Although my accommodations were scary I saw many beautiful sights in Hungary that really inspired me in surprising ways. Although I like gold for jewellery, I tend to decorate exclusively with silver. In fact, we replaced every single doorknob, hinge and cabinet pull with silver. We totally eradicated any gold from the townhouse. But after a visit to Gödöllő Palace, an 18th century u-shaped castle with gorgeous gardens, I think I could get on board with a few gold home accessories (especially when paired with pastel colours). Check out these contraband photos I snapped of the Palace’s ballroom:
|Was almost booted out for taking this photo!|
|Excessive, but so gorgeous. I was obsessed with this room.|
With gold on the brain, these two rooms really caught my eye:
|Canadian House & Home via Pretty Things
A bit much, but I love the wallpaper.
That light fixture!!
Do you have any gold accessories in your home? Can gold be modern?
P.S. Here is a photo of myself (and new friend Sylwia, from Poland) in behind the Palace and I am totally rocking gold leather sandals. I match the Palace.
Too bad I wasn’t also wearing this DIY bracelet I blogged about last month.
