Nowadays, feature walls have become a staple of our decorating, a surefire way to create the wow factor in a room without having to redecorate the whole space.  There are many unusual and tactile finishes around – suede effect paints, glitters and metallic paints to name but a few.

But have you ever thought about painting an entire room gold?

At first thought, the idea of a gold room could seem daunting to many. But with the right shade, some careful painting, and a carefully selected scheme for the rest of the room, gold can be used to create a sophisticated and understated room.

In this room, we used Artisan Antique Gold Effect and teamed this with Elegant Cream Chalky Emulsion above the picture rail and on the ceiling.

The whole scheme is based around neutrals, from the deep chocolate tones of the cushions, to natural tones and textures for the flooring and light patterned textiles.

The overall effect is calm, yet elegant.

So what are you waiting for? Try going for gold!
