As you will quickly learn about me, I am a BIG fan of lists. List-making is a skill I think I’m pretty awesome at. In addition to helping me keep my life and family in order, lists give me a sense of accomplishment as I tick off the items one by one. A fully executed list is pure gold in my eyes.
Speaking of gold… Just as in fashion, gold is making a huge comeback in home decor. Stay with me folks! I’m not talking about that painful, bright, brassy gold of the early 90’s. This is a more muted, toned-down and glamorous gold that instantly brightens up a space and provides great contrast to existing decor, not to mention a beautiful glow to most complexions! As a side note- how chic and soothing is a white and gold space?
So here is where my list comes into play… may I present my Top 5 Gold Decor additions to any modern space:
1) The light fixture
A little bit retro, a little bit modern, all fabulous!
2) The conversation piece
Nothing like a little faux taxidermy to break the ice at the next dinner party!
3) The pouf
Useful for a color accent and as additional seating in small spaces
4) The side table
A side or occasional table is an easy way to add a little somethin’-somethin’ to a neutral/basic color palette. The right small table(s) can complete a space and tie together unique pieces throughout the room.
5) The detail
A little box, a small trinket, a book… The details in a room truly make it your own and are a direct representation of your personality and interests. Make the details count!
