Let’s Add Glitz and Gold to Your Home Interior
Gold accents are a hot trend right now and we dare say that this classy trend may be here to stay. Luckily, there are some easy, fun and surprisingly inexpensive steps you can take to add gold to your home interior.
Here we will show you how to add year-round touches of glamour, gilt and gold to your home without it looking tacky or overdone.
A chandelier is the best place to start infusing your home with shine. We recommend that you choose an elegant chandelier that adds a bit of whimsy to your room. For instance, choose one that is not heavy on the metal, but has more glass, with a touch of gold on the arms. This will give your dining room, living room or bedroom a more elegant feeling. Yes, chandeliers are not only just for dinging rooms anymore, consider adding one to an unexpected room for added glamour.
Gold Furnishings, Fabrics & Paints
Gold furniture is hot right now! Look through any current decorating magazine and you are certain to see elegant rooms that have hints of gold and glitz placed strategically throughout the room.
How can you pull off this look without making your home look tacky? Try swapping out your curtains, linens, area rugs, pillows and other fabrics throughout your home with ones that have hints/accents of gold colors. Or switch one neutral colored wall to an accent wall of glimmering gold paint. If a wall seems to daring, then consider painting an accent piece such as a coffee table in gold paint.
If this seems to be too much gold for your taste, consider adding a few throw pillows that have specks or swirls of glittery gold trim running throughout. Big or small your home deserves some glamour!
Take It To The Table
Any table in your home can be glamorized by adding a simple gold runner that is perfect all year long. Paired with the perfect center piece, this becomes an understated way to make a gold statement in your home. Even something as simple as some gold decorative balls place in a gold-rimmed bowl or golden tray can add the perfect hint of glitz to your home.
The great thing about gold as an accent color is that it can be paired with practically anything. Add a single gold sash to the top of your curtains for a glamorous touch. If you’re looking for something a little more bold, try putting gold sheer curtains directly over the top of the curtains you already hung and give them a stylish new dimension.
If you’re not into changing up the curtains, you might consider just changing up the curtain hooks. Generally easy to remove and change out, adding a pair of gold, glittery curtain hooks can give you that sophisticated touch you’re looking for without requiring a full curtain make over.
Framed In Fashion
One of the most simple gold accents to add to any wall or table in your home is a picture frame. Simply replace frames you have with intricate gold borders and watch your walls take on a new and glamorous life.
If you like the frames you have, but want to make them glitzy, consider using gold leaf. You simply brush on the gold leaf using specific glue, and then viola – you have amazing gold frames in the style you already love. Plus, your home immediately looks more expensive and elegant.
Light Up Your Style
Lamps are a great place to start when looking for easy ways to add gold to your home’s interior lighting.Pairing a neutral lampshade with a gold base can give any corner of your home a brilliant new style! Lampshades can also add some sparkle to you home.
Try finding a basic black lampshade that has a gold lining on the inside of the shade, the light reflects of this golden interior and truly lights up your room with a wonderful, golden glow. In addition, similar to the picture frames, you can spray your current lamp bases gold, which will reduce your expenses while still making your home go from drab to fab.
When it comes to adding gold and glitz, the power of the overall effect is in the placement. Don’t over do it, just trust that purposefully placed accent pieces throughout the house will deliver the sleek and subtle glamour your home deserves all year long.
