On Trend: Grey and Gold

A delicate blend between our two favourite neutrals – black and white – grey is a fantastic alternative for both the bold and the subtle decorator. And while it has been a colour of choice for interiors for some time now, take note – grey and gold is the hottest combo yet.

A simple, understated colour such as grey, complemented by warm, opulent accents of gold, create an unexpectedly sophisticated and inviting interior.

The cultured and regal aesthetic of gold has proven to be timeless and enduring in its appeal. But this doesn’t mean gold in the home has to be overly ornamental – when used sparingly, the look is refined, contemporary and minimal against a palate of soft grey.

I love lighter grey hues on walls or a sofa contrasted against subtle gold décor such as a statement mirror, stylish vases or metallic detailing on scatter cushions.

Add a touch of gold to a grey interior with the Oly Jonathan Low Side Table, Coco Republic Candle, Oly Fiona Mirror and Elk Occasional Chair from Coco Republic.
