The new year is a perfect time to liven up your home decor! Gold is warm and glittery, a great accent color for any area in the house. I love paring gold with soft pastels, bold blacks, and white walls! Here’s my inspo for each of the items above (plus, lots of blog inspired DIY options):
1 – Bar Cart! Bar carts are big news right now, esp for the yuppie generation that loves the idea of having a mini bar, but doesn’t have an apartment equipped with a built in. A bar cart is a super cute, stylish way to display cutesy bottles, glasses, straws, mixers, etc! Check out this article by Camille Styles for inspo on how to make your bar cart beautiful!
2 -Faux Antlers! Faux is everything! Faux antlers are beautiful and decorative without the cruelty that we H A T E. Use these as jewelry hangers for a multi-purpose storage / decor option! For an awesome DIY tutorial, check out The Blissful Bee.
3 / 4 – Gold dipped vases & lamps! Start with simple glass bottles or jars and DIY these boys into sparkly little gems. Two twenty one has a superb step-by-step guide! Check it out:
5 – Vintage inspired gold mirror! Try your local thrift shop, then follow HGTV’s guide on how to antique a mirror.
6 – Golden long stemmed silverware! We haven’t reached the point of DIY on these kids, but they do pair marvelously with every table setting… ever. Just go buy some.
