Bringing home gold isn't just for award season — eye-catching metallics can add brightness and a hint of glamour to a room all year long. If you're stumped on how to tastefully style gold decor, we can help! Our tip? Start small. Keep watching to see three gold accessories we're currently coveting!
Found in everything from fashion to decor, metallics are a current trend that no space should go without. If you're looking to add a small touch of glamour and shine, a few gold accents can give your room a hint of luxury. This Jayson Home Gloria Bolster Pillow will confirm anyone's obsession with anything and everything gold (especially during the holidays) — the handmade silk, ikat fabric, and knifed edges are enough to make any seating feel like a royal throne. But before you're convinced your space can't go without, consider the hefty $595 price tag. Although this silk accent would be an impressive detail, the price tag may require some serious thought.
Lately, I've been admiring light fixtures that use metallic lining to enhance their glow. I've seen several table lamps with gilded lining, but I love the idea of using this technique on pendant lights in a place where you can enjoy the lining the most, like the example below. Home enthusiasts Lee and Kevin Kleinhelter feature the look in their renovated office space. An undeniably talented couple – Lee owns the home decor boutique, Pieces, and Kevin has a custom construction and renovation firm – they created a stylish and gender-neutral space for working and meeting with clients.
The lights hang above a beautiful wooden table that serves as the focal point of their conference room. To try out this look in your own home, pick up a couple of IKEA Kulla Pendant Lamps and follow this gold leaf tutorial!
The world economy may be in peril, but gold's always a solid investment. While not all of us can afford to invest in the real deal, we can add a few gold or gold-themed accents to our homes. See some of my favorite finds!
