What Colour Goes with Gold Wallpaper?

For thousands of years, gold has been considered a symbol of luxury, glamour, wealth and success. The significance of this colour through the ages is embodied within historic buildings worldwide. In feng shui, gold represents the sun and is thought of as a tool to attract prosperity. Extravagant on the outside, gold conceals warmth and vitality at its core.

The beauty of gold lies within its ability to uplift a look or a mood. But when it comes to interior design, gold can sometimes prove to be a tricky customer. Used in the right way, it can be beautifully elegant, but it is all too easy to misjudge and end up with an overdone look.

This is where the maxim, less is more, comes into its own. Accessorising with gold rather than leading with it is often wise advice. Gold highlights rather than blocks of colour work well, especially in nature-inspired or rustic chic decorative schemes.

Blending gold with complementary colours is another way to introduce this shimmering shade into your home décor whilst keeping it tasteful. This approach works particularly well with wallcoverings.

So, if you are tempted to use gold within your decorative scheme, it will be useful to know what colour goes with gold wallpaper. With this in mind, here are our top choices to help you make the ultimate colour pairing, with gold at the heart of it all.

What’s the best colour pairing for gold designer wallpaper?

Gold is quite a flexible colour to work with in terms of matching with other hues.

As a natural element, it pairs well with organic shades such as browns, greens, reds and oranges. Nothing says romance more than pink and gold, whilst there’s something timelessly elegant about cream and gold, and a certain richness when blended with a night time blue.

Cream and gold wallpaper

Kintsugi, meaning ‘to join with gold’, is a 15th century practice with a dual meaning. On the one hand, it is a reminder to remain optimistic when things fall apart and to celebrate the flaws of life. On the other, it is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with golden lacquer. And it is this very art that has been embodied into this metallic gold wallpaper with striking effect, set against a marble look background that echoes the charming villas found scattered across the island of Capri.
