Which colors come to mind when you hear the word “neutral”? White? Gray? Beige? Bet you hadn’t considered gold. Throughout 2017, we started seeing more and more gold (and brass and other yellow metallic) slinking back into the design world.
And for 2018, Shaw Floors® has decided it’s important enough to be a color of the year.
“Golden hues evoke positivity, excitement, and sophistication,” says Debbie Houston, creative director for Shaw Floors. “With Gold Rush, styling options are drivers, so color can easily be the focal point or used to accentuate the overall design.”
The Color Of The Year Is Not Just About Paint
Typically, the color of the year is associated with the latest and greatest from popular paint companies, but Gold Rush by Shaw Floors goes way beyond paint. (Check out the Gold Rush Pinterest board!) It’s more of a design accent, effortlessly adding visual warmth for a gorgeous, layered look.
Shaw recommends pairing Gold Rush with natural textures (think: wood, leather, metal, and stone) “for a look that reflects and accentuates individual style, from relaxed and natural to luxurious and glamorous.”
A Homeowner’s Story
Megan is not a certified interior designer, but she is a self-proclaimed home décor obsessee. “We just completed some renovations on my new home, and as we finished, I kept hearing the same phrase from everyone who saw it as ‘rustic chic,’” she says. “The farmhouse style is definitely having a moment and, while I love it, my preferred style mixes in some modern touches.”
Megan’s redesign featured gold cabinet hardware, light fixtures, and even wallpaper to modernize the otherwise rustic space. “With reclaimed wood beams defining the open space, I felt these touches helped refine the home,” she says.
