Whether you're looking to make a space splashy and dramatic, rich and warm or subtle and sparkly, here are 10 colors to go with gold that will elevate any room of the home.

Vivid Blue for Drama

The easiest way to decipher what colors go well with gold is to take it back to the first grade and look across the color wheel. Deep ocean blues are the perfect complement to the richness of golden yellows, as shown in this moody kitchen. Vibrant blue walls and trim, painted Hague Blue by Farrow & Ball, create a pleasing backdrop for brass pendants and gold foil glass tiles.

Jade Green for Richness

Yellows and greens sit next to each other on the color wheel, which means they're analogous. To ensure the two hues don't clash, pick a gold that leans more orange and a green that leans bluer. The bronze finish on this funky mirror, contrasts well with the jewel-tone green walls.

Black and White for Sophisticated Glam

There's nothing more classic than the combo of black and white, and with gold mixed in, it's foolproof. Black and white provide the ultimate stage for gold to shine, like in this ultra-glam kitchen. Just make sure not to overdo it or else you run the risk of your space being too opulent. Stick to gold accents like barstools, hardware or a range hood.
