When you’re going for gold (finishes that is) nothing shines quite as bright as a gold-tone. Gold accents can be the spark that takes spaces from fine to fabulous. Anything but traditional, gold is a staple of almost every décor style. So, no matter what your home looks like, you can add a pop of shine.
Gold Finishes by Style
The main feature of Art Deco style is gold, so you can’t go wrong when choosing this color for an Art Deco space. Brushed natural brass is the perfect toned-back tint to use as an accessory accent. Pair gold finishes with black for a glam glow.
For a more Industrial look, pair brushed gold or brass with black or white. Or, to get even more of a factory charm, try a warm gold with polished nickel in a dining room or living space.
This style is where bright, champagne-colored gold really shines. It’s perfect for chandeliers or sconces, or in more subtle spots such as table legs or bathroom fixtures. Use it as a focal piece while pairing with natural brass accents for a thoroughly mod style.
