Golds, copper, brass and bronze are eye-catching finishes in nearly any décor scheme, which is no doubt one of the many reasons why gold tones are trending in 2016, but how do we integrate this into our look without overdoing it?
Of course, that’s assuming you don’t want to overdo it, because going “solid gold” is certainly an option. But, let’s say your tastes are a bit more conservative, and you’re just looking for a splash of glitter. Here are a few tips for mixing these tones into your decor:
Gold-toned frames are a fun way to add a little bling without going overboard. Ornate gold frames are great for framing classic canvases, while thin rose-gold frames can make mod pieces pop.
And, don’t forget your tabletop frames. Smaller frames are a subtle way to bring these colors into your palette by peppering them around the house.
Furniture casters, lighting finishes and throw pillows are just a few vehicles you can use to drive more gold-toned color into your space. Décor comes in many, many gold-hued flavors.
You can also add these accents yourself with a little DIY handiwork. Pick a golden paint you like or some brass tacks and try a bold furniture upgrade.
Flecks of gold can bring rugs, window treatments, upholstery and linens to life in a much softer way than in other materials. It can also pop, but there’s plenty of bandwidth in the color spectrum for textiles.
And, don’t forget about the leather. Gold tones, especially rose gold and copper, are easily achieved in leather’s range of shades.
