If you ask us, decorating your home primarily in the colour that you like best is a great way to keep yourself in a good mood a daily basis. No matter what that colour is, there are always subtle, stylish ways to incorporate that into your wider décor scheme as an awesome accent without letting the colour actually take over your whole living space. Of course, the best way to do this is by using your DIY skills because it means the pieces you make will be custom and naturally they’ll suit your space better than something premade that you bought from the store!
So, what’s our favourite colour to decorative with as of late, you ask? Well, we actually have to admit here that the colour we chose to write about today is not our favourite colour in the rest of our lives, but there’s just something about it that makes us gush when we see it used effectively in beautiful (especially DIY) home décor. We’ve been completely obsessed with crafting and decorating using gold!
Just in case you feel the same, check out these 15 DIY gold décor projects that we can hardly wait to make for ourselves.
1. Gold ribbon stamped place cards
We’ve talked a lot about home décor so far, but that doesn’t mean you can’t include temporary home décor under that umbrella as well! Nothing will impress your guests more than a decorative scheme for a party, dinner, or special occasion that perfectly matches or plays off of your actual home décor, making the event blend seamlessly into the space. For a subtle touch of gold, we love these name stamped gold foil place holders from Flax and Twine.
2. Modern gold key holder
Do you love the idea of adding a subtle, simple bit of gold to your décor scheme but you’d rather it be a permanent one to your actual home décor rather than just one you might feature at a single diner? Then take a look at this gold wire decorated key shelf instead! Francois et Moi walks you through the steps of making the geometric shapes out of jewelry wire, painting them gold, and affixing them to the simple key shelf before you hang it.
3. Gold and colour blocked vases
DIY vases are one of our very favourite things to make, especially if we’re creating a series that are all different shapes and sizes. We love the idea of having them vary just a little bit, even as they match in colour scheme or concept. That’s why we loved this little colour blocked DIY vase collection from A Kailo Chic Life! The thing we like most about their vases, however, is naturally the reflective gold foil around the middle of each one. Besides being eye catching thanks to its shine, it creates great visual delineation between the colours on each vase.
