When working on an interior I always like to have a recurring design element or constant thread that flows through the property to ensure there is flow. I usually use a metal finish or flooring colour (not necessarily a floor material!), but mostly its a metal. I will use it in varying portions in the art, lamps, furniture bases, or accessories. So here goes my mini homage to gold/burnished gold.
“All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost.” – JRR Tolkein
