Regal Colors, Updated: Purple & Gold in Today's Homes

Purple and gold are a pair with a lot of history. Purple was the exclusive color of royalty, and gold detailing and accessories were a true display of wealth. A warm reddish plum or a deep aubergine are bold statements, yet I'm loving the fresh twist of an airy lilac or lavender paired with gilt accents. It's a modern twist that can work in any home, nobility or not.

Here are some of my favorite pairings of lilac and gold from around the web:

1. The Lenoxx via Curbly
2. House Beautiful
3. Elle Decor
4. From the Desk of Lola
5. Drake Design Associates

Do you pair purple and gold in your home?
