When I talk about the gold trend there are some that may feel a slight jolt from the 1980’s. As designers we don’t see it that way and I want you to see and feel the sophistication and glamour it could bring to your home. Unlike the 80’s, today’s gold trend is more about style and less about the “bling”. I have to admit, I have a reinvigorated love affair with a touch of gold. When used correctly the gold trend can be quite flexible and endearing. It can be used as a stunning focal point, such as a coffee table, chandelier or piece of artwork. When incorporated into your accessories the richness in tones can enhance the simplicity of a space. It’s my job to incorporate this trend into a clients home in a timeless way. In a way that will hold its value and remain engaging for seasons to come.
I believe what a multi layered statement necklace does for a simple white dress, a gold piece of furniture or accessory will do for your home. It will provide style, evoke a feeling and respond to you on a personal level. When it comes to gold decor look for pieces with personality. If the pieces could talk what would you want them to say? Keep them interesting, light and fun. Allow them to add shine to your space, wake up a neutral backdrop or even compliment brights. I do believe they should come with a little warning sign that reads, “Please Distribute Carefully In Your Home.” There is an art to striking the right balance and gold furniture in access can awaken your senses in a way that is not ascetically pleasing. The trick is to mix them with softer textures to balance them out. Here are a few ways Beasley & Henley Interior Design has incorporated the ever so appealing “gold” trend into our clients homes:
Here we added gold to this gorgeous home in Naples Florida. We’ve incorporated this timeless trend with a brushed gold cocktail table, side table, foyer light fixture and wall accessory.
A cocktail table and wall sconces were chosen to add a little glamour to this home.
A polished chandelier was incorporated into this guest suite to add a touch of interest to the space.
We chose gold mosaic tiles to embrace the refined look of the bar in this luxurious home. The gold compliments the marble top beautifully.
Here are a few of our favorite home decor pieces from Inside Avenue Home Decor:
I am loving the gold accented legs of these bar stools, console table and chandeliers from Lexington Home.
