Gold is Making a Huge Comeback – Trend Alert

Earlier this week, I posted a painted bench that was pink and gold.

Do you like gold?  I was totally against brass and gold a few years ago.  However, I’m seeing it more and more these days and it’s starting to grow on me!  What do you think about gold?

Silvers, pewters and even bronzes overtook the scene for a while, but gold is back big time.  It is acting as the new neutral.  Don’t fear mixing it with other metal finishes.

Let’s look at some examples of rooms with gold in them.

It can be overt or more subtle in a monochromatic scheme like below.

Are you ready to incorporate gold?  Have you already?

  1. I used to be adamantly against gold in any form, but I’ve come to embrace it a bit more lately! I’m even on the lookout for a brass bed for our guest bedroom!

  2. So I’ve determined that I’m loving the gold but I’m definitely not ok with BRASS and I think people fail to make the distinction. That’s where a little Rub n Buff Antique Gold comes in for all my brass stuff.

  3. I LOVE gold. I have found myself having a major aversion to silver/pewter/brushed nickel. Funny how our tastes change over time! Because a few years ago I would have DIED over having gold in my house lol.

  4. Not a fan of the gold, but used right…looks good in some spaces. I wouldn’t use it in my own however, i’m a silver/pewter girl :)

  5. I am loving gold right now and just like you, I wouldn’t have been caught dead with it in my home a few years ago. I hope this trend is here to stay a while. I can’t get enough of it.

  6. I am OBSESSED with all things gold and brass..love, love, love!

  7. I’m definitely having a hot & heavy love affair with gold lately!! Rub n Buff is my new BFF…

  8. yep.. i’m a yea in this category! love mixing the metals.. very interesting.

  9. Great post! I add a touch of gold in very room…..I am still not ready for a full on “room full of gold”…Maybe I am still trying to get the 90′s gold everywhere out of my mind!!!!

  10. I’ve been loving it too – I think gilt is more like it for me which you show in several pics here – a softer, more sophisticated version (I lived through the 80′s :))…now what to do with all of the great silver pieces I have???!

  11. i TOTALLY agree! 2 years ago i wouldn’t have even LOOKED at anything gold(or brass) but i’m starting to “like” it again also!!!!! crazy! we just changed out all of our brass doorknobs in our ENTIRE house…and now…i’m wondering if we should have left them! yikes! :)

  12. Gold was in in a major way in the late 80s, then it was sooooo OUT. Now it’s in again. Lucky for me I kept these frames from the original “in”

    as they cost me a small fortune many years ago. Anything silver used to be sooooo “out”. Now silver’s “in” too! I have a combination throughout my home – these days I use anything that I love.
