Going for the Gold: Accents Inspired by the Winners

Watching the Olympics is good for two things; making you feel small about your accomplishments up to this point and (as always) DESIGN INSPO!!!! On top of being some of the best athletes in the world, these individuals really do inspire normal people like us everyday.

Here are a few spaces inspired by Olympic triumph…

What better way to embody the victories of Phelps than with a scheme of blue (obviously pool water, duh) and pops of gold? Both these designs radiate strength and brilliance while still adding a bit of glam landing them a gold medal 😉


Simone Biles

I think it is safe to say that we’re all a little obsessed with Simone Biles AND these designs. The golden accents placed in these rosey rooms really bring the glitz. 

P.S. Still waiting for Zac Efron to fly across the world for me…

This trend has come into play almost as fast as Allyson Felix can run. White with flashes of gold can make such a huge statement in a space. Also, these pendant fixtures take first place when it comes to this kitchen. LOVE.


So as we continue to watch 12 year olds do crazy flips on skinny balance beams and competitors almost hit their heads on diving boards remember this: Inspiration stems from anything and everything.


Until next Thursday…
