Combining colors and shades is not something everyone is good at. But you don’t have to be an expert to know that black and gold is a very elegant combination. This luxury combo lets you transform your living room or your entire home into a sumptuous space. Let’s see how this works.
First of all, you need to think of black as being the main color and gold being just an accent shade. Too much gold will make a space look bad and lacking style. As a result, there are numerous options to explore. You could, for example, paint a wall black and have drapes with golden accents or wallpaper featuring the same characteristics.
A black wall is also a nice background for black furniture with golden details or for accent features such as golden sconces or lamps golden details.
Lighting fixtures with gold accents are also an elegant option on their own. For example, modern pendant lights may have a black exterior and a golden interior or an industrial pendant may simply feature a shade of gold without any other additions.
The reason why this color combination is so elegant and beautiful is that the two shades are very different so the contrast between them is very strong. Also, because gold is such a strong color that is has to be used in small amounts makes the combination very nicely balanced.
