Gold. What can be more stylish, pretty, luxurious, glamorous than gold? Lately it has been the fame era of this color, not only on fashion accessories but also in the home decor industry. This shade of color is timeless, and is the symbol of rich, and without doubt, it gives the royalty and warmth feeling.
I'm personally a fanatic of this color, and I try to use it as much as I can, so today I'll share with you some inspiration photos and ideas for using gold accent in your homes.
PICTURES & FRAMES
DECOR & ACCESSORIES
I find that gold gives such a nice touch just for anything! It glams up the space and makes it look prettier!
I'll be linking down below some of my favorite items at the moment :)
Are you also a gold lover? Do you know any great tips that you use for your home?
One thing for sure that is lacking from this blog is fashion. What's a lifestyle blog without fashion? So that's when this blog post idea was coming into my head.
I personally do enjoy reading blogger's shopping list, or monthly favorites. They give us so many ideas to get us new things, I know I sound like a shopaholic and I'm working on it... Haha. But seriously! Who wouldn't want to get a new pair of shoes when they're on sale!
SO, as summer is just around the corner, I'm sharing with you some of the items I've been longing to get for this month! :)
1 | Shoes
Yes I'm starting with shoes, do you love shoes? Seriously, these items just make the whole outfit for you. I don't know why, but whenever comes the time to pick an outfit, I start with the shoes, then the outfit completes itself, lol! Does this work for you as well? I know these two are pretty much the same, but I have this thing that I want to get the exact same flat shoe in high heels or wedges, haha.
2 | Bags
Oh, I also love bags, and big ones please! When I saw these two bags, like omg, the first one, I don't know if you can see but it's made of plastic, and I just thought this is the perrrrrrfect bag for the beach! And don't you love the second one? Like for real, never thought there exists the color in fuschia until I found it online, I'm definitely getting these for summer. OH! They're on SALE, so go and grab them!
3 | Jumpsuits & Dresses
Who doesn't like these! I found these online for super cheap, and it's been awhile since I've been looking for a maxi dress with stripes. I love the back of this one.
4 | Blazers
I have been loving these two colors for summer. Yellow is definitely my go to color for anything bright and eye catching. You know, we like attention, haha! It has been awhile since I didn't get a blazer, and these two are definitely what I've been looking for!
5 | Sweat pants
Oh gosh, since these came out, I just got crazy over them, these look stylish just with anything! You can wear them in a cozy look, or classy with high heels on!

But sometimes, making little changes, does make big difference in our home, and today we're sharing with you some of the ways to update your space, and make it seem you have hired a decorator + without breaking your bank!
1 | Make / Update your Gallery wall
Gallery walls definitely change the look of your home, they give a touch of creativity and color. And it's a way to show you're personality and what you aspire to lead. Instead of having a simple wall, or just one picture hanging, why not make like a collage with all your favorite photos, quotes, paintings, and more! They make such a statement on your house.
2 | Add easy to install Wallpaper
We're not talking about those walls that you used to see at your Grandma's house. No, but we're talking about those great wallpapers that lately are so hitting in the market. They come in amazing patterns, and graphic designs, and there exist pretty much any design you want. Plus, they're so easy to install AND remove. They make you're room look fabulous and also make such a change to your space.
3 | Use throw Pillows
I'm sure you have a bed, or sofa that's begging for a change! So there you have throw pillows! There are so many sizes and patterns + styles, wether you're into the modern style, vintage, or just minimalist. Not sure which ones you prefer? MIX them all! They will give so much fun to your room!
4 | Decorate with Plants
Plants are such a great way to give life to a space. They give a lived-in and relaxed feeling to any space in your home. It does not matter if they have to be real plants or just fake. You know, we all don't have that patience or time for taking care of a plant, but if you do, then lucky you!
5 | Change your Hardware
This is very simple, yet a great way to change little things in our home that do make difference. You can add new hardware to anything, from the walls, drawers and cabinets. You can use different styles, or mix them all, such as gold, silver or colorful ones. There are sure tons of designs that you can try!
These might seem simple, but they can actually make a difference if you're looking for a change to your house, and of course as always, these would definitely work in any room, from your bedroom to the living room.

I posted a couple weeks ago about a new project I've been working on, it was about renovating the interior of a juice shop. And if you're interested in reading more about the project, then you can check it here:
→ Project : Juice Shop | EL FRENAZO
I know that normally in the interior design industry doesn't require to make a design board, but I know for sure that each designer is free to do their work however they feel comfortable with it. So I always make a design board based on the theme of the projects to each customer. This way helps a lot to send the inspiration and the style we're talking about to the owner of the space to be designed.
Check out their branding board ↴
As you can already see, this project was full of colors, and it was so fun working with them!
Also, if you want to check the full portfolio of 3D designs for this project, you can find it here → El Frenazo
So what do you think of the colors we've chosen?
