We love a good interior designs trend! Especially when it comes to new season it’s always nice to have a scout about at the latest trends to see if something catches your eye that might give your room the little oomph it needs.

We’ve been doing our research into the very latest 2018 design trend predictions and instead of compiling this into 1 post we thought we’d pull out one of our favourite trends; contemporary gold. We’ve seen a lot of interior designers predict that gold will become the firm favourite for the season ahead taking over from our love of all things copper back in 2017. 

We thought this trend might be the perfect way to inspire you for the year ahead as it’s such a staple colour. More often than not you already have gold accents throughout your home therefore it may just be a case of reworking these accessories to give your home a fresh new look.

Take a look at our mood board below for inspiration on the contemporary gold trend.

Gold mood board

Colour Palette

The beauty of gold and brass is that they’re both timeless colours meaning they have incredible staying power. If you feature these colours in your home they can work well with almost any interior trend that comes and goes whilst still looking fabulous! Gold finishes have been around for many years with shiny, high polished designs trending a few years ago. This year we’re focusing on muted and even matte gold finishes to create a chic, contemporary look. Gold can also add a sophisticated elegance to bold decors whilch would work exceptionally well with Pantones colour of the year; Ultra Violet.

Decorating Tips

When it comes to decorating with these colours small, subtle accessories is key! You can incorporate muted gold into every single room in your home, even the kitchen; why not opt for some matte gold cutlery or even a kettle. Mirrors (of course) are another great way to introduce this trend into your home. An intricate or uniquely designed mirror with a muted gold frame would look stunning on a plain painted wall for the ultimate minimalist feel. Feature a mirror in your entrance hallway or dining room above a console table to create a charming centre piece.

Lighting is another excellent way to incorporate this trend whether it be a floor lamp, table lamp or a new pendant light fixture the styling options are endless. Vintage desk style lamps are set to be huge for 2018 and are a great way to inject style and structure to your room. Table lamps are great for creating an eye catching feature when 2 are placed together on a storage chest, console table or sideboard.

Keeping up with new season trends doesn’t have to cost you a fortune! We’ve selected some of our favourite pieces below depending on your style and budget.
