All that Glitters..

Today's guest post is from Kristin. She and I met when some of my Wall Art Prints were featured on her blog, Inspired Designer. I absolutely loved her blog and became a follower. Kristin is an interior designer and has an amazing sense of style. I enjoy drooling over all of the wonderful rooms and pieces that she finds! Thank you Kristin for bringing some of your style to my blog today!

Hello fellow readers of Crafted by Lindy!! I'm Kristin from the blog Inspired Designer and I am so excited to be featured today; I hope you enjoy my design inspiration!

When I think of Gold, I think of my honeymoon in France and all the beautiful detailed ceilings, furniture, and accessories that adorned the Palace of Versailles. 

Gold symbolizes wealth used wisely, and good health.  And people who favor gold objects are optimistic in nature.

Let this be your motto, and add more gold! 

Gold can be used in architecture to accentuate texture and relief.  It can be used to execute a modern or traditional look.


 
I love this mix of these modern house-wares; and the way the color affects your perception of these everyday objects.

Gold accents in your home can influence ideas of tradition and high fashion.

Gold can be included as an accessory to your every day life.  Just add some gold to your favorite outfit or use it to decorate your next party.
