Go Glam with Metallic Gold Lighting Fixtures for Home Interior Design

November 25, 2013

Nickel finishes have been popular lately after past years’ shiny brass fixtures, but the home fashions pendulum is swinging again. This season, metallic gold textures are all the rage.

Although the golden coloring may look strikingly similar to yesterday’s brass, the gold tones and styles of today are distinctly updated. The new metallic gold textures bring elegance, glamor, and even a little bit of bling to brighten up a home.

Why this trend? These days, consumers are taking a step away from strict budget reactions to the earlier economic slump. Instead of always tightnening their financial belts, shoppers now are ready to return to sophistication and glamor in their interior design.

Ready to see the new finish that you can incorporate into your home interior design? Today, Henderson, Nev. interior decorator Christine Ringenbach is showcasing the latest styles. From formal traditional styles to transitional looks for contemporary homes, the new metallic gold has something for everyone.

DANGLING CRYSTAL CHANDELIER

This has a feminine side with a softly pleated shade in organza fabric and lots of dangling crystals. A dangling chandelier would look great hanging above a nightstand in a master bedroom, in place of the usual nightstand table lamp.

HOW TO INSTALL

No matter what light fixture you choose, keep in mind the design principles of balance and proportion when choosing and hanging a new fixture.  For example, for a dining room table, aim to hang the fixture 30” – 32″ above the table. Then check that the diameter of the fixture is roughly 1/2 the width of the dining room table.
