As Good As Gold

This week’s trend is one of my favorites and was even named one of 2014’s wedding trends. The glamorously metallic color, GOLD! I must confess I am quite the gold lover and am beyond happy it is pretty much popping up across the design spectrum. From weddings, to signature home decor pieces, to dainty gold stacked jewelry it is perfect for any special event or everyday use. And it is perfect just in time for Spring! Gold and some soft pastel colors look so clean and fresh! That gleam of gold can add interest to just about any outfit or room. A little bit retro and a little bit futuristic, gold is the perfect accent color for almost any look you want to achieve; sleek-modern, boho-chic, even a little rock and roll! Mixing and matching with other metallic such as silver and copper (love!), dark bold colors, pretty spring pastels, and even just keep it simple with all white… you can’t really go wrong. Dress it up, dress it down… ah, the possibilities!

I am a sucker for gold because of its versatility, sheen, and texture! Using gold everyday can sound a little intimidating, but just remember, it’s the small details that count! A good, strong gold statement necklace with a simple white t-shirt and boyfriend jeans, mixed with some simple stacked gold rings and cool pair of heels and I am in heaven! Or funking up the dinning room table with some textured gold vases/ pots with some fresh flowers… it really can be those small accents that can lift a room.
