Golden Accents Are In- Light Up Your Home With This Trend

Although shimmering metallic accents made a splash in the interior design world this past winter, the trend is also set to reign supreme for Summer 2016. If your home is crying out for a dazzling finish, try adorning your space with gleaming gold décor. From your bedroom to the kitchen, here’s how to transform the simplest room into a golden-tinted oasis.

Decorate your black and white bedroom with a sleek gold vase: For a contrasting effect, use black and white abstract printed wallpaper to offset the look of shining gold. Meanwhile, neutral bedding and coordinating patterned pillows help to bring your décor statement to the next level. Use an ornamental gold vase, golden wall lighting fixture and white flowers to complete your space.

Turn to a gilded gold coffee table for an elegant touch: Meanwhile, a slim and modern gold coffee table can bring a hint of sophistication to your living room. Try contrasting the gilded table against a grey and white patterned area rug, white sofa and funky leopard print accent cushions. If you’re entertaining friends, this funky decorating look just may bring the aesthetic of your favourite lounge to mind- without leaving the comfort of home!

Use gold hardware to illuminate a neutral kitchen: For anyone who isn’t ready for overwhelming wall-to-wall gold décor, take a baby step into the trend. Decorate a simple kitchen with shining gold hardware on the faucets and cabinets. The look of dark grey-painted cabinetry, white marble countertops and dark hardwood floors helps to showcase the metallic touches, and bring your kitchen to life.
