

by ·

To me, the return of metallic gold means a return to luxury and patina. I love the feel gold accents make on a space. It takes a boring space and adds in brightness and depth to create a refined and pulled together look. To achieve the look you don’t need a lot of gold, you just need a few strategic pieces that will go a long way. Here are some of my favorite ways to do it.

  1. Domaine Home. A single piece of lighting. Focusing on just one piece of lighting will create a focal point and will elevate the space substantially. Try a chandelier in a gold or brass finish.
  2. Lauren Conrad. Gold accessories. One of my favorite ways to bring in gold is with golden accessories like these office supplies in a stapler, phone and tape dispenser. The table lamp grounds the table.
  3. Design Love Fest. Small pieces of gold furniture are an easy way to add in the finish without committing too much like painting or installing a piece of lighting. Here, two small side tables create the look.
  4. Lonny. This simple gold trim on the moldings creates a sophisticated and refined look. 8 Ways to Brighten Your Space with Gold
  5. Design Sponge. The gold accents set against black and white create a graphic and polished look. A gold bookcase with a gold throw is just the right touch needed to achieve the look.
  6. Martell Home Builders. Again, black and white is a great canvas for gold! Here, are pieces that are a great way to add in character and patina.
  7. Design Sponge. Black and white strikes again! With gold decals on a black wall, a striking backdrop is created! Plus, gorgeous lamps with gold touches.
  8. NY Magazine. A gorgeous table set in a gold finish brings romance and sophistication to this office space.

Would you go for the gold like these spaces?
