Tips & Tricks Thursday – Black and Gold Revisited

It never fails.

Every year I kind of “rediscover” how awesome the combination of black and gold really is.  I first blogged about it here (…which feels like forever ago, but in reality was only last year.  Hey, “what’s old is new” right?)

This year I’m loving some of the unexpected places to find this cool combo.  You don’t have to commit to an entire room makeover, just add a few simple pieces to update your space.

Here are some of my favorites:

Serving Pieces

I am in love with this flatware from DVF Home.

Candles

I know these are “technically” a DIY for Halloween themed decor, but wouldn’t they be lovely in some pristine, modern candlesticks?

Lamps

This one’s fairly straightforward.  I’ve even got a DIY version for my own home.  For a more modern look, opt for a base with a simple shape and clean lines.

Throw Pillows

A quick and easy way to add a bit of Black and Gold charm to any space.  Loving this heart pillow, too!

  1. Love your selection of pieces in black and gold. Haven’t really thought about this combo in a long time but after seeing it here I might think of using the two together. At first glance, it took me back to my childhood which is a while back and can still see my mother’s lamp and serving tray in this partnership color. Thanks for sharing and memories.
