Black and Gold Bliss

Black and Gold Bliss

I am presently smack dab in the middle of a MAJOR obsession with black and gold…seriously can not get enough.
I’ve been ‘favouriting’ things on Etsy for the new kitchen and aside from some pretty milk glass and the like, everything seems to be gold.
So on that happy note, here’s a little peek at my inspiration folder and want bag…with a little room board for good measure.

{all photos via Pinterest, items via Etsy (pinned),1st Dibs and Ebay…if you’re interested in anything let me know and I’ll forward the link}

So how about you…do you share my penchant for all things gold and black these days?

    Hi lovely Christine,

    Bliss indeed! But that monochromatic painting in gold – oh my! I wonder if I can make something similar myself… Very, very nice.

    I am back from my whirlwind trip to Stockholm (came back last week). One of these days we need to plan a blog-get-together over there (Ally has already signed up!). Talk about an inspirational city!

    Love to you,

    What amazing images!! I am loving the brass/gold injections that I am seeing in homes now. I have been saying for a couple of years that it is the next trend and most laughed at me…it is such a better combination than the pink/gold from the 80’s and making me hungry for more.

    I have ALWAYS adored black. Adding a bit of gold just makes black more classy. LOVE those large scale chevron pillows with gold velvet – OMG! And have always loved the Federal Mirror!

    Adore that gold console table, kind of reminiscent of Gabriella Crespi. If you have a link that would be divine.

    My bedroom is black and gold and it is very dramatic. But a nice respite from the rest of the house which is quite light.

    Yes we are twins on this topic. I’ve been carefully editing out color here and there to simplify and have been replacing with black and gold items.

    Love love love those black white pillows. Link me?

    LOVE it too. My ‘horchow’ black and gold mirror on my mantel started it, now I’m trying to get the rest of rhe room to go with it. And can you believe that less than a year ago I spraypainted my brass chandy?!?’ how could I despise it so then, and want it back so badly now???
