Make A Statement
When working with gold materials you have the opportunity to create great interest because gold has such a big impact.

Whether it’s gold wallpaper, a side table or a gold covered pillow you should make sure that it perks up the room.

Mix Metallics
To truly bring out the beauty of gold in your home’s decor you should try mixing it with other metallics like bronze, rose and champagne gold. Mixing metallics has become increasingly popular because it adds layers of dimensions to a room. When mixing metallics you should also mix up the finishes. Combine matte, glossy and brushed metallic pieces to create a versatile yet harmonious look.

Gold and Natural Materials
Pairing gold accessories with natural materials makes for a great balance. You can use organic touches like floral arrangements and wood materials to break up metallics. Mixing these elements will prevent your gold decor scheme from being too overpowering.

Gold and Bold Colors
Gold is also appealing with paired with other bold colors like purple and blue. You can use various tints of colors like yellow, purple and green. Using such variations softens the theme and adds a sense of depth to the overall design. If you want to further tone down the look incorporate more neutral tones.

Use In Moderation
As glitzy as the gold look you should avoid incorporating too many gold pieces in one space. Doing so will have the opposite effect and will be overwhelming. The sparkly specks in gold materials naturally catch the eye. So you don’t need to use several gold accents to make a statement.
