Giving it the Midas Touch

Want to give your home a little glam? Why not add a little gold? The latest trend in metal finishes is all things gold!

Yellow or rose gold – the choice is yours. Metal accents in the home have been on trend for a while now, it all started with bronze and rose gold and now yellow gold and brass are the in thing.  But fear not, if you’ve already bought into the rose gold trend you can always add in a little of the yellow gold that’s so hot right now.  Mixing your metals is also on trend. According to Pinterest searches for mixed metals has increased by a huge 423 per cent in popularity since last year.  So why not bling up your interiors with a few key pieces of gold or brass? Here we highlight how you can easily incorporate the gold trend into your home:


Bring a little glam to your kitchen by switching out the current handles for some gold.  It works well with wood grains, adds some life to greys and gives a striking contrast to black or keep it subtle against all white units.
