How to glam up your dining room with glorious gold

Here are some ideas on how to dazzle up your dining room.

You might already have some gorgeous reclaimed wood furniture in your dining room that you don't want to part with. By simply adding a gold wall mirror, some wall art with a gold frame or a clock, it could even be an antique gold if you prefer a more rustic look, you can transform the feel of the room. You can add more gold elements, by using gold cutlery, serving dishes and table linen when dining. To really embrace the theme you can add gold by having a feature wallpapered wall in gold, some gold curtains or even a rug with gold in it. An ornate gold chandelier over a dining table will never look out of place.

If you are starting a gold-themed dining room from scratch then now is the time to consider dining furniture with gold elements. The contrast of dark wood and gold is undeniably a classic combination. Below we have styled the elegant Belfort table, which blends a dark textured resin top with striking gold legs, with the sumptuous Celine velvet and gold dining chairs

The Blackbone gold extendable dining table is another one of our favourites. We love how it adds a chic twist to industrial furniture by having gold legs rather than the normal black, perfect for adding dining room sparkle. The dark oak rustic dining table top features a classic parquet design, as it is extendable it can seat up to ten, making it perfect for comfortable and glamorous entertaining. To complete the theme you can add a sideboard from the same range, perfect to pop some glitzy decorative items on such as candlesticks, pictures or a table lamp.

Cream and gold is another great combination - you can keep the decor a clean light cream and add a gold extendable dining table then style this with gold-framed dining chairs upholstered in a cream fabric. Depending on your style you can go for a classic style of chair to achieve a more traditional look or choose a modern dining set for a contemporary look.

We have all seen the gorgeous vibrant colour schemes in stately home dining rooms - for this, you can blend bold vibrant colours like red, green and blue with all that glitters and really get to grips with some majestic interior styling.
