Of Gold & Warmth



I hope you have had both a wonderful and eventful weekend, friends! Though considered quite traditional, gold takes quite a twist as of late and can easily work into both modern and traditional decor, beautifully. With fantastic little details, or statement pieces, you can add a bit of gold glam to your space. Previously, I've always considered myself a silver person, but am turning a new leaf, and treasuring the odd gold or slightly copper pieces. (even with silver) Are you a gold person?

I just couldn't resist the image above–perhaps it's the modern cabinet or the fact that when you open it up, you are surprised with the striped and herringbone gold interior. It's quite pretty, don't you think?










Also, that simple stick tree is so chic, and perhaps a great alternative to traditional faux trees. I'm loving the asymmetrical wreath display above the mantle, too, and the lights hung from the ceiling, near the bed...the look is so romantic and soft. What are your favorite features?

  1. Wow, these are wonderful. I am more of a gold person. And these wonderful decor depict it even further.

    I like the stairways, its grand and luxurious. Now these make me feel that gold comes along with romance as well. It's a great feeling i get here.

    And i thought so too that the asymmetrical wreath display above the mantle looks great and something perhaps unexpected?

  9. I used to be a silver-only kind of gal, but lately I've been drawn to gold! I love how it effortlessly warms up a room while upping the luxe factor. The black, gold, and silver/white bedroom is beautiful!
