Gravitating Towards Gold

For the first time this year, we sat outside last night with our little boy and watched the lightning bugs (that's fireflies to folks south of Tallahassee and north of the MDL) lighting up our backyard.  You know you are obsessed with interior design when watching bugs makes you think about color palettes.

Maybe it's a combination of changing styles and getting older, but I find myself consistently choosing gold over silver- in fashion, in jewelry, and in decorating.  Generally speaking, I would choose a gold gilt light fixture over polished nickel any day of the week.  Gold is warm and inviting and always adds a touch of glamour.

In thinking about spring and summertime table settings, I love the look of gold flatware.  It looks so gorgeous paired with bright and cheerful spring and summertime colors.

Gold flatware works well with the warm and cozy hues of autumn, as well.

I can't think of anything more appropriate for a celebratory New Years Eve dinner than gold flatware (other than champagne, of course).

Your post is so timely! As I was opening this, I was pondering whether I should reconsider my choice of brass hardware for my kitchen renovation.

I've loved brass and gold for some time now. You're so right about the warmth it adds to a room. I guess I'm a bit obsessed about it at this point lol.
