When we think of gold, we think expensive, precious and dazzling... Almost since the beginning of time, it has been used for our enjoyment. One of the first sightings were found in Spanish caves and the gold was thought to be from around 40,000 BC!
After all this time, this precious metal is still so sought after by many. So, it isn’t a surprise to discover that it has become a favourite in the world of interior design. And recently, decadent gold wallpaper has become a number 1 must-have in our homes.
From swirling marbles and dazzling glitter wallpapers to metallic dark sea life designs and fabulous Art Deco geometric patterns, beautiful "Au" always wins when it comes to luxury and style. Here are some of our top gold wallpaper designs to help you decide if you're ready for a luxurious feature wall in your home. Please note, our wallpapers are digitally created, so the metallic aspects will be printed as colour and not as a metallic or glitter texture.
Underwater vibes gold wallpaper

You will certainly feel like you've entered an underwater dream with this octopus wallpaper designed by SpaceFrog Designs. They host a jaw-dropping array of landscape and nature-inspired pieces that are embellished with rich metallic tones and marble effects.
Perfect in this minimalist bathroom, this on-trend wallpaper adds a level of richness and luxury which is exactly what you want in this room of relaxation. To bring even more decadence into the space, we recommended making the most of yellow gold accents - gold faucets on the bath and sink, gold handles on the vanity drawers and even a statement gold ceiling lamp!
Good as gold marble wall murals

A recent and already extremely popular design in our gold collection, this mesmerising Creamy Caramel Geode wall mural is a fabulous choice for those who love modern and sleek interiors. Created by the fabulous Lara Skinner, this decadent marble swirl design will completely transform any home.
The unique swirls and shades of this gold wall mural hypnotise our minds into feeling utterly calm and relaxed and the floor of the patterns will also create a sense of flow and energy throughout the home.
We recommend keeping the rest of the room as minimal as possible by opting for creamy walls and furniture. But do add some metallic décor to show a relationship between your stunning wall mural and the rest of the room.
Au-some Art Deco black and gold wallpaper
Mural in photo: Artistic Symmetry
If you were supposed to be alive in the 1920s or you simply love geometrics, then you will love this Art Deco Artistic Symmetry wall mural!
Although rose gold wallpaper has made a huge impression in interior design, yellow gold décor has always held a strong position in the home. And in recent years, we’ve seen a huge influx of metallic geometric décor flood into trendy homes. So rather than just opting for a stylish bronze geometric candle holder or a succulent centrepiece, why not adorn an entire wall with a geometric black and gold wallpaper?
The above room really shows living room gold décor at its best. The yellow tarnish of the sofa’s legs and the brass lamp are all subtle touches to mirror the warm tones in this opulent marble and gold geometric wallpaper.
Artistic designer gold wallpaper

Once seen as an indication of wealth, now gold interior design is accessible for all. You no longer need to take out a second mortgage to achieve this luxurious look! One of the easiest ways is to install a gold wallpaper such as this artistic Dancing Jellyfish wall mural.
A stunning mix of yellows and copper tones, this dark and moody sea life wall mural will completely transform any room into a relaxed, adult space. We imagine this fabulous wall décor with dim lighting and bursts of yellow colour through a choice of metallic décor. Although not a blue and gold wallpaper, there are some hints of inky blue and black tones which mix beautifully with the contrasting bright yellow colours from the jellyfish.
Show-stopping bedroom wallpapers
Mural in photo: Pink and Gold Swirl
Having gold wallpaper in the bedroom is a great way to make a statement in this all-important room. Whether you want to update your guest bedroom to wow your visiting family and friends or simply want to treat yourself in this well-used area.
A great choice for a statement bedroom is a gold-toned design such as this Pink and Gold Swirl wallpaper. As well as flashes of gold shades, there are hints of lilac and blue as well as pink which make this marble effect wallpaper fun to play with. Choose accessories in a mix of these tones rather than just pink to bring all of the elements of this design into the rest of the room.
Magical gold dust walls for your child’s bedroom
Mural in photo: Gold Glitter
Rather than going for unicorns and mermaids, why not install a gold glitter wallpaper in your child’s bedroom? Although this gold wallpaper is printed and has no glitter effect, the results are still just as impressive (and you don't need to hoover up lots of glittery bits all the time)!
The gold glitter background of this stunning child’s wallpaper means you are quite open to choosing a wide selection of décor to go with it. Whites, woods, yellows and greys are all fabulous choices to go with this trendy glitter wall mural.
Sought-after stylish wallpaper for the living room
Mural in photo: Rock Pool Beach
This stunning Rock Pool Beach wallpaper is certainly one of our most sought-after gold wallpapers. And when you see it in such a well-designed room as above, it's easy to understand why! Abundant in an array of colours and texture effects, this fabulous designer wallpaper has so much to offer to a room.
Just look at how well the deep turquoise tones of the couch bring out the ocean-blue shades in this marble effect wallpaper? How the quirky yellow gold lamp reflects those luxurious golden shades and even how the creamy white vases reflect the neutral tones in the design?
Gold abstract wall art
Mural in photo: Black Mist
If you love minimalism and a touch of art in your home, any work by designer Elisabeth Fredriksson is a high contender for you. This black gold wallpaper named Black Mist is a fabulous work of abstract art. From these steamy blacks and bronze tones, do you picture steam from an old train, dark mist on a rainy day or the smoke and flames of a roaring fire? That is the beauty of abstract art: you see what the work makes you feel.
Because of the strip of powdery tones, we recommend keeping décor away from this gorgeous feature wall so you don’t cover up the most focal point of the design. Choose a mix of white, black and gold décor items to bring out those smoky tones.
Pretty monochrome gold floral wallpapers
Mural in photo: Monochrome Blossom
Also new to our collection, this pretty Monochrome Blossom wallpaper has been a firm favourite amongst our customers.
This floral white and gold wallpaper looks fabulous on the wall in a master bedroom. Place this fantastic wall art behind the headboard of the bed and have a range of white furniture with gold furnishings throughout. Imagine white bedside cabinets with brass lamps on top, an ornate white dressing table and soft white duvet covers – gorgeous!
