Gold Rush

Living Etc - - DESIGN / PROJECT -

The taste for ac­cent metallics has ma­tured into full-fledged con­fi­dence, with a wealth of glit­ter­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties com­ing to the fore. Some have clas­sic good looks – cue Gra­ham and Green’s Vel­letri chan­de­lier – while oth­ers are more about mak­ing a state­ment through bold prints, such as Har­lequin’s Seg­ments wall­pa­per. The de­tails shout louder, the look is more ex­u­ber­ant and yet the over­all ef­fect can still re­main re­fined and el­e­gant. Head-to-toe shine can be brash, so bold hits of bright blue are cham­pion in this scheme, bring­ing a look of ev­ery­day glamour to the din­ing space. Splashes of play­ful bright yel­low are un­ex­pected but ef­fec­tive too, par­tic­u­larly with Ligne Roset’s Ura mir­ror, which is seen used here as a tray on the din­ing ta­ble.

Project de­tails This is seg­ments wall­pa­per in heather/gold, £56 a roll, har­lequin. Gra­ham and Green’s Vel­letri chan­de­lier is £385.
