Ohhh BLACK & GOLD… (Part 1)

Black and Gold together is just yummy. A dear friend of mine a few years back brought me a beautiful birthday present (presents) and the underlining theme was of course black and gold. From a luxurious diptyque candle, to a gorgeous pair of Kate Spade oversized black rhinestone earrings encased in gold, the gift dazzled… After being beyond surprised and thankful for these lovely gifts, my good friend pointed out that black and gold paired together always reminded her of me and that she thinks it is one of my signature styles…! So here’s to Black + Gold in many lovely shapes and forms…enjoy!

Kelly Wearstler is a true master at pairing black & gold, and never ceases to evoke a Wow factor adding these colors into her projects. Whether it be by using shiny metallic hardware, statement furniture pcs, gilding or high-gloss paints, she nails this color pairing. You can see many examples of Kelly’s ingenious use of black & gold in one of my all time favorite coffee table books, HUE, by Kelly Wearstler.

I could easily see a pair used as bedside tables, as a luxurious storage solution in a master bath, or having a few stacked together lining a wall in a living room.
