Although it can be less than practical for some homes and families, white is a timeless classic clean color that, when paired with gold, can create a delicate elegant ambiance in any bedroom.

Exuding a certain charisma, this color combination can add light and brightness to any space and can even make your room seem bigger.

While this color combination may be elegant and vibrant, the color gold also carries the reputation for being an arrogant and pretentious color. White may not be the most practical color choice for any home. Easily susceptible to stains and dirt, white can quickly appear dirty and dingy in high traffic areas and those homes with small children and some pets.
A combination of the ultimate light neutral color and one of the most popular metallic hues, white and gold, can be widely versatile, but too much gold can verge on tacky and excessive. We will show you some of the most popular design styles of white and gold bedrooms and discuss in more depth some of the pros, cons, and design features of these bedrooms. Just keep reading.
