Last month I had the amazing opportunity to be the production designer for a short film called ‘Tomorrow‘. After many discussions and many moodboards, it was decided to go for a black and gold look for the living room and kitchen space. Budget was also very tight too, H&M and Ikea were like my good style friends. So here is how I pulled this black & gold look together.
We used a black corner sofa on set and this black velvet sofa will do the job. The big cushions will make you want to sink in to it right away.
I loved this cushion and looks far more expensive than it is plus it added a talking point.
The idea behind the look was to add a bit of luxury to the space. Gold is a perfect metallic as a contrast to black. The glass dome is great way to show something that you’ve collected too.
Horse Metal Vase
I was looking for a gold piece that had the wow factor, this vase was it. Though I think it’s strong enough to be a piece on its own without flowers.
Scatty Black Frame
To add a bit of drama, we went with a print of ‘Judith and the Head of Holofernes’ and this frame from Ikea framed it well. No joke, okay a little.
Large glass plant pot
I was looking for plant pot which would look striking with a white orchid. This plant pot had the right amount of black and gold.
