A walnut built-in shelf unit with open shelving above and cabinets below pops off the white wall in this modern sitting room. The white walls are also an ideal blank canvas for the large sketches set off by gold frames.
On this wall, designers used some of the homeowner's keepsakes (including vintage candleholders) as the starting point for a pretty display. The salvaged shelf on the radiator was sanded, clear coated, then embellished with gold foil. The little glass bottles on top were dipped in white paint, the embellished with gold foil as well.
Panels of white beadboard line the back of a built-in bookshelf for a quaint cottage look. Turquoise and gold wallpaper above the built-in shelving unit serves as a mini accent wall, adding interest to this neutral living room.
On the other side of the family room, a plush pink armchair cozies up next to a built-in bookshelf, creating a colorful reading corner. A golden floor lamp sits within easy reach and casts a warm glow across the space at night.
A square chaise is centered in this bright, contemporary room creating a stylish sitting space. A gold and black chandelier hangs above, popping against the white walls. A built in bookshelf faces a large, antiqued asian door adding color and accent to the room.
Cutting through the rich, dark color scheme of this stylish dining room, designer Jenny Rothman of Rothman and Rothman Design adds elegance and sophistication with a gold leaf light fixture and shimmery bookcase backsplash using a gilded fresco wallpaper. The mirror is a French trumeau with gold details. Vibrant yellow seating adds personality to the glossy dark wood dining table.
Vibrant jewel-toned velvet chairs pop against the all-white trim, walls and built-in bookshelf. Gold floor lamps make for a luxe pairing with magenta armchairs. Without curtains, natural light flows in freely through the windows reflecting off all the white surfaces to brighten the space even more.
This traditional living space is lined with dark-stained recessed-paneled walls and built-in bookcases. The rich-wood look is continued with the fireplace mantel, coffee table and display column. A tufted leather chair, red upholstered furniture, gold accessories and the decorative fireplace screen add to the upscale, Tudor-style vibe.
Deep navy blue curtains, throw pillows and a throw blanket add depth to the color scheme in this neutral bedroom. Patterned green pillows add extra color to the plain, white bed linens. The traditional bedside tables are framed in gold with a mirror top on the bottom shelf. A neutral tufted headboard blends with the walls adding subtle texture.
A garden doesn't seem complete without juicy cantaloupes. ‘Infinite Gold’ is a hybrid developed for long shelf life, so the fruits stay ripe for several days longer than other types. It's been called "the next big thing in cantaloupe" for its flavor, aroma, high yield and good disease resistance.
Mini refrigerators are useful, but they aren't all that attractive. Personalize your dorm room refrigerator using strips of washi tape. We created an abstract stripe design with metallic gold tape. Chalkboard adhesive over the freezer allows you to further personalize the appliance. A light turquoise stacked shelf creates a cute and useful pantry for food and kitchen accessory storage.
This farmhouse inspired kitchen is full of rustic and vintage detail. From the gold metal and tin pendant light to the ornate shelf brackets that match the hood range this kitchen is full of charming allure. The deep well sink is accented by the large kitchen window and wood grain tile backsplash surround with mosaic detail.
A trio of gold containers pop against the white walls of this room and add shine and flair to the design. The metallic finish is a nice contrast to the surrounding satin finishes. A white faux-wood mirror frame and two-toned curtains frame the shelf display with added texture and color.

Black and gold is a key part of the English Regency-style aesthetic. This elegant master bathroom by designer Patricia McLean has sleek surfaces, including the black porcelain sink, tile and marble baseboards. Black customized full-panel shutters and a Regency-style bookcase with a black wax finish add polish. The look is reinforced by a stenciled zebra rug and taffeta shower curtain.
A peaked accent all displays bookshelf wallpaper for a library-like feel to this bright sitting room. Natural light combines with the gold, art deco lamp and cylindrical light fixture for plenty of light to show off the design. A pair of striped navy armchairs are decorated with magenta and lavender floral throw pillows. A patterned ottoman and animal hide rug finish off the stylish set up.
For the wine connoisseurs, select your favorite bottle for guests to write on with a gold or silver permanent marker. When you open it is up to you – but it could be a neat memory to open the bottle on your first anniversary. Once the bottle is empty, rinse with soap and water, let it dry and display it on a mantel or bookshelf as a keepsake.
The back of this built-in bookcase is lined with Novogratz Constellation removable wallpaper. The off-white peel-and-stick paper with gold foil design creates striking contrast against the deep green walls and dark wood shelves and can easily be removed or replaced. Accessories like a "hello" sign made from wire, astronaut artwork, a moon LED night light and a brontosaurus tillandsia planter add to the whimsy of the display.
