Champagne and caviar, satin and pearls – some pairings are just meant to be. This season has produced yet another in the form of a decadent colourway – green and gold.
Individually, green and gold are impressive; together, they are nothing short of magical and the design world is noticing. Gold – the ultimate symbol of luxury – acts as the (very glamorous) neutral counterpart to lush green tones in just about everything – green sofas rest on golden brass bases, marble boxes are trimmed with gold and elegant green vases adorn delicate gold furniture.
The colour combination inspires thoughts of beautiful antique emerald and gold Art Deco jewellery, exotic Moroccan tiling and gold-flecked malachite stones.
