Friday Fresh Picks: 10 Ways the Gold Decor & Accessories Trend is the Best Ever

Friday Fresh Picks

I never used to like gold. In fact, I pretty much swore off the precious metal back in high school and refused to wear it. I became all about the silver, and in some ways I still am. BUT, in the past few years I started a love affair with metallics, and not just silver. It started with mixed metals (check out Twisted Silver!), and morphed into a preference for metallics at the holidays. As my tastes matured, and the rise of Instagram offered the perfect platform for getting inspired, I have come to see gold in a whole new light. As a color choice for decor and accessories, I actually prefer it to silver. I love me a good gold foil inspirational print or gold dotted pillow. Metallics have also been a big trend for children’s clothing this winter season and are here to stay well beyond the glitz and glamour of New Year’s. As I was collecting ideas, I quickly realized I might need 3 separate posts so I can dedicate a post for the grown-up Fancy Girl, and then another day after that for gold accessories for all ages. Pretty much because of these gold sequin leggingsthis tutu skirt, this gold DIY elbow patchand these Hot Jewels. So as a start, here are 10 ways I love the use of gold in decor and accessories. For more inspiration, check out my metallic Pinterest board.

  • I am really loving gold lately as well. In fact, my new blog design will have a touch of gold! Hoping this trend lasts a while longer. The ticket to the moon pillow is just fabulous!

    • A Fancy Girl Must

      Oooo can’t wait to see it! I like that it’s softer than silver. I still prefer that to gold for jewelry, but I love it’s warmth in everything else.

    I’m pretty much loving the rebirth of gold. Somehow it’s gone from tacky to tasteful.
