6 Easy Ways to Add Gold to Your Home


Gold is a fantastic color to add to your house décor. Here are some ways to add it into your modern home.

1. Accent pieces – Vases, frames, candle holder

If you are looking to start small, a nice gold accented vase, candle holder, or frame can add a pop of warm metallic goodness to your home.

This vase is from Anthropologie.

2. Hardware

To add just a bit of color to any room, change out the old hardware on your cabinets, drawers, or desk.

These pulls and knobs are from Restoration Hardware (shhh these are technically burnished brass, but we won’t tell).

3. Light Fixture

Add a subtle hint of gold by replacing your old lighting fixtures with something modern and fun in a warm golden color.

These shimmer pendant lights are from CB2.

4. Wall Decor 

If you are looking for way to add a bit of shine to your walls you could add wallpaper or art transfers.


These Better Than Paint permanent art transfer feathers go right on the wall and are from Paper Riot Co.

5. Bookcase or Bar Cart

Looking for a bigger commitment? Invest in a piece of conversational gold furniture. A bookcase, bar cart, or side table could add that gold that is missing in your home décor.

This mirrored, gold bar cart can be found at West Elm.

6. Drinkware

If all of this gold is too much gold, you can always have some fun drinkware that you pull out on occasion!

These stemless champagne flutes can be found at World Market.


Gold is a fantastic accent color and adding a little goes a long way. If you don’t think we added enough gold, check out these gold cabinets.



Have fun adding more metallic to your life and don’t be a stranger!
