my friend sarah bartholomew posted the most divine inspiration board on her instagram recently. it was a collection of images and fabrics in a gold color story for a project she’s working on. i can’t get it out of my mind, maybe because it’s fall, and gold is such a fall hue. i think her mood board is so beautiful and it has me craving anything and everything gold.  

i added some images to the sarah’s story in this post…some more of daniel romualdez gold living room in connecticut, stephen sills former studio in nyc, marina rust in the most beautiful gold rosie assoulin dress, a gold rothko owned by bunny mellon, a gold twombly, and of course it would be a complete miss if i didn’t include nancy lancasters iconic gold london drawing room and god knows i have to include jackie anytime i can. 

thank you sarah for the golden inspiration, because of you and your beautiful eye i’m now obsessed with fall’s gold.
