Decorating With Gold

Jonathan Adler

It's common knowledge that Jonathan Adler has a very unique eye for design. He's not afraid to take risks and show his personality no matter who the client. He's most known for his bright colors but I'm intrigued by his never ending use of gold. Reclaimed wood is a rather big deal right now and most of us would think that the wood itself is enough of a statement, but Adler? No. He takes reclaimed wood to the next level and paints it gold, maybe just because he can or maybe to pick up the gold accents from the four poster bed.

Hand chairs are self explanatory and it typically takes a pretty bold individual to have them in their home, even in the most subdued color. Gold hand chairs take the look to the ultimate level — it's so funky that it just works. Of course, Jonathan can do gold subdued as well. Maybe adding a gold mirror to an all pink room could be considered subdued for Adler — you're certainly not going to find too many all white rooms.

What do you think of decorating with gold?
