Use gold, but not too much gold
Gold is glamourous, rich, and elegant. It will give your home the touch of class that it craves. This Raya, do not hesitate to experiment with gold. It could change the dynamics of your living room, your bedroom, your kitchen or even your bathroom.

Gold helps accentuate these colours and at the same time, it gives off a comprehensive brilliance.
