The colour gold shares many of the attributes of yellow. It is a warm colour that can be bright and cheerful as well as sombre and traditional. While green has denoted the colour of money, gold is the colour of riches and extravagance. Bright gold catches the eye while darker subdued shades of gold lend richness and warmth. Add a golden glow to an earthy palette of orange, green, and brown. Or double the riches of a burgundy red or purple palette with glittery gold.
