Black and Gold

Black furniture with gold accents is a stately combination.  Any object with these two colors is friendly in most settings.  The darker color weights the room, and the gold punctuates the details using a hint of shimmer.  Touches of black and gold can be found throughout the living room…

This cane back black painted arm chair was a gift from my Thea Helen.  (Thea Mary‘s sister and my Yaya’s dear friend!) It was given to me after she passed away.  I cherish this gift, and use it daily at my desk.

I love its scratches and original fabric…I just can’t seem to recover it just yet!

My friend, Jacqueline, and I each made a monkey needlepoint pillow.  The black background sets off the colors, and the gold trim frames the pillow!

I found these hand painted black and gold wall sconces at an estate sale.  There were a total of 8!!!  One day I can envision them all in a grouping.  For now, I’m using them in pairs!

I love the simple yet intricate design!  The gold accents help bring the black to life!

Do you decorate with black and gold?

Enjoy the day!
