Grey and gold has been on the design scene for a few years now, and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. In fact, rather than receding, gold and brass tones are hotter than ever!
But what I like about this particular combo is the unexpectedness of it. Until just a few years ago, grey was usually combined with silver tones, like chrome and nickel, even in fashion. It seems every kitchen had silver toned hardware, whether that kitchen was grey, white, or something else. But now, the contrast is so refreshing.
Grey is a cool color, while the gold warms things up. I think it’s a natural reaction to the grey on grey trend where sometimes, in my opinion, it got so one dimensional that it appeared very cold. The gold tones break that up and give the space the warmth it needs. In fact, the greys are made even more gorgeous by all those gold and brass tones!

And how about in fashion? As I mentioned earlier, previously white gold or silver accessories would have been a natural with anything grey. However, just like the home trend, grey outfits are being accessorized with yellow gold jewelry and watches, and it works!
Again the warmth of the gold really mixes so well with the pale grey. Love! Via Larson Jennings.
