Sold On Gold

Gold is the colour of the gods. It has the power to transform the mundane into the extraordinary. Within interior design, gold makes a powerful statement and can elevate your design into something exceptionally beautiful. Here are Marcia’s top finds to help you bring this royal tone into your own home. 

No matter the space you’re in, gold brings a sense of grandeur and elegance to a room, as evident in this sophisticated office environment. Simple pops of gold in furniture and accessories create a ‘wow’ moment – and can change the entire look and feel of the space.

Gold is timeless and can work in just about any design scheme. You can mix it into your existing space and create a truly eclectic look or use it as jewellery to dress up a dull or hardworking space. Add a distinct gold-framed mirror (1) to create impact in your abode. This SHF Sunburst Mirror showcases detailed hand-finishing and evokes the vibrancy of the sun. You can also add this glamourous hue as an accent tone with a stunning SHF candle holder (3), a punched metal hurricane (6) by Mr P Home, or a beautiful Globo Table Light (2) by Jonathan Adler that oozes style in a combination of gold and crystal-like finishes.

Choosing the right gold accessory is like selecting a precious gift to be adorned. Use it as a subtle design element and bring gold into your home with this Aldus Potplant Large Copper Stand (4) by Rialheim, or a decorative Statue Parrot in a white gold dip (5) by La Grange Interiors.

We also love the classic all-gold design of this fun Pineapple Holder (7) by Rialheim and the decorative styling of this Vintage Trim Oval Mirror Tray by MR P Home. You can also splash out in gold in the dining room and kitchen with this exquisite Gold Cutlery Set (10) from Woolworths and the Eve Two-Tiered Tray (8) by Jonathan Adler.

Both will surely impress your guests. Whether to decorate or entertain; to add zest for life or to dress up a plain design, we are sold on gold this season! And now you can shop the look from some of the country’s finest suppliers of luxury furniture and accessories. But remember, you saw it here first!
