What is rose gold color? Put simply, it's a pinkish-golden color that's popping up in all sorts of designs these days. From electronics to engagement rings to manicures, rose gold is everywhere and fast overtaking silver, white gold, and yellow gold as the go-to metallic option. The pervasive popularity of this choice makes it an obvious contender in the interior design market. But what colors go with rose gold? Five of the best colors to pair with rose gold are showcased below!
1. Caspian Blue
This soft, warm blue is a beautiful contrast to the warm undertones of a rose gold color. While navy and royal blues in interior design are too cool to pair with rose gold, Caspian blue has more yellow tones that complement the underlying oranges and pinks in copper shades and rose gold. Caspian blue paired with rose gold is a beautiful choice to paint an entire room and lends itself well to both colorful and neutral décor accents.
Designing with black and golden colors creates a striking combo that instantly makes any space look modern and elegant. A black and rose gold color combination is no exception. This pairing is a less futuristic-looking choice than black and silver, and it's not used as commonly as black and gold, which can come across as dated or overdone. Warm whites and subtle yellow-toned pinks also complement this color combination well.
3. Dove Gray
Dove gray is an elegant neutral option to pair with rose gold décor or trim. Like other rose gold color combinations suggested, the key is to choose a soft, warm-toned gray that complements and contrasts with rose gold. Blue-grays will clash with the blush hue of rose gold. Cream colored décor items make for a beautiful accent pairing with rose gold against a dove gray palette.
4. Oyster Gray
Oyster gray is a yellow-toned pale gray shade that works as a subtle deviation from white and ivory palettes without darkening your space. And oyster gray makes an excellent design backdrop for rose gold accents! Although best paired with large décor pieces of a similarly neutral palette, oyster gray can become cold or washed out, so use plenty of rose gold and other orange or pink-hued accent colors to keep your room’s atmosphere warm and inviting. Warm wood colors are a great way to do this without having any conflicting color schemes.
5. Warm Nude
Rose gold is a metallic shade, but it’s matte/non-metallic counterpart is a warm, pinkish nude tone. While striking the perfect nude tone can be tricky, many variations of warm nude fit into a rose gold color palette. Challenge your inner decorator and play with different tones and saturations within one interior decorating space. A warm nude room palette is especially conducive to a mixed metallic décor scheme.
Rose gold’s warm tones blend well with a variety of colors and bring a feeling of luxury and glamour to any interior design concept. Subtler than traditional copper, rose gold provides a more feminine alternative to classic gold and gives a unique warmth that you just don’t get with other metallics. Whichever color palette you choose, rose gold can give any space an elegant update. Happy decorating!
