For the longest time I hated gold. I would not wear gold jewelry, would never put it anywhere in my home...I though it was tacky and preferred silver/stainless steel. Over the years it has slowly grown on me and now I find myself happily wearing gold jewelry (even the pieces I got as a kid from my Italian relatives for religious events), I LOVE pendants with the underside in gold leaf, gold faucets, and I even asked for gold cutlery for Christmas. I love this Piso Barrio Gótico, Barcelona by interior designer María Lladó. It's just he right amount of gold and deep yellow that adds a decadent, slightly exotic feel.
