We all need a little sparkle in our lives—so what better place than on your walls! As seen at High Point furniture market a couple weeks ago, gold metallic is a 2015 trend that’s not going anywhere in 2016. It’s in fashion, art and home decor. Here, we gathered our favorite ways how to use gold metallic paint in your home.

As seen above, a classic gold metallic wall becomes even more striking when painted with a Chinoiserie scene applique, like the cherry blossoms here. We love this idea for a formal dining room because it adds an air of sophistication and dimension. Added bonus to this particular application of the trend—you don’t need to hang wall art!

Gold metallic doesn’t have to be a loud design statement. Sometimes it’s the most beautiful when used as a soft accent. We love the touches of elegant gold on the moulding against the grey here. It’s not hard to accomplish for your professional painter but it does make a stylish impact.

Here, blogger Gorgeous Shiny Things embraced gold metallic by putting up a gold grasscloth in her livingroom. Wallpaper is coming back in a big way, however, if you’re not sure about the trend, doing something neutral and timeless like this is a safer bet than opting for a big, bold pattern.

What an elegant use of a stencil! Using a light, champagne gold metallic and a stencil on a white wall, this blogger created a subtle but statement wall. We love this upscale statement!

There’s so much to love in this gorgeous office/dining room. The gold metallic ceiling lightens the whole room up and adds an air of opulence. We also love the contrast of the gold to the white moulding and the white moulding contrasted against the dark wall. Beyond that, this room has a fantastic color palette of charcoal, emerald black and metallic. We also love the all-around great design seen here.

The more you look around, the more you’ll notice that gold metallic really is everywhere. So get creative with the color—there are no shortage of ways to use it and since the trend isn’t going anywhere soon, it’s a great one to put in your home.
