10 Sleek and Chic Ways To Use Gold Decor

Copper may still be ruling the ranks in the metallic trend, but gold decor is forever.

Metallic accents are a great way to add depth and dimension to any room in your home. Although you may be yearning for copper, chances are that in ten years times, it will be more dated than 80s chintz. On the other hand, gold has been a popular interior choice since the Ancient Egyptian times. Long story short: gold is a trend that is timeless.

Today we show you ten stunning ways to decorate with gold that will give your home a stunning and on-trend edge.

1. Gold Tapware

For decades, silver has been our go-to hue for tapwares, shower heads and other bathroom goods. Despite this, there is something so stylish and eye-catching about gold tapware.

When paired with dark tiles or a statement pattern, gold tapware has a bohemian elegance that makes it a quirky and beautiful choice for any bathroom.

If you are looking to decorate with gold in your living room, green may just be the way to go!

Although this combination may seem quintessentially ‘Christmas’, deep jungle greens and splashes of gold decor are a match made in tropical heaven.

Opt for deep, cool-toned greens such as emerald and teal to stop it from screaming ‘ho ho ho’.

This kitchen is a perfect example of how items that seem so ‘wrong’ can be right in certain circumstances.

The thought of quilted chairs in a kitchen is enough to make us cringe. Despite this, in this creamy dreamy setup, they totally work! A glass table is a fantastic addition to the shiny gold and the statement printed rug and gold canvas pulls it all together perfectly.

Yes, it may be a little ‘Vegas’, but we love it!
