If you wait long enough, everything comes back in style!  Some people are still a little afraid to make a move to ditch silver and really dive into bringing gold glittering into their home.  But now, everywhere you look gold hues are so prominent, it’s becoming more and more difficult to ignore. Gold fixtures are the latest trend in luxury bathrooms, kitchens and living spaces, but with a modern twist. No longer are we stuck with the boring, old polished brass! The jewels of today now sparkle with their own descriptive names such as Champagne, Brushed Gold, and Satin Bronze, which are ushering in a new “Golden Age” in home decor.

Some of the best ways to include these elements into your home decor are through drawer or cabinet knobs, sink fixtures, lighting, lamps, mirror frames, furniture legs, vases and so much more!  We love adding these golden touches because this color is not only beautiful, but it brings warmth and a level of richness to a room that doesn’t feel like it’s over the top, while at the same time giving a glam element to a space that warms it up and makes a statement!

Here are our favorite places to add gold touches to your home… In the kitchen, the quickest and easiest way to add gold touches are replacing tired knobs and handles with new fab fixtures!

Or, add statement lighting!

Finally, if you are ready to take the full plunge into the glimmering golden pond, how about switching your sink?

Another classic room to start the switch is the bathroom, here are some of our faves!

Last stop, is your main living area… we suggest pairing gold with gray, which seems counter-intuitive but we think you’ll love the results.

We also love adding gold with BOLD.  Try pairing gold frames, pillows or even furniture with wildly bold painted rooms such as this one…

Lastly, when you know you are fully ready to commit, transform your living space with gold accented wallpaper and lots of little touches dancing around the room.

We hope you have enjoyed the tour of our favorite gold studded homes.  Which has been your favorite?  Do you think you will try this trend?  And if so, will you dip your toe in carefully or take the golden plunge?
