Rose gold decor continued to trend throughout 2017, and it seems to be entering the new year with the same gusto. The color is so versatile it can accentuate classic or contemporary color schemes. More importantly, an added splash for luxury or a splurge for a feminine influence will highlight a variety of color ornamentation or design concepts. The rose gold palette is not for everyone, but it can be with just the right touch.
When deciding on how much rose gold accent to add, it is essential to keep in mind the size of your home, the gender of household members, style concept, and budget. The average size of a single-family home is just above 2,600 square feet, so you have much space to cover if you want to makeover every room in your house. Before underscoring the beauty of your home with an over-abundance of rose gold accent, take a moment to think about how each piece can singularly transform the interior of your home.
Color Schemes: Before we talk about decor, let’s discuss color schemes. Pink metals have, for the most part, entered the realm of trendy decor over the last decade.

Pastels, as well, are extremely functional in that rose gold fits with any changes you want to make in the future. Rose gold is a combination of 75 percent gold, 22.25 percent copper, and 2.75 percent silver components, so these blended metals mix well with many home furnishings.
Bedroom: People spend almost one-third of their time in their bedrooms. It is a room you can make your own if metallic pink defines you.If you have a significant other, adding a little rose gold is an excellent way to blend in gender-neutral colors.Adding a headboard, bedside table, and a lamp can do wonders for bringing a space to life.If that is just a bit much, try adding a clock, picture frames or small wall decor.
Living Room: The living room is usually the first place that visitors enter, so you want to select items that add elegance.Choosing this room to accessorize is a choice well made since you can incorporate rose gold with just about anything. A chic light fixture, planters, and a framed art piece can add flair to any living room.
If you want a bit more, try adding a rose gold coffee table and a matching set of end tables to revitalize this area. If you decide to tone it down, you can select a few candlesticks to add some sophistication.
Kitchen: You might be surprised to know that people spend more money remodeling kitchens than any other room in the home.
