I'm very much in my gold moment right now, so I can relate!

Sara said...

I totally agree - something about fall in general always draws me to the color. I'm still not sure how to incorporate it well into my house though.. Any advice on how to add gold to a very earthy, neutral pallet without it looking chintzy?

I love the warmth of gold, particularly against a stark white wall! Inspiring post!

I never liked gold growing up but it has totally grown on me and is almost my preference now.. I like mixing metals too. LOVE this!

Oh I love a little sparkle and glamour in my life that's why I love gold. And gold with black is my fave combination... love the last pic ♥

I am feeling gold and bronze... just designed hand hammered steel mirrors in golden bronze plating, love the finish.

Hi Sara! Try something like a small bowl, white, black or another neutral shade on the outside with gold inside! I've seen some great ones on etsy :)

Love the shelving unit in your first picture :-)

I've definitely been warming up to gold and brushed brass. I like them mixed with other metals, like brushed nickel.
