Gold futures climbed to a record $1,500 level this week, following a weaker dollar and higher oil prices. While it may be out of reach for most of us as an investment, adding the color tone is certainly manageable. Gold accents can add a touch of richness and glamour to any interior. Try adding the organic shape and rich tone of the Chilewich Gold Round Placemat ($7 each, bottom left) to a no-nonsense, angular white parsons table. Or, go for an unexpected turn in your tableware selection by trading in your silver for some gold. The Diane von Furstenberg Night Table Setting ($105) is absolutely luscious and would add instant glam to any dinner party.
In the living room, go for scientific funkiness with the Legolas Modifiable Gold Table Lamp ($80). Made from industrial materials and painted by hand, this light evokes organic structures found in nature. Finally, you can't go wrong with adding oversize golden blooms to your walls in the form of Oh Joy! Petal Pusher Wallpaper ($125 per roll).
