Golden girl ...

According to British poet Alfred Lord Tennyson, "Love is the only gold." But, I would wager he knew as many people who felt that "gold is the only love."

When it comes to metal finishes, count me among those who cherish gold. There is something compelling about the warmth of gold that makes me act like a magpie drawn to a shiny object of desire.

Oooh, and if that gold is gilded on antique furnishings, I'm euphoric. It's hard to contain my desire for the burnished charms of old gold.

In design styles old and new, a masterful golden touch makes me swoon.

I know decor preferences revolve from gold to silver to tarnished bronze and back again. But, my heart never strays from a golden preference.

I'm a golden girl from head to toe!
