Black & Gold: In Still Life

Because I've been loving the color combination of black and gold, the subdued takes on this palette in each image below is what first caught my eye. While the colors drew me in, it was each collection's glimpse into something I love-- history, interiors, cities-- that drew me back for second glances.

Black & Gold: At Home

I have been completely enamored with the combination of black and gold for quite a while (see here). While it's a palette that could easily veer toward gaudy, especially when used in interiors, it also can be classic and traditional, a bit rock n' roll, whimsical or even just simply done.

Although I'd love to see a room with these colors as the predominant scheme, there are plenty of ways to incorporate this combination into your home on a smaller scale.

If this palette strikes your fancy too, know there is more black and gold ahead!
