Gold is a warm colour that can be shiny, glistening and happy as well as dull, muted and traditional. The brighter shades of gold catch the eye with their brilliance and therefore we would recommend using it on a focal point in your room as kitchen islands, cabinets, on a decorative mirror frame in your living room, or as a paint detail on the joinery to add a luxurious touch. Use darker muted shades on furniture details, wall lights and mirror tiles as they work better with other colours and do not draw too much attention they will blend better with the overall environment.
