Good as Gold: 3 Gold Accents You Need!

We’re loving the metallic trend right now, and gold has really become the star of it. Really, nothing says “luxe” quite like a little bit of gold here and there. A few pretty gold accents can really complete a space, just as a pair of gold hoop earrings can complete any great outfit! 

Love all things golden? Then check out our top picks for working this lustrous metallic into your home.

Pendant Lights

A pendant light with a golden finish can be incredibly versatile. On one hand, a sleek and simple form, perhaps with a glass shade and gold ceiling plate, can be the perfect complement for a minimalist aesthetic. On the other, a more ornate and intricate design can exude grandeur and bring opulence to any room.

The current metallics trend is all about subtlety. It’s about adding the glamour of gold (and other metallic tones) to your existing space with a few cleverly placed accents. Cushions offer one of the easiest ways to do this. Just give us a few scatter cushions with a gold foil print spread across a beautiful sofa, and consider us happy!

A solid piece of golden furniture can look over the top at the best of times. But a side table with a slender golden frame, paired with a mirrored surface or white marble? That’s perfection. Such a side table will look just as beautiful in an art deco space as it will in a boho luxe space!
