During these bleak times, a little color therapy would do us good! Between the Ebola epidemic, the wars, the crashes, invasions, genocides and so on…living in the golden bubble that Hong Kong is , you realize day after day how lucky we are to be in such a safe and stable environment.
So just for a while, just in the time it takes to share with you these few lines, let’s indulge ourselves in the richness ans splendor of gold. In Asia, it is said to be a mineral light, sign of perfection. With its perfect light, gold will thenceforth be used to symbolize perfect beings. Buddha is therefore often covered in gold. Its sight warms the heart and the spirit. We feel secure in a golden environment because it reflects material abundance.
In design, we rarely use gold on its own because it can quickly become oppressive. Ideally, gold is used to add a glow, a sparkle to a space. It generally goes well with all the other colors: I find the association with coral, pink, blue-green or peacock blue very interesting because it gives it a modern twist. Black, brown and white colors will be used for a more classic look.
Here is a little selection from our Pinterest page.
Wishing you a beautiful week
