Board #264 | Teal and Gold

Gold might be my new favorite accent color. It works with so many other colors – hot pink, peach, emerald green, red – and adds luxury to any palette. Inspired by the cover photo from the March 2006 issue of Domino, I’ve paired it with teal and white, and I think it’s a combination of colors that could work in winter, spring, or summer. Gold isn’t as neutral as gray or brown, and if you let it take over I imagine things could get pretty gaudy, but little flashes of gold? Mixed in with another color? Love it.

Mood: bright, shiny
Palette: teal, gold, white

    Sorry … I was trying to make the link nice for your readers!

    Our original idea of the ivory/white and gold colors started looking very 50th anniversary, and the ceiling of our reception hall was too perfect of an inspiration. It’s a bit darker than your teal color, but sapphire and gold are equally as lovely.

  • Julia says:

    how lovely! I’m usually not a gold person, but wee touches of it in against the teal looks v classy!

    I like this color combination – a fresh pop of orange is a nice accent color here, too.

  • Jessica @ budgetsavvybride says:
