Never has a color triggered our collective imagination as much as gold. It’s a precious metal that has had people charging across countries in search of a few nuggets and it has become a color that recalls luxury and natural beauty in all its glory. Luckily for us, gold is back with a vengeance this spring. Just look at any of the runway shows presented by big name brands like Dolce & Gabbana, Lanvin and Dries van Noten for spring summer 2014, and you’ll be convinced. And gold isn’t just limited to fashion. It never really went out of style for the home, and now is as good a time as any to add a little warmth and glamour to yours with some gold detailing. Unless you’re terrifically brave and enjoy ‘la vie d’or’ a la Goldfinger. Do you dare?
