Midas touch ...

All that glitters may not be gold, but I am a golden girl. I simply love the color and metallic sheen - always have, always will.

I can't think of a better way to light up a room - confidently wearing a little something (stunning, of course) in gold, or accessorizing a room for dramatic effect.

Interior designers seem to have mastered the Midas touch. They always seem to know how to use bits of the brilliant ore to perfectly showcase furnishings and occasional pieces. Never too much to look gaudy, never too little to look cheap!

I love the gold Bloom Rug featured on HGTV at left. And now, I'm going to confess to a (somewhat odd) secret longing. I've always wanted a gold painted bamboo chair like the one above. I have no clue how or why this desire emerged, but I always keep my eye out for the project chair of my dreams!

I would, however, happily settle for a colossal, gold silk headboard like the one above. Move over Midas, I may just create an oh-so-indulgent golden bedtime luxury of my very own!
