Gold rush

I have a confession. I've been cheating on silver. Since receiving my first proper piece of jewellery in my teens (the obligatory Tiffany heart bracelet, of course), silver has been my precious metal of choice. Although these days, mixing metals is far from a fashion faux pas, I've often found gold a little bit brassy and blingy, and have stuck loyally to silver.

Our fashion and interior choices often go hand in hand, and when decorating my apartment, I naturally thought I'd turn to silver for a metallic accent. But lately, my eye's been drawn to gleaming gold, currently having a moment in the interiors world. It's a little more grown-up than silver, throughly modern and can instantly add a touch of luxe to the even the most humble of spaces.

If these accessories were silver, the overall look might be a tad old-fashioned, but in gold, 
the industrial lamp and retro phone bring plenty of contemporary cool.

Feeling uninspired at work? Gold accents are sure to spark creativity.

A sleek pendant and a couple of candlesticks make this plain white dining space shine. The feel is understated and minimal, yet warm and inviting, too.

Who knew that lustrous gold and blush pink was such a winning combination? These pots have hit first place on my wish list.
