{colour inspiration: gold}



. . . always in love with all things gold, and after covering a cocktail table in gold-leaf in early spring, even more drawn to its elegant shimmer, especially as gilded accents on walls and along ceilings, and on luxuriously beautiful carved sofas . . .

Bumpkin on a Swing [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

I love the gold sofa, what a fabulous accent piece. The gold on the walls, much to royal for a Bumpkin. My friends would attempt to medicate me should this occur in my home. I could just hear them now.
That Bumpkin has went a bought her some gold lame' paint and has gone hog wild in the den.
I found you through the fabulous Laura at B B & B. It's a pleasure to meet you. I send you much sunshine from the shores of The Mississippi Gulf Coast. I am really not so much a bumpkin other than geographically, but I hope I shared a giggle with you.

The colour gold is beautiful in accessories but easily overdone in anything big, but it looks quite good in the first photo :) xxx

I agree--I especially love gold as an accent on pillows-and of course, a lovely gilded mirror is always glamorous! Have a great weekend, Barbara

I've been thinking about gold leafing the inside of a lampshade - the light reflecting of the gold will be beautiful.

I have been told,
I'm getting old,
so I'll just be bold,
and go for the gold!

I have been loving how much gold is making avery strong come back in both interior design and fashion! The sofa is to die for.

That is so true. For years, I packed away my aged gold treasures...an old, old candelabra, little mirror and other such trinkets, but within the last year, I have brought all of them out again -- with a renewed appreciation. As you have so perfectly shown in the first image, gold looks splendid with both ornate and clean, modern surfaces.

I love these images, Roséline + again, a warm congratulations on your feature. I have been enjoying your posts very much! Keep up the appreciation and pursuit of all that is truly lovely and glamorous :)

xo,
Sarah
