GOLD rush fever is on trend at the moment and can be tastefully incorporated to any home's interior so long as it is added in a subtle not overwhelming way.

Like beautiful jewellery, a golden finish can add a sense of glamour and refined elegance to your home.

The shimmery metallic hue has made a resurgence in home decor this year from small scale decorative objects to larger scale items such as furniture, wallpaper and opulent mirrors.

Gold will add a sense of warmth to any room no matter how you decide to incorporate it into your home.

For the kitchen, gold or copper toned pendant lamps hanging above an island bench will add an immediate sense of gourmet glamour.

If you want your kitchen clear of hanging pendants, consider hanging a feature gold toned pendant over the dining table.

It will not only add a depth to the room but will also add ambient lighting.

For living zones, consider wallpaper with gold threads or subtle tones throughout.

The shimmery effect will capture sunlight at various times of the day adding a magical ambience to your living zone.

Many antique-style occasional chairs feature ornate trim which when painted gold offers instant luxury.

Complete a room with floor lamps in gold finishes, coffee and dining tables with gold legs or a large ornate mirror finished in gold foil.

The options are endless.

For small scale glamour consider home decor options such as vases, statues, picture frames, teapots and cushions in gold.

Moroccan pouffes are also popular decor choice at the moment and are available in gold as well as other metallic hues.

Be bold this summer and embrace a splash of gold in the home.
