Using gold in your home is the ultimate Midas touch. Rich, warm and timeless, it’s the perfect colour to add to a living or dining room to create a refined feeling, or use it as a highlight to create a sense of elegance in your bedroom and bathroom. Gold adds instant uplift to neutral layouts, especially natural timber. It also looks wonderful with grey (both light-coloured and dark), silvery-blue, dusty pink and lilac or, for a more exciting look, try blending it with bolder colours such as chocolate or deep purple.
If you’re using gold in a small space or in a room with little natural light, use sparingly, as too much of this shimmering shade can quickly become overpowering. The key is to keep it simple and delicate and, in terms of texture, think gentle gloss rather than brilliant shine.
