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.

Alternatively, gold tapware is perfect for a Scandinavian minimalist style bathroom. The combination of subway tiles, gold tapware and marble gives our inner-minimalist literal heart eyes.

2. Statement Gold Pendant & Pillow Covers

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’.

4. Princess Dresser

Every woman has an inner-Disney Princess waiting to come out and this regal dresser allows her to indulge in her childhood dreams.

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!

Inside Kendall Jenner’s House: A $36Million Mansion

Today we step inside Kendall Jenner’s house and it’s oh so lavish…

Whether she’s strutting her stuff on the catwalk, or causing a stir on ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kendall Jenner has proved herself to be one of the most influential figures of the 2010s.

At just 21 years old, the second-youngest Kardashian sister is worth an estimated $36million. With that kind of bank account, Kendall has a lifestyle and wardrobe that most of us could only dream of.

But what about her house?

Well… it used to belong to Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, it’s worth 6.5million and it has a 24 hour valet.

Let’s take a look at this little slice of Californian heaven…

Kendall Jenner’s house isn’t shy of the spotlight. Before Jenner purchased in 2016, the sleek pad belonged to actress Emily Blunt and her beau John Krasinski.

Located in West Hollywood, the home is pretty much what haunts us in our sleep at night. Modern furnishings, a rooftop deck and trend architecture are just some of the things that undoubetly tempted Kendall into forking out that six million!

The home reportedly has six bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. It has three floors and towers 4,800 square feet high.

In true Kardashian style, Kylie Jenner’s house is decked out with state of the art appliances, including a massage room, an Italian-style kitchen and a gigantic walk in closet.

Dear Kendall, please may we have permission to raid your closet?

If this isn’t #kitchengoals, we don’t know what is! Clean white cupboards, wooden floors and a center breakfast bar make this sleek and modern.

We wonder if Kendall actually cooks any of her own meals here?

Decorating Small Bedrooms: Dos & Don’ts

When it comes to decorating small bedrooms, one step in the wrong direction can make a room feel cluttered or claustrophobic.

Small bedrooms are about making the most and enhancing the space that you have.

So how exactly do you do that?

Like this! Here’s our ultimate guide to decorating small bedrooms and what to avoid…

Do: Hide Your Storage

under-bed-storage

(Photo Source: hative.com)

It’s an inevitable fact that bedrooms always need storage space. However, when it comes to decorating small bedrooms, it’s important that storage doesn’t clutter the room.

Rather than invest in specific storage furniture, opt for hidden storage options, such as under-bed storage, or built in wardrobes.

Opt for bed frames with built in drawers for something streamlined, or go for cute, woven baskets for a country cottage effect. Hanging printed table runners around the perimeter of your bed is a great way to hide your storage area and adds detail to your decor too.

Don’t: Go Overboard On Furniture

Clunky wardrobes and double bed-side tables will make you feel like you are Harry Potter living in that cupboard under the stairs!

Keep pretty furniture pieces for your larger rooms.

Do: Create An Illusion With Mirrors

(Photo Source: architecturaldesign.com)

Mirrors reflect the space that you have and make it look larger. Using mirrors is a fantastic way to maximize your space.

Rather than going for free standing mirrors, opt for mirrored wall hangs.

Don’t: Hang Mirrors Below Eye Level

Floor mirrors or mirrors hanging below eye level will make your room look short and stumpy. To create an illusion of both height and width, hang mirrors at eye level.

Don’t: Use Harsh Lighting

Harsh, or overly yellow lighting tend to make small bedrooms look a little sickly.

Do: Go For Pops Of Interesting Lighting

25-small-bedroom-designs-and-ideas-homebnc
(Photo Source: homebnc.com)

Rather than having one large source of light, small bedrooms look better with multiple smaller lighting sources.

The bedroom above is a prime example. Bedside lamps and a statement pendant with two lights keep it looking symmetrical, without entering overpowering territory.

Do: Pops Of Color On The Bed
small-bedroom-bed-pillow-covers

(Photo Source: domino.com)

In many small bedrooms, the bed becomes the center of the room. A fantastic way to make a small bedroom look bigger is to decorate in a predominately neutral palette, then add pops of color to the bed.

These pops of color will draw the eyes inwards, creating the illusion of a larger space.

Recreate the stunning look above with a mix of coral, navy and white pillow covers.

Don’t: Colored Walls

Nothing will make you feel more boxed in than brightly colored walls.

If you really want to add colorful details to the walls, opt for artworks and canvases and hang them at eye level.

Do: Hang Curtains High & Mighty

(Photo Source: hgtv.com)

Home decor boffins at HGTV recommend opting for a curtain rod slightly wider than your window and hanging your curtains as close to the ceiling as possible.

This creates an optical illusion of height and makes your room appear larger.

Do: Add Shelves & Storage Above The Bed

Small shelves or furniture fittings above the bed are a great way to inject extra storage space.

Make sure you opt for small fittings and place them either at the head at the bed or towards foot. Otherwise, the bed itself could begin to feel boxed in.

Is your entire home full of small rooms? Here’s how to make a small room look bigger.
