Hazelnut New Orleans Gold Cocktail Table With Mirrored Top - $687
This cocktail table is sure to become the focal point of the room. In the living room, a glamorous sunroom or anywhere you could use a little more glitz in your life, this is a conversation piece for sure!
Truro Gold Bread Basket By Michael Wainwright - $230
Ordinary biscuits and yeast rolls suddenly seem extraordinary when served in a gold bread basket, such as this. We would love for it to grace our dining table!
Hazelnut New Orleans Gold Coin Pillow - $210
A fabulous pillow can absolutely make an ordinary piece of upholstered furniture. We would use this pillow in the middle of a sofa to make it pop!
Gold Garland Frame With Crystals By L'Objet - $275
Some picture frames are a dime a dozen, so, when it comes to your home, make your pictures look as special as the people in them with a truly stunning frame. We would use this gold garland frame in the master bedroom with a wedding picture in it.
Stunning 1923 Set
China is one of those treasures that can be passed down for generations. Blue or green are fine, but they limit your dining room decor. A touch of gold, such as in this set, looks great with any decor and is a timeless choice.
1920's Bronze And Brass Scale - $650
We can see this bronze and brass antique scale on the desk in a masculine office. It's the perfect way to add a touch of gold to a space that's more staid.
Lucite Saw Horses With Brass Detail
You couldn't help but be inspired at such a gorgeous desk. We would love to have this statement piece in our office!
Jonathan Adler Ulu Convex Table - $1,200
As a touch of whimsy in a formal living room or a punch of gold in a casual sunroom, this is such a versatile piece.
Iron And Goldleaf Sea Urchin - $28
For salt, sugar, cocktail sauce, dip or any other entertaining staple that requires a tiny bowl, these gold-leaf sea urchins are showstoppers. We'd fill them with raw sugar cubes, cinnamon, cocoa powder and sucanat so that friends can fix their coffee with a little pizazz.
Eclectic Wall Sconces - $687.50
What an imposing way to light the entrance, inside or out. We'd turn these on when hosting nighttime events to keep the lighting low and elegant.
Gold Leafed Shells - $122
Just because it's by the sea doesn't mean your vacation spot should be left out of the gold equation. These shells are just the right amount of gold to add a splash of elegance.
Large Gold Leaf Pagoda - $248
These pagoda lanterns are stunning. We would use them to light a dark, paneled bookcase.
Anthony Console Table - $1,195
One of our favorite things about small console tables, such as this, is how incredibly versatile they can be. This table would be lovely in a living room, great in a guest room or to snazz up a sunroom.

We love a beautiful piece that can multitask. These bowls would be fantastic displayed on a shelf or counter all the time and also make festive, elegant serving pieces.

These salt and pepper shakers are elegant and fabulous! We would love to display these on our breakfast room table.
Antique Gold Leaf Collection By E. Lawerence, Ltd. - $112.20
Books are one of our favorite decorating staples, but sometimes all those multicolored spines don't go with the decor. These gorgeous antique, gold leaf books are the perfect accessory for a bookcase and would fit beautifully on a desk with bookends. Happy reading!
Sullivan Polished Brass Perforated Lantern - $165.60
This incredible lantern is so gorgeous on its own, we can't imagine how well it creates ambiance with a flickering candle inside. We want a pair of these for our mantle.
Brass Library Scales By Global Views - $1,122.50
The kitchen shouldn't be left out when the touch of gold is divvied up. These might be library scales, but we think they're fabulous on a kitchen counter or mantle and that they would be the most unique fruit bowls we've ever seen!
Gold Wishbone - $48
Perfect as the finishing touch on a stack of books, this gold wishbone is on our wish list.
