When it comes to interior design, colour plays a crucial role in the way that the mind perceives a room and the furniture inside it. In fact, there are certain colours that can be difficult to blend seamlessly without dominating the space and appearing to overwhelm the intended colour palette which is why it can always be helpful to consult an expert. Gold is one of these troublesome colours as it often needs to be complemented by particular shades. Read on as we go over a few top tips that may help you implement gold framed mirrors into your decor…
Recognise which colours are complementary
As a bold colour, it is safe to say that a mirror with a gold frame is going to turn a few heads. The shade can be perceived as either vintage or modern chic depending on the style of the frame, however if there’s one thing we know for sure it’s that gold mirrors are unapologetically luxurious. Since they’re already doing a lot of the work, you’ll want to hang them on a wall that’s not very busy alongside complementary base colours like black and white or earthy tones like dark green and blue. These will allow light to reflect well without taking attention away from the frame.
Making a big impact or keeping it subtle
The design of a gold mirror will often dictate how it may be integrated into your decor as thinner frames often allow you to focus on subtly and use the mirror as a part of a collection of decorative items, whereas intricate designs with thick frames tend to demand attention. Your mirrors should complement the room at all times, even in cases where they are meant to stand out so always try to consider their role in the decor in advance. This will prevent a clash that is difficult to rectify when putting all the different pieces in their designated place.
Take the design of the frame into consideration
Remember, gold is simply the colour of the frame that surrounds a mirror which means that there are a lot of other design features to factor into your decor decisions. Is the frame thick or thin? Are there any intricate details or is it minimalist? Would the frame be considered decorative? All of these questions are important when decorating with gold because it ensures that the mirror is placed in the most appropriate location in the house.
