{two lovely things: gold + geometric}

Always drawn to gold in interiors, especially in geometric patterns such as this beautiful wood and metal shelf {above} and hand-forged gueridon table with gold gilding {below}, perfectly matched with a swing-arm sconce and brass shade . . .

I don't wear gold... silver for me. But I enjoy gold in decorating...

You have so gotten me onto a gold kick lately, and I love it! I could really use some gold accents in our front room, which is turning out to be somewhat safari-esque.

I love gold and the colors in that room with the pink art are gorgeous! Isn't it funny how things are coming back. I can remember that kind of gold shelving in my parents and grandparents home as a kid :)

This is so beautiful..but I'm wondering if someone like me could pull it off. Everywhere in my house is hardwood floor and I've never seen gold furniture anywhere but on carpet. Do you think it would blend in and look...cheap if it was on hardwood? Is there any way I could get around that?

It's lovely to see something in gold tones for a change. I love silver but think a mix is much more interesting. At least I hope so as I have both. great etegere.

That book case is just gorgeous! This post is beautiful. I've been drawn to gilded accents for some time now - my bedroom is done is creamy neutrals with gold.

Beautiful bookcase. It feels both solid and airy at the same time; minimal, but slightly more.... glamorous. Perfect.

That second pic is one of the loveliest I've seen in awhile--never seen it before, and don't know how I could have missed it, Domino fan that I am! The combination of the graphic gold with the embroidered pinks and purples of the bedroom is SUBLIME!

Hope you have a lovely week with plans for a fabulous weekend :) xo!

Ugh!..These remind me of the beautiful old brass-bamboo, twin-set of shelves just like these, that I let the estate sell out from under me.

The women you claimed them made an extreme score, and I know she has been enjoying them well.
