World's Largest Selection of Decorative Switch Plates

Go for gold with your decor

Gold is goodGold is good

Gold is the color of the first place prize for a reason. This color has long been tied to an inimitable value and shine ever since the material was first discovered. You can use the color gold to give your home a truly recognizable gleam that will dazzle your friends and family alike with these tips.

Not just about the money
It's clear that gold is associated with money and power, yet it still has the ability to be more artistic than anything else. Everything from ancient cathedrals to masterpiece paintings have used gold leaf to bring out an immutable glow in certain works. Try using a wallpaper with inlaid gold leaf to bring some extra shine to your home, or, if you like to do it yourself, you could even try painting your own gold accents. For a remarkable room, consider having a mural done by hand on the wall - this style may be harder to come by, but that makes it all the more special.

You'll want to match your gold walls, and no color matches gold better than gold itself. Try using a gold mirror, picture frame or switch plate to match the tones of your wall. You can also do just the opposite and use gold accessories to accentuate other parts of the room, noted Shelterness.

Use gold to bring out other colors
If you have a room that's dark brown or even black, gold can be the perfect choice to break up that lack of color. A bright gold accessory can bring new light into your home that needs it, so be sure to implement this color wherever the energy is lacking. This can be as easy as hanging a new item on the wall, or even a collection of them that all share this exciting color. A group of similar switch plates can become their own motif that you can echo throughout the house.

Go with fabrics to underscore the tone
HGTV noted that gold looks great on walls and is equally divine when used for fabrics. Nothing has the same appeal as hanging gold curtains. These will look marvelous in any room, especially a dining area with genuine wood furniture and chairs. With a gold tassel added in, you can truly create a palace in your home.
