Bits of Gold


I’ve (Christina) historically been pretty shy about using gold in our home. I suppose you could say I’m more of a burnished bronze or an aged brass kind of girl, but glitzy gold is very accessible in small doses. An accessory here and an accessory there and I’m feeling richer already. Ok, maybe not richer, but a little sassier perhaps. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite gold accessories from the independent design community to share with you today. See anything you like?

The deer head is beautiful! The same etsyshop also had an amazing golden rhino! Perhaps I too should add some more gold to my home. Now that I think about it I don’t think I have anything 😮
