COLOUR OF THE MONTH

Home & Decor (Malaysia) - - CONTENTS -

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.
