Everywhere you look it appears that gold is making a come back. This isn't the the solid gold of the 80's. The new gold is used in a sparing way. In high design you will often see it paired with white. In bathrooms and kitchens lightening and hardware have started to take on a golden hue. Not Vegas gold. This is an antiqued soft patina of gold. When used sparingly, it has a beautiful effect.

Tying in gold throughout adds warmth to a white kitchen. The bold lighting sets the style for the space and the hardware follows suit. The detail on the hood shows how nicely the gold and silver finishes can play together. You don't have to do just stainless, or all gold when adding it in to your style.

Koehler took high design style to to another level with this bold black and gold bathroom. Like gold jewelry with a black dress the gold bathroom fixtures pop. Mixing it all up with tribal wall print makes the gold step to the forefront.

The gorgeous gold vein in the white veining running through the marble plays beautifully with the gold tone hardware.  Paired with the light gray cabinetry, the gold stands out as a stunner. 

Even if it is just a touch, gold can add serious interest to the simplest of spaces.  A small space like a bathroom is a great place to give it a try.
