What Colors Go Well with Gold in a Bedroom

Using gold in your bedroom means knowing what complementing colors to use and which accessories and pieces of furniture can add value to the bedroom. From golden fabrics to metallic furnishing, using reflective hues in your bedroom is all about the drama and elegance it brings.

If you don’t want plain gold as your wall paint or wallpaper, try mixing and matching it with other colors like purple, yellow, coral, peach, or black. It can be daunting at first. To start with, here are some color palettes compatible with the hue.

Pink/Rose and Gold

Gold complements different shades of pink, from pale blush to dusty rose. Rose-gold is one of the best shades to represent class and elegance.

Combine pink-and-gold with cool pastel colors and neutral colors, depending on how you want your bedroom apartment to reflect and what ambiance you want to enjoy.

If you want to highlight the pink tone more, pair it with saturated colors like black or navy blue. The pink style radiates a warm accent that balances the dark colors.

Gold Lighting

You can also add gilded accents by focusing on the lighting. The golden hue can provide extra warmth to the room. Add a golden candle or table lamp. The installation of these accessories can also add to the room’s charm and class.

A chandelier is one of the most popular lighting accessories that screams elegance. Installing a chandelier alone can add sophistication to a bedroom. How much more if this is made of gilt?
