Gold is a beautiful color that is available in solid or metallic hues, thanks to the ability to make modern fabrics that sparkle. It takes its name from a valuable mineral of the same name that is used frequently to make fine jewelry. Gold is seen as a luxurious and sometimes celebratory color. A gold throw pillow can make your space seem extra luxurious, or add a pop of glittering color against neutral or dark tones.
