COLOUR OF THE MONTH
Go for gold, and let this metallic hue be a conversation starter in your home.
Gold accents have never been hotter in the worlds of fashion and interior design. Look around and you will likely pick up hints of the shade in various incarnations, ranging from the rich honey hue to rose, copper and even bronze versions. In this instance (right), however, the metallic colour is used not as an accent, but as an impressive conversation starter in the room’s decor. While interior stylists would advise to hold back on the shine previously, the trend is heading towards going all out and making a flashy statement. Contrast the look with pieces of wooden furniture in a dark varnish. Look to styles influenced by the Orient for an added touch of Old World glamour.
Keep to bold lines and forms throughout the space for a modern touch, such as opting for Hermes’ Bleus d’Ailleurs dinnerware collection.
