Using Colors to Create Mood in a Room: Gold

Looking to add some extra brilliance to a room? You may want to add hues of gold. The color gold represents success, triumph, generosity, abundance, luxury and elegance. On a more intellectual level, it also represents wisdom, high ideals and enlightenment. It adds a sense of warmth to any room. As you can see, it’s a very psychologically positive color overall.

Decorating with gold requires forbearance, however. Too much gold and you end up with the gaudy opulence of the Trump Tower. It’s a wonderful accent color that goes well as a singe piece of furniture, a supporting element in a fabric pattern or as accent pieces like throws, artwork or pillows. It looks wonderful as an accent in neutral color schemes to add a bit of radiance, pairs well with other metallic hues, adds a nice bit of contrast against wood textures and looks great with deep, muted colors like a subtle lavender, as in the photo above. The key is to see gold as a support color.

If you’d like to incorporate this color into a room, below are some ideas from the new sale items featuring gold as part of the pattern, or you can find all gold selections here.
