6 interiors with the best golden accents
Gold is a matter of perspective – literally. If you think that using literal color arabesques and deco’s within an interior space is a good idea then think again. It is most definitely an overkill. However, that does not mean the subtle gold accents do not have that regal, expressive vibe that imbues richness and opulence within an interior. It can be done through lighting, accessorizing, choosing the right materials, or even a combination of all three. Below, we will be looking at some of the best gold accented interiors in our gallery.
- Take a good look
The majority of the gold accents within this interior come straight from the luminescent lighting fixture that might as well be a sidelined centerpiece. Combined with the subtle brown-gold accents used through strategically applied material laminates and ceiling lights emanating a soft golden glow, this interior is a seamless amalgamation of individual parts that make one ‘gold’ whole.
The most challenging part about going gold is incorporating just the right amount in the right intensity within the transitional spaces. Too much can seem overkill vibes, while too little might seem dull. In the image below, you’ll see how the neat use of off-white materials, dim gold lights and dark trimming manage to achieve that carefully curated golden look.
- Dull thee
While the majority of this interior has been done in dull tone instead of fair ones, the one common theme within all aspects is the aureate theme. Not only is the use of glossy sheen and organza innovative, it also enhances the flourish and impact of the interior.
- Bright colors and simplicity
The overall stylistic implications of this particular gold hued interior are quite zany. While the tropical candy color palate is quirky on its own, the light gold accent lighting, combined with the minimal oak wood floor laminates enhance the bright beauty of it all. While mostly simple, the clever amalgamation of all elements make for a resplendent ambiance.
- Classically insane
Most designers tend to take gold accents and trimmings hand in hand with the traditional styles, and the interior below is one such interpretation of a neo-classical articulation of gold and browns. The overall ambiance is enriched by the use of elaborate lighting and furniture fixtures to set off the figurative ‘ornate.’
- Incorporate the contemporary
While most contemporary interiors achieve that coveted gold vibe through lighting, this one uses a combination of clever wooden highlights, levels and reflective surfaces to set the bar higher. When all of these are topped off by the soft glow of the gold accented lamps, the interior takes on a rich, ostentatious look dappled in the subtlest of gold hues.
