Unless you're been living under a rock, you've probably noticed the resurgence of all things GOLD in the interior design scene. I'm a huge fan of the flashy metallic, and strongly believe anyone could inject a bit o' gold into their space - regardless of style!
Mixing metallics in a room should be embraced, not feared! I find in a room where every single finish matches perfectly - the design falls flat, and you can't quite place your finger on why. I strongly subscribe to the notion that matchy-matchy is NOT the answer. For example, a room could be so chic with a polished nickel chandelier, dark matte black door hardware, and a gold side table between 2 reading chairs. Obviously nothing matches - but just WORKS.
If you are a bit trepidatious about injecting gold into your life, a side table is a perfect place to start. Being a piece smaller in scale, a gold side table can be treated as more of a sculptural "art" piece in the room. There are great side table designs for every type of taste, so check out my favorites below!
I'd love to hear your thoughts on the GOLD rush - are you a fan? Do you think this trend is one to stay? Let me know in the comments below!
