To enhance gold interior paint colours with accessories, consider the overall atmosphere you’d like to create in the living room. For example, a little sparkle goes a long way towards a glamorous look, so add a decorative mirror or wall hanging with a metallic frame that twinkles in the light. Copper lamps, vases and ornaments highlight gold, while pops of black, red or purple add a sense of drama and energy.
If you’d rather stick to a cream and gold living room where the focus is on cream walls and furnishings, look for eclectic gold accessories. Scatter a variety of gold cushions on the sofa, hang a gold-framed mirror over a fireplace and choose a contemporary chandelier or pendant lights in gold. Ornate frames, lampshades and ornaments in antique gold or brass create a vintage look, while bright yellow-gold accessories add reflective light and glamour.
Alternatively, could your stools, cupboards, window recesses or bookshelves do with a lick of gold paint? To try out your bold gold ideas, order some tester pots online to see what your colour choices will look like with the available light in your living room. Then, put them to good use on old furniture or feature accents to start your journey towards gaining the Midas touch in your home.
