subtle with gold

When many people think of gold in the home they think bright and formal but softer golds are perfect for even the most casual of spaces and add such a lovely warmth. Whether from a frame...

or even on the ceiling!

By the way I saw the above room in person and the ceiling was just beautiful! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

A ceiling painted gold? That is unusual. It doesn't look too bright in the pic so I guess it's ok. I like the living room, spacious and full of light!

Love that ceiling!! I am putting gold touches in our master bedroom. It has been tough but looking great so far!

I love the mirror frame! And I love soft gold or silver in a neutral room. It's so elegant, and, you're right, it doesn't have to be formal.

The mirror is to die for, but then I saw the ceiling. I'll take one of each.

oh wow --- love BOTH of these, but that gold ceiling is stunning (and genius!) i've been trying to figure out what color to paint the ceiling in my bedroom... while i don't think a true metallic gold would work, this is totally inspiring me!
