It would seem that the era when gold toilets and other devices were installed in houses to demonstrate a high social status is already gone. However, even now designers often turn to the idea of using gold, silver to organize a stylish interior. Moreover, the use of these metals in the design of living space has recently been very popular. But we are not talking about ingots of jewelry – we mean the imitation of silver and gold when decorating rooms.
For example, manufacturers of wallpaper produce decorative products with a pattern that shimmers beautifully in daylight or artificial light. If in addition to the walls, decorated with such a finish, place a few compact accessories with gold or silver spraying, the room will look very attractive. In addition, such a decoration of the room on a subconscious level evokes positive emotions.
Gold plated mirrors and paintings
Reflecting the adjacent space, mirrors visually enlarge the room. The living room, just at the right time, will be a large mirror in a gilded frame. However, there are cases when the stylistic solution does not allow the use of a large-size mirror. Then try to hang on the wall a picture in a frame covered with gold leaf. A work of art in a luxurious frame would look wonderful in a spacious room.
How to match gold and silver with other colors
The best background for gilded accessories would be a purple background. Are you not sure about this? Then imagine a piece of jewelry, earrings, ring, with sapphires in a purple hue. Specialists who make jewelry in gold assure that this combination of colors is a perfect combination.
In addition, gold and silver interior items look spectacular in the decoration of white and black tones. When equipping your home to make a choice between one of the precious metals is not necessary. You can try to combine gilding with silver. The main thing is to observe the correct proportions. The room should not lose its elegance, then it will just be fantastically beautiful and unique in style.
Furniture with gilding looks bright or discreetly expressive, but in any case it is impressive. The color of precious metal is often covered with elements of carving, which decorate products made of wood. Gilding is appropriate if the house is furnished with timeless classics – wooden furniture with carved facades or figured legs. Closets, secretaries, beds, tables, chairs, sofas, couches with gilded and silvered carvings are perceived as attributes of luxurious furnishings.
But we should remember that the apparent simplicity of the process of applying gilding or silver plating on furniture is deceptive. Do not take it on your own – the result may be of poor quality, the interior will be tasteless and cheap. It is more reasonable to buy ready-made furniture with a glittering finish, manufactured in the factory.
Gold and silver in the bathroom
The room for water procedures is a convenient place where you can experiment with imitations of colors of noble metals. As an option – to cover the walls of the bathroom with mosaics, some fragments of which are made in gold or silver tones. It is quite worthy to look small gilded details and parts of sanitary devices.
Anyone who wants to furnish his house exquisitely and uniquely, using the bewitching magic of gold and silver, you should always exercise a sense of proportion. To ensure that the house does not get pompous look and did not produce the impression of only a claim to grandeur, the colors of precious metals are introduced in a strictly dosed manner. To arrange the necessary accents in one room is enough to arrange one or two gilded or silvered things, taking into account the nature of the finish of the walls, floor and ceiling.
