A Neutral Living Room As A Glam Living Room: Just Add Gold

Saffron Marigold - Updated: August 14, 2020

It’s easy to stick to just one or two neutral colors when you embrace a neutral living room, but it’s just as easy to make the mistake of having the room fall flat. How do you avoid that one-note feeling? Just by adding a few golden accents, your neutral living room can become a glam living room that’s easy on the eyes.  As long as you don’t overdo it, your room will feel like a glam living room while maintaining an overall neutral appearance.

This year, include a few select golden touches to your fall home decor for a regal, refined way to nod to the season. We offer a few neutral prints with gilded accents that work within a wide range of personal styles. Here’s how you can use our global textiles with your fall home decor. 

White and gold curtains are a treat for your window

Decorating with neutrals creates a calm, sophisticated space. For an air of effortless luxury,  choose curtains in neutral shades that have delicate gilded accents. These create dimension, and the gentle metallics help reflect light throughout the space. These are the perfect foil for your fall and winter home accents, but they’re also the kind of window treatments you can keep up all year long.
