What colors go with gold?

Gold is the hottest metallic out there these days. Whether in the bathroom or the living room, and you may wonder “what colors go with gold”? Gold is here to stay (at least for a little while) and it adds a warmth and patina to any room.

We are moving away from the industrial silver looking fixtures and the black metallic finishes of the 2010s to a warmer color palette.

So which colors go with Gold?


Black and White goes with gold


Black and white interiors need something like gold to make them look a little more alive. Gold is the perfect color to use as an accent against these two stark colors. It adds a bit of needed warmth to any room and the white and black make a perfect backdrop.


Pink goes with gold

Pink can feel very young but when you pair it with a rich metal like gold it transforms the color into something altogether grown up and glam.

Pink and rose gold has become a very popular color combination for home offices.


Green goes with gold

Mint green and olive green are two great colors to pair with gold. They both have a natural richness that will complement the warm tones of the metal.

Gold is a great metal to make mint green seem much more lux instead of young.


Blue and Purple go with gold

Soft blues and purples are lovely complements to gold. They will add a touch of elegance and sophistication to the space. You can go very dusty and use gold to be an bright pop, or go full boho and use it everywhere.


White goes with gold

White is a perfect background for gold. It will make the metal look brighter and more luxurious. Plus it adds a much needed break for the eye.

If you are anxious about using gold in your home, this is a great place to start. It looks lovely!


Neutrals go with gold

Gold goes great with any neutral color. This includes black, white, tan, beige, and other variations of these colors. You can use it as an accent or as the main color in the room.

Gold looks better in neutral rooms that are slightly warm in tone. Too much gray in the room and gold won’t fit as well.


Silver goes with gold

I know it sounds crazy but silver is a great color to use with gold because it helps to ground the brightness of the gold and it creates a beautiful, icy contrast. Mixed metals are a great way to make a room look luxurious.

So there you have it! These are some great colors to go with gold. Use them to create a look that is both luxurious and timeless.
