How To Style: Gold Leaf

For a truly opulent touch to your home, you’ll love the impact gold leafing has on furniture. Each piece has a lustrous shimmer that has been meticulously applied by expert craftsmen.

I share my favourite pieces for your ultimate interior refresh, showing you that any piece of gold leaf furniture fits effortlessly into any room its placed in.


Eloise Cabriolet Console

A classic hallway table with a twist, create a grand entrance with the Eloise Console. Its shapely silhouette and dramatic sabre legs draw the eyes in. The soft gold leaf finish is an exceptional design detail to add that extra touch of indulgence.

Incorporate interesting décor and home accents to complete the look for an expertly styled space.


 Miller Entertainment Unit

Your storage inspiration has arrived with the Miller Entertainment Unit. Beautiful, practical and worthy of showcasing. Made from poplar solids it features a playful recessed scatter design finished with hand-applied silver and gold leaf.

Select pieces similar in colour palette to create cohesion and flow in your living room. I love the look of gold accents seen on the drawer handles paired with creams, taupe and clean whites.


Forthside Chair

Made from a deluxe gold leaf frame, the Forthside Chair is upholstered in a neutral durable fabric providing understated glamour to any dining setting.

To build a sophisticated interior scheme start with a neutral base, from there you can start experimenting with layering textures and introducing colour. The Forthside Chair makes for a classic choice for a dining room chair, suited to relaxed comfortable family dinners whilst also impressing your dinner guests.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match, pair the Forthside Chair with the Trellis Silver Leaf Extension Dining Table to create a striking aesthetic.


Celine Gold Leaf Nightstand & Celine Upholstered American King Bed

Infuse Parisian style to your bedroom with the Celine Gold Leaf Nightstand and Celine Upholstered American King Bed. Paired together they create balance in the bedroom with matching cabriole-style legs.

The Celine Nightstand is made from birch solids, finished with delicate hand detailed gold leaf. The intricate details for this piece are complemented with a botanical drawer lining and custom hardware.

For a statement look, pair it with the Celine Upholstered American King Bed. The details on this piece include burnished gold-leaf timber accents, tailored cream upholstery and a classic silhouette. Styled together, they capture the beauty and grandeur of Parisian glamour for a look that’s timeless and luxurious.


Not sure where to start?

Often I find it can be helpful to begin with selecting art. You might think of art as the finishing touch rather than a starting point, however art has the ability to pull together a space with a welcoming effect. It also provides you with an instant focal point and colour palette.

The Prairie Wind and Black & White Geode Series by Natural Curiosities would make a wonderful addition to any room.
