Design tips for decorating a gold style bedroom

Here’s how to achieve the gold aesthetic room of your dreams.

What’s the best way to design and decorate a gold bedroom?

Whether you are designing for yourself or someone else, bedrooms should be cozy and comfortable, providing a space to unwind, recharge, and escape the chaos of the world. Even if your typical design style is more maximalist, bedrooms usually lean more minimalist to offer a serene backdrop for a good night’s sleep. Bedroom layouts are also more simple. The square footage of your bedroom and size of your bed frame will typically dictate the best layout.

Whether you're in the process of a bedroom remodel or looking to makeover your existing one, these are the key elements to include in your design:|

  • Paint or Wallpaper: Bedroom walls set the mood for the space. Select a color or pattern that complements the style you want to achieve. We are partial to covering walls, ceilings, and trim in a uniform paint color to create a cohesive look. Or consider an accent wall to serve as a focal point.
  • Bed: The bed is the centerpiece and typical focal point of any bedroom, providing a comfortable and restful place to sleep. It typically includes a mattress, bed frame, and headboard. Your gold style can really shine by selecting bedding (sheets, duvet covers, and pillows) that match the aesthetic.
  • Nightstands: Nightstands (or bedside tables) are small tables or cabinets placed on either side of the bed. They provide a convenient surface for placing bedside lamps, alarm clocks, books, and other personal items. Pro tip: Bedside tables should be placed 2-4 inches from the bed frame and no more than 24 inches deep (any deeper and it can be pretty uncomfortable to get in and out of bed). If you choose to add a table lamp or a sconce, keep in mind the depth of the light to ensure you have enough space on the bedside table.
  • Area Rug: It’s common to include an area rug in a bedroom for extra warmth and coziness. There are three common layout options for rugs in the bedroom. Option 1, place the bed and nightstands entirely on the rug. Option 2, place ⅔ of the bed on the rug, with 24 inches extending beyond the sides of the bed. Option 3, place two runners along each side of the bed (the runners should be wider than the bedside tables, if possible).
  • Decorative Lighting: Combine task, ambient, and accent lighting for a layered lighting scheme. Typically in a bedroom, you’d want a flush surface mount or chandelier on the ceiling and wall-mounted sconces or table lamps on each side of the bed. Consider the placement of lighting fixtures to eliminate shadows and evenly light the space. Dimmer switches can adjust the mood.
  • Curtains or Blinds: In bedrooms, window treatments are not just design statements. They help promote a restful sleep environment, while also adding a layer of privacy and warmth. Opting for blackout or heavy, lined curtains can enhance these effects, making them perfect for ensuring comfort and tranquility. Don’t forget a curtain rod!
  • ** Bedroom Decor**: From accent pillows and throw blankets to bedside table lamps and wall art, bedroom accessories should be both functional and decorative. Coordinate the color and pattern with the overall bedroom color scheme and style to bring your design vision to life.

How do you decorate with gold?

Gold is a symbol of luxury and warmth and can add a sense of opulence and refined glamor to any bedroom. You’ll find gold elements across all design styles. Gold typically takes center stage in art deco and glam spaces. Here’s how to tastefully incorporate this radiant hue into your decor, ensuring your interiors dazzle.

Gold comes in various shades, from soft, champagne golds to rich, deep bronzes. Lighter golds can add a subtle shimmer and enhance the lightness of a room, while darker golds lend a more pronounced sense of luxury and depth.

Gold makes a significant impact even in small doses. Use gold accents like picture frames, light fixtures, decorative objects, or hardware to inject a luxurious feel into the room without overwhelming. Brass is the most traditional gold metal to use in interior design. Lacquered brass will stay bright and shiny, while unlacquered brass will patina and dull over time, and brushed brass will maintain its matte appearance. A matte gold finish can offer sophistication and subtlety, while a polished, shiny gold reflects light and adds drama.

Gold pairs beautifully with a wide range of colors. For a classic and elegant look, combine gold with dark hues like navy or black. For a softer, more romantic vibe, pair gold with pastel shades like blush pink or soft lavender. To keep the design from feeling too ostentatious, balance gold elements with neutral tones like white, cream, or soft gray. Don't shy away from mixing gold with other metals. A combination of gold, silver, and bronze can create a rich, layered look that adds depth and interest to your decor.

Gold accents in wallpaper or patterned decor can add an element of luxury without the need for actual gold objects. Look for wallpapers with gold veins or patterns that incorporate gold tones.
