Morning guys. How are you all? It’s lovely to be back here today. We had a great weekend. My husband and I recently bought our first house and yesterday I made the first purchase. A chandelier! But today I want to ask your opinion on something else. Where do you stand in the good old metal debate- silver or gold? Which one do you prefer?
According to some of the leading trend authorities here in South-Africa, the sun is setting for silver and gold is on the rise. I am seeing gold everywhere lately. In accessories, furniture, trim and objet.
Silver has had a bit of a short run. The last two years have been all things silver, but now we are returning to the warmer metal. Gold doesn’t have to be uber shiny and gaudy. A more understated look is now the order of the day.
Gold van be used i classical, contemporary or modern designs. It’s all about the combination. Here bright purple give a fun zing. Or you can pair it with white, as seen below, for a classy, understated look.
What about this spin on the muted palette? Add flowers in a bright colour to add a burst of life to this look. It’s not quite as bold as the purple scheme, but it has that special something.
What do you think? Silver or gold? I must admit that I am loving these gold accessories and coffee tables. I would love to have something similar in my lounge.
Have a lovely Monday,
