Gold Rush

All that glitters is indeed gold with these brilliant home accessories.

With everything from furniture to textiles to hardware available in gold, it’s easy to add a metallic glimmer to the home. In Rocketts Landing, homeowners are bathing in luxury in an upscale bathroom by Richmond-based interior designer Jennifer Stoner with matching gold faucets, drawer pulls, lighting fixtures, and mirror. An all-white kitchen designed by Case Design/Remodeling in Falls Church relies on gold tones to give it warmth and visual interest, from its cabinet hardware and faucet to the pendant, stools, and accessories.
