As we head toward the end of February, most of us simply can't wait for the break from the cold weather that comes with spring. If you feel you've been inside too long, and are looking for a refreshing way to redecorate at the end of the season, you may want to try the classic color combination of blue and gold.
These two hues look so nice together that it doesn't seem to matter what era they were used in: They've always been popular in home decor. That's great news for you, since choosing to make use of these traditional colors in your home won't seem like a trend-driven decision, and the look will have some staying power for the next several years. But, given the nature of blue and gold as shades, it's unlikely to look stuffy the same way, say, a chandelier might.
A great way to incorporate this color combination into your house is through your window treatments. It's easy to find drapes in a variety of blues, all of which will bring in some of the cheery happiness that comes with spring time. While there are patterns that include gold accents as well, many homeowners decide to include this accent through gold tiebacks.
Whether you choose hardware or a simple gold-toned tassel, you will have successfully incorporated a sunny hue into your home without having to cheapen the look of your design scheme.
Those of us who are looking to brighten our decor just a little bit at the end of a long winter might find that this lovely combination of hues does exactly what they're looking for. Something as simple as changing your drapes might be exactly what the doctor ordered to liven up the look of a house that's gotten a little dingy recently.
