{Colour Inspiration: Gold}

Often associated only with the holiday season, gold is actually a fantastic colour for adding opulence to interior spaces at anytime of the year. The vintage mirror (1) shows how to add drama to a hallway or bedroom (plus it's got that rustic French look to it that I simply adore). Over sized mirrors lent against a wall instead of mounted on it, always give an air of style and glamour; gold effortlessly adds to this look.

I'm loving how the gold pendant light (2) mirrors the bulbous wine glasses on the table. All it needs now is a good bottle of red to complete the look...! If you're looking to add a dose of instant luxury then add a few pieces of gold-coloured glassware (4) to your tabletop and your next dinner party will be fit for a king!

  10. i love so mutch the antique gold framed mirrors...

  11. The gold antique mirror is so lovely, massi, and would make such a stunning statement in a fairly simple scheme.

  12. Lovely turn of the century (1880's - 1900's) Louis Phillipe style French gilded mirror. The ones with the original gilding that is exceptionally distressed and show the original rougerie/red underlay have a real beauty. Quite often the wood frames have simple decorative carving with the gilding overlaid and can be really beautiful.
    Love the blog - some great sourcing ideas.

  13. Thank god I found this blog! I've been searching for one that features Elle Decoration. Your other post are great as well.

    I've been in a gold & silver leaf phase lately. I have seen the Louis Phillipe french mirror (image 1) on ebay and they go pretty high, $2,000+!

    Looking forward to checking out the rest of your blog.
