Every year, a new metal surface becomes a part of the newest crop of trends that emerge at the start of the cycle. In 2017, it was brushed copper with matt or gloss accents, but this year, it’s going to be all about gold. From lighting to textures to metal surfaces, you’re going to see a resurgence in gold accents in the interior design industry. So without further ado, let’s take a look at 5 interiors that prove gold is back like a king this year!
1. Screen walls
Screen walls can either be made of CNC laser cut materials or they can be forged out of mild steel. Either way, their intricate patterning is the best way to introduce a minimal amount of gold accents in your interior designs. You can either trim the edges of the pattern or use a light smattering of the gold trimming within the pattern. Just don’t go overboard, or it can come off as tacky.
2. Cove lights
You can introduce gold accents in your interior design with the help of cove lights. They’re usually hidden in narrow coves that are designed within the furniture. So when the lights are switched on, you see nothing but a dim, incandescent glow that looks absolutely stunning given the right context of the surrounding spaces.
3. Under-cabinet lights
If simple and sweet is just the way you roll, then you’ll appreciate the use of under-cabinet lights to enhance the gold accents in your interior designs. The soft, glow that makes up the surroundings looks positively gorgeous, and it can definitely pack an impact even if the surrounding spaces have been finished in unrelated colors.
If a major part of your interior design color scheme includes a completely different color setting, then you’ll appreciate the use of a gold-themed backdrop. It doesn’t have to a literal, shimmery golden hue – you can simply use a dull, matt version of this color to get your point across.
You can use gold trimming in the fixtures and furnishings. It can be subtle but add unique touches to the ambiance at the same time. This can make your entire space seem attractive and classy at the same time.
