artful alchemy

Dark and light. Shadow and shimmer. In this emerging trend in the art and design world, shades of black and gold mingle with near-magical results.

From the streets of New York, to the runways at Fashion Week, black and gold have been emerging as a new combination in fashion. To me, this look speaks of luxury along with a little mystery.

The combination has also been featured prominently in jewelry and accessories, creating a bold and dramatic style.

Likewise, interior spaces are getting a decadent infusion of black and gold. Using these colors in the home is an instant way to make a statement.
