Go back to the future with timeless gold

Add glamour to your home with accents of trendsetting gold.

Whether gold makes you think of luxurious palaces or Hollywood glamour, there’s no doubt about it: 21st century design is experiencing a serious gold rush.

When used in the home, gold adds sophistication and a sense of prestige, while the muted yellow undertones create a warming, cosy feel. Gold naturally highlights any surrounding colours, which makes it easy to use in existing colour schemes. Layer matte tones of copper and white-gold to add richness and depth to a large room. Alternatively, take inspiration from today’s architects and work vibrant metallic accessory pieces into neutral spaces to create a sleek, contemporary look. For a modern feel, combine rich panels of yellowy gold with crisp white and soft lime, or mix ruby and deep violet with bleached golds for an unexpected twist on a traditional colour scheme.
