Recently looking at some ornate gold frames, I was thinking about how this color associated with wealth is a great accent. It can go over he top, but when used in touches to outline it looks fabulous, elegant. These examples found on Pinterest just set off the schemes. Above gold is used to outline and define the architectural features.
Gold framed mirrors are a favorite and always look great, but here again, the contrast of the straight lines of the chair frame and the carved mirror and molding in the ceiling.
