Digging Gold

Except for a brief moment in high school and college when I tried to be like everyone else, I’ve always preferred — no, loved — gold. Yet I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been told by designers and sales clerks alike that using gold is the kiss of death. Apparently, it’ll make your home look “dated.”

But guess what. In the past year or so gold has made a gigantic comeback. I’m seeing it everywhere. Fashion. Jewelry. Paper goods. And yes, even in the home.

So, like I emphasize in my book, don’t listen to all those naysayers who tell you to follow the trends. If you do, you’ll miss out on the things you truly love and ironically, end up with a home that’ll be dated in a year or two anyways.

Trends come and go. What you love is timeless.

I hope you enjoy the waterfall of gilded goodness below.
