All Things Gold!

New Year's Eve is a time for celebration, and what better way to ring in the new year than by adding a touch of glamour to your home? Gold is a timeless colour that can add instant luxury to any space. Here are a few tips on how to incorporate golden hints into your New Year's decor:

• Start with small touches
You don't have to go overboard to make a statement. A few gold ornaments on the table, a gold vase filled with fresh flowers, or a gold throw blanket on the couch can add just the right amount of sparkle.

• Get creative with lighting
Candlelight is always flattering, and gold candlesticks will definitely add a touch of magic to your New Year's Eve tablescape. You can also string fairy lights around your doorway or banister for a touch of whimsy.

• Don't forget the details
Even the smallest details can make a big impact. Gold doorknobs, drawer pulls, or picture frames can add a touch of sophistication to any room. Here are some specific ideas for adding golden hints in your New Year's decor:

• Create a festive entryway
Hang a gold wreath on your door and place a gold bowl filled with ornaments on a console table.

• Create a magical bedroom by adding warm fairy lights to the headboard.

• Think about texture
Gold can be paired with a variety of textures, such as velvet, fur, or glass, to create a truly opulent look. For a more modern take, try mixing gold with metallics like silver or copper.
