As the weather cools down, it’s time to think about all the fun fall festivities you can throw at your home. As you’re deciding what holidays to throw parties for and how you should decorate for them, it may the perfect time to consider adding beautiful gold accents to your home to make your decor pop.
One of the biggest trends we’ve seen this autumn is incorporating glittering gold accents and accessories into home designs. But, even though gold accents are a huge trend now, people have been obsessed with the gorgeous metal for centuries. Gold is a timeless metal and can integrate into any sort of home or design scheme with ease.
Fall is the time to gather together in a loved one’s home, and gold fits right in with that theme, mainly because of its unique way it can warm up a room. And when you translate the color gold into a textile, you get a vibrant yellow that can help tie a room together.
When thinking of all the parties and gatherings that can occur during this time, from Halloween to Thanksgiving, we wanted to find ways for people to add beautiful gold accents into their homes that can add to the festivities and provide a perfectly elegant fall touch.
Ways to Incorporate Gold Accents into Fall Festivities
Gold, whether it’s metallic or fabric, is the perfect addition to any fall party. To prove it, we’ve pulled four of our favorite golden items for you to view below.
A Cozy Golden Couch to Curl Up On
If you’re planning on throwing a party at your home, chances are that it’s eventually going to migrate into the living room where everyone can get cozy, talk to one another, and have fun. One great way to integrate a gold accent into this scenario is to go right to your living room’s focal point of the room – your couch. We know that many people think to shy away from brightly colored furniture, but we believe that this warm pop of color is perfect for any design aesthetic. And when a vibrant color is paired with soft cushions, the result is a match made in heaven.
A Gold-Studded Coffee Table to Tie Your Room Together
Another living room feature that can boast metallic beauty is your coffee table. Coffee tables are beautiful, but during parties, they are a practical place to gather around. So, while people are getting comfortable on your couch, they can take advantage of your coffee table as well. We love coffee tables that have gold accents on its top, legs, or both. It creates an elegant focus in the room that people naturally gravitate to.
A Statement Mirror to That Will Turn Heads
Mirrors can make even the smallest of rooms look big and bright. That unique feature will absolutely come in handy if you are throwing a house party for 50 of your closest friends this fall. Your mirror will be an extension of your wall decor, so make a statement with a gorgeous golden one. We recommend putting this particular gold accent in an area that will get a lot of traffic so you and your guests can always make a sometimes needed zhoosh during a particularly fun gathering.
A Rug with Gold Accents to Brighten a Room
One of the best ways to tie a room together is a perfectly-sized rug. Rugs are great for brightening up dark spaces or acting as a makeshift room divider, which can be essential during a party. And while an entirely golden rug might be a little too harsh, especially for a smaller space, one with splashes of gold running throughout can really turn a room into something extraordinary.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! Check out some of our other picks that are sure to dazzle. After you find all the areas in your home where you can integrate beautiful gold accents and accessories, you’ll be well on your way to throwing the best (and trendiest!) party of the season.
