Go bold with black and gold

One of my favourite trends of 2016 is the pairing of black and gold. The combination of soft, warm and glamorous gold with midnight black creates the most glorious elegance and gives an exciting edge to pretty much any scheme.


Whether you use the complimentary shades of black and gold to update your furniture, home accessories or soft-furnishings, this is an interiors trend that epitomises opulence. A touch of gold in an immaculate room will instantly lift its aesthetic.


Create a sophisticated and glamourous Art Deco look with black and gold furniture, and accessorize with gold lamps and mirrors to create a soft, warm and elegant glow.


Golds and brass warm up a space and reflective surfaces bounce light around a room, and using a few well-chosen pieces as accents create a glamorous and affluent look no matter what your interiors style. Stick to just a few accents like the examples above, or for a more daring and dramatic look invest in some black and gold furniture or artworks.


No one covers this Art Deco inspired trend better than Sweetpea & Willow. Want to tiptoe into this trend without teering into over-the-top territory? Opt for just a handful of complimenting accents, such as the below sunburst mirror or square mirror, the gold vase and the lamp – or even that fabulous eye-catching pendant light for something a little more daring…
