The Gold Standard

I'm a gold girl.  Bronze, silver, not even platinum gives me the rush that gold does. 

It’s warm and sexy and adds a little magic to any material.  I love gold fabric, furniture, lighting 

and especially jewelry and hardware.  I would plate everything in gold if I could.  Now for you nay-sayers

who think gold is a finish that belongs in the 80s, take a look at the images below and get ready to swoon.

Sooo gorgeous … LOVE this gold and citrine pin!  I would wear it with a [faux]

fur vest layered over a grey cashmere sweater, jeans and a sick pair of heels.

Nancy Lorenz added graffiti-esque gold accents to Jeffrey Bilhuber's scenic

paper-covered bedroom walls.  A gutsy move by the interior design genius.
