There is no denying it: gold has made a comeback. This luxurious metallic has been around in design for ages. It has a classic appeal that never goes completely out of style, but it has gone in and out as a design trend. You have probably noticed it has been popping up a lot more lately because of the popularity of metallic finishes. Gold has a very glamorous appeal. It can easily verge on tacky if not used correctly, but when it is done in a tasteful manner it can bring a lot of chic style to a space. Here are 10 rooms that got it right when decorating with gold accents.
Decorating with Gold Accents
1 A few pops of gold on the chairs and the desk lamps are enough to dress up this casual, modern space with some easy glamour.
2 The gold frames on the gallery wall suit the black and white art and fall right into place with the other accents in the room.
3 The grasscloth wallpaper on the accent wall has a gold sheen, giving the natural texture a glamorous edge.

4 This master suite has a great balance between masculine and feminine tastes. The dark, rich colors and textures are softened by the gold frames and creamy accents.
5 Gold looks crisp and feminine when paired with white, especially when white is the dominant color in the space.
6 Soft blues and neutrals are given depth by the addition of some gold accents. The mirror creates a nice focal point, balanced by the lamps that flank it on either side and the coffee table in the middle.
7 How chic do these blue stripes look when paired with some gold accents? It takes the nautical to a place of glamour.
8 In this dining room, gold dominates in varying shades to create depth and softness. I love the satin gold stripes on the walls and the slightly deeper shade on the ceiling to mimic the table.
9 It doesn’t get much more luxe than black and gold. The latter really makes the fireplace pop against the dark wall.
10This kitchen would have been beautiful with just the blue and white, but the gold adds some extra character that bumps it up a notch and makes it unique.
