Interiors with Gold

This may shock some of you, but gold is back -- especially in interiors. Every furniture store and design magazine is featuring contemporary pieces and spaces that have a touch of the shiny metallic finish. It's easiest to incorporate gold in small doses such as light fixtures, end tables, and furniture accents (for example, chair legs and dresser knobs). Stick with pieces that have clean lines and simple shapes to keep this look fresh and updated.

{Midcentury Dressing Room}  "I had a little fun with that midcentury modern chair," designer Windsor Smith says of her Los Angeles home's dressing room. "I loved the frame and had it replated in matte gold, and reupholstered the seat in silvery leather." The armchair is vintage by Milo Baughman from the Windsor Smith Home Collection.
