Gold is the NEW Gray

Move over gray, you’ve got some competition! I’ve seen a new color popping up for a while now, first in decor, then wallpaper, and now I just can’t get enough! Gold has been part of design and decor for centuries—remember those awful brass lighting fixtures you just couldn’t wait to rip out of your first home? Well now the color gold is trending big time, and everything from housewares to nursery walls are starting to feature this gorgeous hue. Here is some gold nursery inspiration to spark your imagination.

First, this gold nursery just about made me fall out of my chair. I mean HOLY NURSERY DESIGN PERFECTION. It’s perfect for a boy or a girl, and it will easily transition into a big kid room down the road.

And then I saw this. Wait for it, wait for it…it’s a gold glitter wall. Yes, glitter! WITH a monogram. AND gold polka dots. Honestly, this adorable room includes all of my favorite nursery trends!

Now I’m already planning on where I can have gold foil stripes on my ceiling (surely my hubby won’t mind it in our master, right?) and probably a glitter wall too, but in case those are a little too bold for you, consider the painted furniture trend. It’s an easy DIY, and you can really make a piece like a gold dresser or crib pop in a space like this pink and gold nursery.

If gold wallpaper isn’t your thing, you could also try adding the metallic tone in your decor. I love this gold pouf, perfect in the corner for play time or to use as a ottoman with your glider! And the contrasting tones of navy, coral and gold are just stunning in this nursery.
