Elegant Home Design Ideas With A Gold Sofa


Yellow, mustard, saffron, honey - there are many beautiful shades of gold for an elegant home.

Gold furniture can be one of two things: bold and overpowering, or elegant and luxurious.
Of course most of us would prefer to add elegance to our living space but how do you add this bit of luxury to your home with a beautiful gold sofa? Here are some tips to help you get started.

Colour Combinations

When you are ready to experiment with gold in your home, it's vital to keep in mind what other colours your room features and how to best combine them.

The right colour combination can help to visibly enlarge your living space, with the great effect of sophistication whilst keeping the atmosphere cosy and homely.

Gold and Deep Blue

Blue is a cool colour to work across larger surfaces but when you contrast blue with tones of warm gold in a fabric sofa, the visual effect can be stunning.
A dark, rich blue can be relaxing and creates just the right contrast with a gold sofa or gold accents in scatter cushions.

Used minimally, gold creates a luxurious feel without being too flashy. Gold used for accents and accessories, the eye is drawn to the gold, which warms the moody blue walls.

Gold and Rich Green

Similar to blue, the pairing of green and gold colourways can produce an impressive effect.
Luscious greens, from strong emerald to floral olive green, the nature trend in interior design continues, and by adding gold furniture you can create an even more luxurious feel.

Just like with blue, it's best to stick to the deeper, dark green tones which work best with warm metallic colours such as gold.
Deep green wallpaper with a saffron coloured sofa enhances the luxury effect.

If you have a lot of neutral colours in your home, the darker shades of green can complement your cream walls, tables or lighting.

Textures Do The Trick

Generally adding texture to your living space is a good idea but you can take interior design to a truly playful level when you add gold into the mix.
Whether you choose a velvet sofa to go with your floral wallpaper or a linen-look fabric with dark blue accessories, the contrasting textures create a great finish.

While a floral, fabric pattern can create a stunning texture contrast in your room, a gold Chesterfield leather sofa would be a great choice if you already have a leather suite or are looking to replicate a unique, classic style.
Nothing quite expresses luxury as leather sofas. Whether contemporary or the traditional Chesterfield design, they are guaranteed to bring this special sophistication into your living space.

It doesn't only take gold coloured sofas and the Midas effect to create a luxurious feel in your home. Dark blue walls, green accessories or deep textures can all work beautifully with a gold sofa to give your home this warm, elegant finish.

You can find golds in a range of fabric and patterns for your sofa, and for a more modern tone you can use yellow in place of golds to add a pop of colour.
