One Word: Gold

I am a little dumbfounded that I have yet to do a “One Word” feature on gold and brass goodies. It’s absolutely my favorite go-to finish for accessories in our home, even though I’m well aware that it’s not everybody’s jam. Way back when, you wouldn’t catch me TOUCHING gold (I was a wee bit obsessed with silver), but now I can’t get enough. It’s so much warmer than silver, and is one of the few accessories I can add to a space that gives off sparkle AND color. Sure, there’s definitely a right and wrong way to use gold – But the projects and products linked to today are a-okay (and pretty darn fabulous) in my book.

    Liz Orzechowski - I recently painted some terracotta pots gold (the mini ones) and they looked really cool! Gave a nice warm fall look (they are part of a favor for a surprise bday party). I’m debating painter bigger ones. The color of the pots gives a nice under tone and mutes the gold some. I think I used just regular ceramics paint. Cheape way to get the look!ReplyCancel
