Golden Glow

Did you watch the Golden Globes? I think this year was one of the best in recent memory. Tina + Amy as hosts. Jodie Foster's touching acceptance speech. Hugh beating out Bradley....and Les Miserables having a BIG night! As well as Argo! Go Ben!!

Well, all those golden statues got me thinking about my love of gold in decor. I think a touch of gold, whether in a mirror, a little objet on a stack of books, or a pair of poufs at the end of a bed....add just a splash of sparkle that can awaken a space.
If you have a space that needs a little more oomph....try a touch of gold. It might just bring things to life.

Are you into heavy metals? The decorative kind.

Still catching up on the recorded version and love your golden touch. It seems like sparkle was the trend in the dresses - did you see Nicole Kidman's dress adorned with bees?

We watched a little of the Golden Globes but kept going back to Downton Abbey! I have always been partial to gold and am so glad it's making it's comeback in decor! It really never left….we just focused on other things I guess but I sure do love it! Hope your week is off to a great start!

I want me a gold pouf. And that desk lamp is killer. Gold + white is always right. Love the inspiration. Come visit sometime. Would love your thoughts.

I love using pops og gold too. Adds a touch of elegance to a room.
I am so happy Les Miserables won too, and Ben was a great choice. Interested to see what happens at the Oscars.
Happy Tuesday.

Agreed! Have some gold here and There as i always feel that things would be too ordinary without it. Touch of gold brass in our chandeliers style Maria Theresia or our dinin table borgese .... Never had it occurred to me to get such lamp shades... Love them! Hugs z
