Gold + Interior Design

Proxy Design was never a big fan of using gold in interior design – it always seemed to come across as pretentious and outdated… Well, until recently, that is! The use of gold in homes has evolved in a classy, sophisticated manner that is much more attainable for the everyday homeowner. The key to using it in your home is recognizing that there is a delicate balance: using too much can be overwhelming and flashy, while using too little can go unnoticed.

Now, adding gold to your interior decorating does not have to mean big, expensive purchases to change your current decor & furnishings. You can start by adding small accents and complimentary pieces with detail. With that being said, let’s explore how you can start integrating this beautiful color into your home!

Living Room

When it comes to living rooms, you naturally think of comfort (probably), but that doesn’t mean you can’t have luxury and glitz as well! Your living room is a great place for accents – think side tables, decorative pillows, frames, and curtains!


Here at Proxy Design, we like to think of kitchens as the heart of the home – where family’s and friends gather for food, drinks and conversation. Some ways to incorporate gold into your kitchen are adding light fixtures, cabinet hardware, and accessories! You can even bring it into your kitchen backsplash with grout or tile selection!


The bathroom is another great place to integrate gold into your home! Think shelving, mirrors, waste bins, and fixtures/hardware.


Ahh the bedroom – where we start and end our days! It is a place of comfort, but also of luxury! You can incorporate gold into your bedroom with bedspreads & decorative pillows, light fixtures/pendants, mirrors, and more!

So, as we said – there’s no need to break the bank when it comes to gold! These are just SOME examples of inexpensive yet creative ways to incorporate gold into your interior decorating and spice things up!
