On Trend: Blue and Gold

If you’ve perused through recent magazines, blogs, and catalogs, you’ve noticed one of the latest trends is blue and gold. While this may appear as a trend, we like to think of it as one of the most timeless colors—blue—pairing up with the most classic of all metallics—gold.  While blue evokes peaceful, calm vibes, the gold adds richness and vibrancy to warm it up. Combining these hues in your home creates a look that will endure for years—no matter what your home décor style.
