. . . always in love with all things gold, and after covering a cocktail table in gold-leaf in early spring, even more drawn to its elegant shimmer, especially as gilded accents on walls and along ceilings, and on luxuriously beautiful carved sofas . . .

  • I love the gold sofa, what a fabulous accent piece. The gold on the walls, much to royal for a Bumpkin. My friends would attempt to medicate me should this occur in my home. I could just hear them now.
    That Bumpkin has went a bought her some gold lame’ paint and has gone hog wild in the den.
    I found you through the fabulous Laura at B B & B. It’s a pleasure to meet you. I send you much sunshine from the shores of The Mississippi Gulf Coast. I am really not so much a bumpkin other than geographically, but I hope I shared a giggle with you.

  • The colour gold is beautiful in accessories but easily overdone in anything big, but it looks quite good in the first photo :) xxx

  • My favorite color! It can turn anything into something glamorous!x

  • I agree–I especially love gold as an accent on pillows-and of course, a lovely gilded mirror is always glamorous! Have a great weekend, Barbara

  • I’ve been thinking about gold leafing the inside of a lampshade – the light reflecting of the gold will be beautiful.

  • Oh man, after that second picture I’m definitely craving a good red and gold ensemble…

  • There is nothing more beautiful than Gold! The first image is stunning!

  • I have been told,
    I’m getting old,
    so I’ll just be bold,
    and go for the gold!

  • I have been loving how much gold is making avery strong come back in both interior design and fashion! The sofa is to die for.

  • That is so true. For years, I packed away my aged gold treasures…an old, old candelabra, little mirror and other such trinkets, but within the last year, I have brought all of them out again — with a renewed appreciation. As you have so perfectly shown in the first image, gold looks splendid with both ornate and clean, modern surfaces.

    I love these images, Roséline + again, a warm congratulations on your feature. I have been enjoying your posts very much! Keep up the appreciation and pursuit of all that is truly lovely and glamorous :)

    xo,
    Sarah

  • Oh Yeah….this is the combination of the gods! Anita
