Black & Gold

When it comes to making a powerful statement, black and gold are the dynamic duo! If you’re looking to create luxurious space and you’ve never considered using this dramatic palette, take a look a look at what this high-contrast combination can do for a room.

This kitchen below from Lonny and the living room by Nate Berkus are incredibly sophisticated. In both examples, I love how the black and gold pairings are able to pop off of a neutral background for impact and balance. 

If you’re not ready to bring the black and gold effect into a larger room, a powder room is the perfect place to impress your guests by having fun with color. The gold sink below is stunning, and both spaces have gorgeous wallpaper that brings a wonderful richness to the room.

Another option is to let gold and black accessories make the statement. Place eye-catching gold lamps against a black wall or get inspired by a patterned chair. 

I’ve used black and gold in combination with a variety of color palettes in my design and love the effect. One bedroom I did in rich blues and greens became more dramatic when I framed the combination with touches of black and gold. Another room with a more muted palette gave me the perfect background to direct the eye to special pieces like this black and gold bedside table and gold sham.
