Mood Board #56: Gold Rush
By Lauren Kathryn on Sep 25, 2012 at 7:02 am in Modern and Whimsical/Playful
No wallflower, gold just wants to have a little fun sometimes, and hot pink is the perfect partner in crime. Dripping in gold and bold fuchsia, this board incorporates some of our latest trendy obsessions, including gold leaf, gold-dipped objects (no roses, whew!); and raw geode jewelry. (Etsy is overflowing with geode baubles, and on the haute end we recommend Kimberly McDonald, Dara Ettinger, and Andara.)
We love these DIY gold-leaf notebooks crafted by Whitney of Eat Sleep Cuddle, and Hello! Lucky has a wonderful tutorial on how to make similar ones with a nautical twist. As for an altar backdrop that really pops, have a look at this shimmering gold-fringed wall created by artists Julie Ho and Nicolas Andersen of Confetti System; they transform simple materials such as tissue paper, cardboard, and silk into interactive works of art. You can shop their line of modern festive objects (think sophisticated tassel garlands, luxe piñatas, and trapezoidal confetti) right here.
Last but not least, there are the shoes. Designed by Freya Rose, these limited edition “Ennis” pumps were inspired by British track and field superstar Jessica Ennis, who rocked the London Olympics. They’re accented with handcrafted roses made by a Parisian couturier using 100-year-old gold-leaf fabric.
