I like gooooold

Up until a couple of months ago, I wouldn’t look at gold. I grew up detesting anything and everything gold – maybe because I hate, hate, hate really didn’t like yellow. Something in my brain obviously changed, and since then I’ve been leaning in the direction of gold. Not massive amounts though. I think it can easily turn to overkill. Little touches, here and there. I’d say the fabulosity of Christine Dovey has had a massive part to play … 

Technically, the above curtain fixture is brass with an acrylic rod, but who cares when the eye candy is as serious as that. I need all of it. Five minutes ago. 

Alas, the weekend is finally here. Do any of you have any home projects lined up this weekend? I’ll be {fingers crossed} finishing my painting, partying, and taking pictures for a French magazine. Yep. That last bit is making me feel pretty damn fancy. I’m going to be really mean and leave you hangin’. Happy Friday, homies 😉 xx A

    I think opinions on gold (and any other colour really) are really based on how it is styled. The photos you have shown are brilliantly done in black and white. It looks stunning. I tend to think of the 1980s when I think gold, and that styling turned me off. Love this.

      Thanks Pat! I have fallen for each and every one of these pictures. I completely agree – it's all about how it's styled. There's such a fine line between spot on and overkill.
