These two colors are basically the embodiment of luxury and sophistication. Whether you like loud and vibrant colors, you won’t be able to resist the appeal of these colors. Though a bit intimidating, these colors are so versatile that it is really hard to go wrong with them, so get ready to add glamour and finesse with these black and gold interior decor ideas.
A Black and Gold Color Palette?
Black is often associated with power, strength, and elegance. It is the absence of color which makes it an ideal shade/hue to work with. On the other hand, Gold is the color of extravagance, wealth, riches, and excess. It shares several attributes with the color yellow. The color gold is also a warm color that can be either bright and cheerful or somber and traditional. These two colors used alongside create a timeless and elegant palette. If you love simplicity and richness, the combination of black and gold is something to consider.
Black and Gold Interior Decor Ideas
Now for the exciting part, here are some quick and easy black and gold interior decor ideas for your home:
Transform Your Walls
If you are the go big or go home type of person, then start with your walls. Paint your walls matte black with gold details or black wallpaper. You can use it as an accent wall to your living room (don’t worry, you don’t have to paint all your walls black), or your bedroom. However, if it’s too intimidating for you, you can start with walls with black and gold details.
Are you willing to splurge? How about an upgrade of your white or beige kitchen countertops to black? They look elegant and, like we said, very timeless. Alternatively, you can also paint your cabinets black or buy a black accent piece – maybe your dining table, or a hanging light. Don’t forget to add gold details.
Add mystery and sexiness to your bathroom by opting for black tiles. You can also decorate your bathroom with black accessories – a black vase, black towels, or mirrors with black borders. Aside from that, you can sprinkle the gold with the use of little pieces, maybe a gold faucet for your sink or your bathtub, a golden chandelier, or soap dispensers.
The first (and easiest) thing you can do with your bedroom to adopt the black/gold motif is by changing your bedding. Get a black sheet and white pillowcases with gold linings. Because these colors are so easy to combine with other colors or accessories, you have tons of things you can do with your space – get a black lamp with a gold base or a painting with a gold accent color.
If there’s one room black and gold interior is really perfect for, it has to be your beauty room. Gold looks fabulous, while black/white balances everything out. It also looks classy and is relatively easy to decorate.
