I love watching trends cycle in and out of favor. Three years ago, Catrin wrote a post predicting that gold fixtures would make a comeback in the bathroom and asking readers whether they could stomach this. The response, almost universally: not in a million years. But, sure enough, over the last few years gold (and brass) fixtures have been slowly cropping up in bathrooms all over. What do you think — still not a fan? Is the look growing on you? Or have you loved it all along?

Cement walls give this bathroom from Skona Hem a bit of a rustic vibe: the gold faucet adds a glamorous touch. It's a pleasant sort of tension.

Gold and light wood — a surprisingly beautiful combination. (Since this is the inside of a shower, I think these might be wood-look tiles instead of actual wood.) Spotted on Yazter.

The modern shape of these fixtures contributes to the sleek feel of the bathroom; the gold tone balances out the dark marble and floor tile and makes everything a little more light-hearted. From from Elizabeth Roberts.
