Simple luxury: black + gold


A classic black blazer with crested brass buttons, a dark leather handbag with gold hardware - there's something eternally sophisticated and innately luxurious about this rich combination. Simple, striking, yet very dramatic -what better to add a touch of glamour to 
your holiday decor?



While the appeal is definitely universal, I often find black and gold have a strong, and slightly masculine feeling. Paired with fresh white and warm tan, the look reads unadulterated luxury.




The art pictured above is by Toronto artist Murray Duncan, who co-owns Hardware Interiors - a favourite of mine.
