The immodesty of precious metals shows the audacity and the status of their owners. However, you shouldn’t overuse the golden color in the interior; the best proportion is one to three.
Gold shows its owner’s wealth in a good light. It is appropriate in such styles as modern, baroque, rococo, renaissance or empire. But it is used in details only: furniture legs, chandeliers, cornices, golden elements and so on. Golden patina is also often used.
You can combine the golden color with beige, white, peach or light gray. Among dark tints feel free to choose black, brown, terracotta, cherry, purple, pink, turquoise or blue. Even emerald green enframed by gold will look nobly.
If you choose the gray color, you can add lilac, pale pink or violet. A rare shade of an ashen rose with golden details and a white base looks awesome.
