Trend #1. Soft Gold is the New Popular Finish
Lately, there has been a spike in the popularity of soft colors. Homeowners have fallen in love with colors such as grey and greige (grey plus beige). Soft gold falls right within this spectrum of soft colors that work so well for contemporary decors to choose for your remodel. Soft gold falls somewhere in the middle of brushed silver and brushed gold. It borrows the soft matte finish of these two hues while bringing out the warmth and mellowness of gold. This also means that it can blend in with almost any kind of décor from modern urban to farmhouse.
How to use it: Soft gold lighting fixtures come in a variety of styles and designs. For overhead lighting, look for fixtures that accentuate the gold. You can also check for fixtures that complement the soft gold with other soft colors like grey or matte silver. Use soft gold lighting to attract attention to specific corners or areas of your living room. A great idea is a soft gold reading lamp illuminating the reading chair and shelf at the corner. 2020 gold lighting falls more on the soft side with bright brassy gold fixtures still not being very popular, perhaps because it reminds you of grandma’s house. Soft gold will be around for quite a while.
Trend #2: Retro and Industrial Styles are Coming Back but in More Refined Forms
Shopping and picking out new light fixtures can be a fun but slightly exhausting adventure, hopefully the trends above will help you narrow down what you’re looking for!
