Gold is timeless and exudes a warmth to any interior design.

I'm working on a project where the open kitchen/family room have stone floors. Gold lighting may be the trick to warm up the expanse of the room.

Circa Lighting has so many great choices , many created by inspiring Designers. Most of Circa's lighting comes in a variety of metal finishes .

While at a Herff Christiansen show, I shot a photo of the designer's beautiful powder bathroom with the Greek key sconces (she was waiting on her mirror):

The pictures don't do the sconces justice, but I can assure you they're beautiful and rich in person.

Circa's library sconces are great to suspend over a library bookcase or above the side of a bed for reading:

I love this light to fit within a shelf in a Study or Formal Living Room.

Great to showcase an interesting book or small framed artwork, as shown here in a different finish:

Their table lamps are gorgeous:

You can always find unique kitchen pendants at Circa as well:

If gold is too shiny for your decor, you can kick it down a notch with an antiqued brass finish :

I personally love to wear a mix of gold and silver jewelry. And I like to mix the two metals in interior design as well. I mixed a silver ceiling here with a gold chandelier.

You can see in this picture below (click to enlarge also), that there are silver light pendants, nickel cabinet hardware & stainless in the kitchen. Adding the touch of gold to the dining room just gives the overall space a warmth.

Since I'm gold diggin' today, thought I'd share some new jewelery pieces I think are warm & beautiful too:

And I love gold when it's mixed with turquoise, tres chic! This gorgeous bracelet is from fellow Austinite Kendra Scott's spring collection.

Are you a gold digger too?

Have a gold kissed day,
