Decorating With Rose Gold

Metallic madness is becoming epidemic in the design world and rose gold is THE color metallic for this season. It rose to fame as a popular alloy used in jewelry design and now has entered the interior design arena. Rose gold is the perfect addition to the trend of mixing warm metallics.

Rose gold, also known as pink gold and red gold, was popular in Russia at the beginning of the nineteenth century Although the names are often used interchangeably, the difference between red, rose, and pink gold is the copper content, the higher the copper the redder the appearance. Subtler than traditional copper, rose gold  is a daintier version of classic gold and especially enhances feminine interiors. It plays particularly well with some of the softer neutrals, especially those that tend toward warmer tones such as a pinkish beige or a soft dove gray. However, when paired with chocolate brown and dark leather the  contrast will  prevent the rose gold from seeming too dainty.

 Since I don't believe rose gold will replace gold as a staple, it may be a trend that will pass quickly. It remains to be seen. For now it is a  a nice alternative to other metals and a fun way to mix things up a bit.I hope you will enjoy the images of home decor inspired by rose gold .

You may want to proceed with caution and use rose gold as an accent rather than as the lead color in a room. British designer Tom Dixon was one of the early starters, designing his Shade Globe Light in rose gold back in 2005.

The color of this lovely metal will give any room an updated look with a gorgeous glow. I have always referred to this color as blush. It is a rose but with gold undertones that takes away the pink and makes it even softer and more refined.

Rose gold with its warm color and soft glow can be especially feminine and desirable for wedding accents.

Rose gold goes beautifully with blush tones, deep burgundy, greens and plum. I like to use this color with touches of black to add an old world flavor and bring down the feminine levels.

However if you like, you can totally bask in the glow of rose gold.
