Bakelite Gold

SW 6368

Gather ‘round for good cheers and good times with a golden hue that knows how to warm the room.

Bakelite Gold’s tawny charm crafts a joy-filled space where modern and nostalgic touches blend to create tomorrow’s heirlooms.

Why We Love It

See how we brought Bakelite Gold to life in three different rooms.

Baked-In Beauty

Bakelite Gold is perfect for bringing character and warmth to a kitchen style that blends mid-century modern design with a timeless sensibility. Against a textured backdrop of aged, Alabaster brick, this happy hue grounds the modern-feeling aesthetic in a bright but earthy energy. A luxurious blue like Still Water pairs beautifully, creating a rich and intriguing contrast that pops in such a clean and simple space. The addition of bright brassy fixtures amplifies Bakelite’s shiny and positive attitude.

Golden Slumbers

As radiant as Bakelite Gold  is on its own, this shade loses none of its charm and elegance as an accent color. Embellish the bedroom’s minimal spirit with rounded, ochre curves to bring focus without overwhelming the space in this hue’s cozy but bold character. Room accents and floor-to-ceiling curtains introduce the subtly sun-kissed shade of Rose Tan, evoking the calm serenity of pinky sunset vibes natural to an oasis environment. Feel free to lean heavily on well-behaved neutrals like Alabaster or Agreeable Gray as colors that recede into the background, yet also play a big role in tying everything together.

On the Bright Side

The bright sunshine smile of Bakelite Gold glows out loud as a warm, uplifting backdrop for a contemporary-inspired space made for entertaining. The deeper, sunbaked tone of a Sierra Redwood color block creates an engaging focal point that radiates easy and inviting vibes. Bright and lively contrasting colors in the room’s accents combine with these two vibrant hues to make any hour in this space a happy one.
