Create a glamourous Art Deco look with black and gold. Accessorize with metallics and mirrored surfaces to complete the look.
Why it works
Using black with mirrored surfaces and metallics creates a glamorous Art Deco style – an on-trend look inspired by the film The Great Gatsby.
Make it work in your home
The key to a successful gold and black scheme, according to Sally, is to keep the gold to a minimum, using it on one accent wall and on fabrics and soft furnishings. ‘Imitation gold leaf applied to wallpaper looks rich in a burnt gold finish,’ she says. ‘Team this with black accessories and mirrored finishes. Gold leaf in a darker tone contrasts beautifully with high-gloss chocolate tones and black matt finishes.
‘Ebony Macassar is a striking choice of veneer if you like the characteristic warm-coloured stripe in this grain of ebony or dark-chocolate wood, which is finished in a high gloss. It looks beautiful against gold and works well in an Art Deco-style room.’
