What could be more glamorous than adorning your home with a splash of gold? The shimmering metallic colour has made a resurgence, not only in decorative objects, but in large-scale furnishings and wallpapers. Plus, with its sunny character, a golden chair, desk or scattering of cutlery will make rooms feel infinitely warmer.
Add a hint of glamour to your home office with understated gold seen on the desk and chair. Silk curtains and muted colours on the walls complete the look.
This striking green wallpaper is a great starting point for an Oriental scheme. The golden mirror and hanging lights add to the look, while also enhancing the glamorous feel.
Go back to black
Limiting the palette in this living room to gold, black and white unites the scheme and keeps it simple and chic. Using bold oversized accessories, such as candlesticks, will add drama to the room.
Pull up a seat ...
Accents of gold on the chairs and tableware creates an elegant dining area. Choose a pale backdrop for a calm and welcoming feel, while the stripy table linen adds a relaxed touch.
Understated yet elegant, a table laid with beautifully patterned crockery and golden cutlery will add some glamour to any dinner party - perfect for the upcoming festive season.
Luxurious and shimmering gold bed linen is teamed with deep blue tones and polished wood to create an inviting bedroom feel.
Take a dip
A free-standing golden bath imparts instant luxury when set against the weathered walls.
