Picking gold color planters are a lovely way to bring a touch of nature indoors while adding a pop of brightness to your room. The sparkle of the metallic gold acts as an interesting contrast to the green foliage of the plants.

 

 

You can have a standalone planter, or arrange 3-4 in a row for more elaborate decor. If you can’t make time to maintain real plants, go for planters with flowers/plants made from realistic, allergy-free plastic.

Gold Decor For Your Home – What To Keep In Mind

 

 

When using a bright color like gold to accent your home’s overall beauty, it is important to remember that less is more. Being such a rich and lustrous shade, it is easy for one to go overboard. After all, such is the attraction of gold.

 

 

However, it is a good idea to use this lovely color wisely – the gold color looks fabulous when contrasted with pastels, or deep shades like blue and deep green. So, if you have a navy blue couch, place a sleek gold lamp beside it.

 

 

The rich yellow shade works beautifully as a contrast to both subtle (pastels) and deep colors (deep blue, forest green).

 

 

But remember, when it comes to rich colors, it’s important to use them smartly so as to not overload your senses. The beauty of a gold decor piece truly comes out when it is placed in a more neutral environment.

 

 

Remember, it’s the little touches that make all the difference!

 

 

To conclude, gold is not only a symbol of prosperity and joy, but it’s a fabulous color for home decor accents too.

 

 

Be it the classic gold color or the more subtle rose gold, both these shades look great on accent decor pieces such as planters, bowls, lamps and more.

 

 

So go ahead, and infuse these little splashes of gold to your space. We promise it will brighten up your space, day after day!
