If you’re looking to turn your home from drab to fab, gold accents are what you need.
Gold, both the colour and the material, is something that never goes out of trend, which means it will work for your home interior all year long and not just for Easter.
But how do you channel some Great Gatsby vibes to your home without looking tacky or overdone?
One of the easiest ways to start is by using gold lights, and here are some ways to use them:
As statement pieces
If you’re feeling bold, choose a gorgeous gold chandelier or a whimsical pendant light that will immediately stand out in your living area or dining room. In fact, if you have a kitchen island, consider putting gold single pendant lights above it to give the area an immediate glamorous makeover.
As smaller design accents
You don’t always need to go big or go home – you can always start small! Floor lamps and table lamps are a great way to add gold to your space without feeling the need to over-commit. A gold table lamp on the entryway table can add an instant wow factor and impress guests as they walk through the door. You can also use a gold floor lamp to illuminate dull corners of your home.
To give a subtle touch of class
If you feel that bright and shiny gold is too much for you, go for a more understated look with brass or copper! Lights with an antique brass finish give a beautiful vintage feel to the room, allowing you to add some shine without being too flashy. Put them up along the corridors, or use them on the outside of your home, to give your gardens a pretty and timeless decorative piece. Brass wall lamps work perfectly in bathrooms as well, providing a cosy and romantic atmosphere as you wind down the day in a nice, hot bath.
