Metallics – Gold

Earlier this month we read a great blog post by Annabel Sheen for Mi Casa magazine, celebrating the work of Gustav Klimt and his impact on interiors. Amanda used some wonderful examples of his work – his art nouveau interiors in Europe– for example the friezes of the dining room in the Stoclet Palace in Brussels:

Amanda also illustrated his influence on contemporary interior design, one example the Gucci Café in Ginza, Japan by William Sofield with artist Nancy Lorenz:

And as the Christmas party season is once more upon us, around us things are starting to shine and twinkle, we have been falling back in love with GOLD!

A spot of gold in your ironmongery can really add elegance and perhaps a little art deco glamour to your joinery, as shown in these fabulous Amarii finishes:

More Art Deco inspired collections by Linton in their Metropolis range, with fabric and wallpaper designs celebrating the Jazz Age. See the gold of their stunning Lion Fabric (60% Viscose 31% Cotton 9% Polyester)


Alessi’s Gold Nativity story baubles are fantastic. We love these, and want them hanging on or Christmas tree:

Some examples of Gold in Clifton Schemes:

Reddington Road-0247

The huge gold feather adds a textured surface and reflects lights to add detail and interest to the clean lines of the dining table and chairs.

The gold accents used here act to pull this scheme together, and add warmth and a touch of luxe.

Peasburge Barn 016

They may be gold, but the gorgeous gold duck feet of the lamp bring things back down to earth.

The gold detailing (ceiling light, picture frames and notice even on the threshold strip), and it’s reflection in the mirrored ceiling draws the eye through the space, to rest on the illuminated frame in the drawing room.
