Heart of gold: decor ideas for a brilliant home
If 2015 was the year of copper, 2016 will be the golden age. The precious metal of jewels and luxurious objects has become one of the trendiest colors in interior design, capable, if properly dosed, to lighten and warm up a space and add a sophisticated and elegant touch. The result can be more or less rich depending on your tastes and choices, but the final effect will always be brilliant, because the reflective surfaces bounce light around a room and allow each golden object to be unique. Such as Wave stool by Haymann, made of blown glass and cork.
It only takes a few details to give a luxurious twist to the living room: like the brushed brass frame of IC lighting collection by Michael Anastassiades for Flos, inspired by the skills of a juggler who balances crystal balls.
Or the essential yet spectacular frame of Cheyenne mirror by Eichholtz, an ideal solution if you want to add a brilliant touch to the living , the hallway or the bedroom.
Golden accents should be paired with warm, natural tones, such as dark brown. Ren series, designed by Neri&Hu for Poltrona Frau, is entirely made of brass, solid walnut wood and Saddle Leather.
Even Benson coffee table, signed by Rodolfo Dordoni for Minotti in 2014, joins a golden finish with darker wood tones, matching two shiny surfaces.
Haumea by Massimo Castagna for Gallotti&Radice combines some noble materials such as extra light tempered glass and wood with metal parts in bright brass.
If you are looking for a more impressive and vaguely '70s result, then go for Monocles sideboard by Delightfull: inspired by James Bond movies, it is made in solid walnut wood and brass and its design stands out for the beautiful engraved circles.
Iconic Bocca sofa by Gufram was really designed in the 70s and is now available in a precious golden finish: 50 limited edition pieces to celebrate the brand's first 50 years of activity.
