This is the reason why it is important to know how to properly integrate gold into the design of your room to add to its value.
Mix Gold With Other Decoration Styles
When we talk about gold, it screams extravagance and baroque style. One thing you can do is to combine this with other styles, like contemporary and modern styles. Gold is not just all about baroque and it works together with other styles as well.
Another way to use the color gold in your bedroom is by using gold fabrics and pieces of furniture. If you don’t want to surround yourself with gold paint, you can just choose to accent your bedroom through fabrics and pieces of furniture instead.
As an example, this bedroom uses gold as an accent through pieces of furniture and fabric. The gold color is embedded in the room’s curtains, pillows, bedsheets, and rug. The accent also looks good together with wood used all over the room.
You can also accent your bedroom with gold through lighting. The gold hue can provide extra warmth to the room. And this comes in the form of a golden candle or a golden table lamp. The installation of these accessories can also add to the room’s charm and class.
One of the most popular gold lighting accessories that scream elegance is a chandelier. Installing a chandelier alone can add class to a bedroom, much more a golden chandelier.

In choosing which wallpaper to use, make sure that it matches other elements of your bedroom. This includes your pieces of furniture and curtains. The colors should also match each other.
