Color Palette: Perfect Elegance – Decorating With Gold & White

Gold and white is one of my favorite color palettes because it’s feminine, fresh and very elegant.  It’s perfect for anytime of the year and it especially shines during the holidays.

A gold and white color palette is also reminisent of the Art Deco era, when beautiful ornamentation was celebrated across American design.  I love that so much.

Because my home is often over run with boys, boys, boys (my sons and husband) a gold & white pallete is not a practical choice for my home year round.  But I love to change up my color scheme over the holidays and gold and white is one of my top go to choices for glamourizing a room.  It’s also perfect for party decor.

Here are some elements of Gold & White Style that anyone can use to make their space sparkle – All that glitters really does begin with gold you know.
