Today is Akshaya Tritiya, an auspicious day to buy gold. If you’re not planning on an outright splurge however, you can always add sparkle to your interiors, instead! Introduce a new look to your home today - with charming, gold accessories. Here's how. 

All that glitters need not be (real) gold but a well put-together look with touches of sparkle and shine, can certainly add glamour to your home. The key is to not go overboard: remember, where gold accents are concerned, less is definitely more. Before you begin, we suggest you create a mood board, carefully mapping out where each accessory and decor item will go. This will help you visualise the overall look before you go shopping. We've followed our own advice and created one here, filled with gorgeous items that will make your space shine without being over-the-top. Take a look!

Gold Home Decor Ideas
Starlight, Starbright 
Bring an immediate burst of glamour into your living room or bedroom, with this dramatic, sunburst mirror. If your home is filled with natural light, it will simply augment the surroundings. If your interiors are a bit on the darker side, the mirror will add instant cheer to an otherwise unremarkable room. 1. Safavieh Sun Flair Gold Mirror, Rs 12825.14, Overstock

Golden Weaves
This cotton dhurrie with subtle gold accents is perfect for the summer. It is easy to maintain and suits a modern, contemporary home which welcomes frequent guests. Place it under your dining table or in your living room, and let it be the centre of attention. 2. Beige Cotton Lattice Design Dhurrie, Rs 3,850, Jaypore

Stylishly Lit
Grace your home with this meticulously-beaded crystal ball-light, which twinkles magically and will cast a flattering glow wherever it's placed. A series of these strung across the ceiling or placed in a cluster as a centrepiece, will greatly add to the high-glam factor of your room. 
3. Beaded Crystal Ball With Fairy Lights, Gold, Rs 2,744, The Yellow Door 

The Star of the Show
One thing you can never have enough of is votives - and gold votives are even more delightful. Stock up generously on these and light up every corner of your home. The dancing candelight combined with the sleek gold design of the star-shaped votives will create a magical ambience in your home. 4. Star Votive, Rs 1,290, The Label Life

Cocktail Hour
We recommend this two-tier glass table with a gold edging — it’s sleek and will fit your modern, contemporary home wonderfully. We think it rocks, not only because it doubles up as a bar, but also because it adds that sparkle you’ve always wanted for your cocktail corner. 5. Asian Arts Two Tier Side Table Gold, Rs 5,396, Fab Furnish 

Versatile Glamour
We love this pouff, made of solid wood and fibre, with a contemporary finish in gold. It not only adds immediate style to your home, but is also extremely versatile: make it a tray-top table, an ottoman or a foot stool. We suggest you invest in a pair, placed next to each other in your living room - they barely occupy any room, yet are elegant and comfortable additions to your space. 6. Sommers Cylindrical Pouff Gold, Rs 7,248, Fab Furnish 

A Royal Touch 
An easy way to add gold accents is through easily replaceable decor pieces — cushions, for example. Add a royal touch to your home with these burnished silk cushions. Place a couple on your sofa or even on your bed, to inject some additional sophistication into your surroundings. 7. Avocett Royal Golden Cushion Cover Rs, 312, Fab Furnish. 8. SEJ Silk Golden Cushion Covers, Rs 357, Fab Furnish 

Totally Trendy Tabletop
Bring home a festive vibe this Akshaya Tritiya with this cutwork votive in gold. Place a pair of these on your coffee table with fragrant candles within, to set the tone for a perfect dinner get-together.  9. Gold Suzani Cutwork Votive, Rs 810, The Label Life 

While gold jewellery may be too expensive to invest in this festive season, gold accents for the home are not. Be creative and watch how your house comes alive with subtly sophisticated decorative items. What do you think of our all-gold palette? Share your thoughts with us on
