When I still lived at home with my father and step-mother (she was NOT the wicked kind) we had golden gold walls in our livingroom: it is long gone; sorry no pictures, but it was the most glorious, everyday livable colour that I have ever had surround me on the four walls. This type of gold colour goes with everything: every colour of wood goes with it, from ebony black to shabby chic white. It's a great colour to use as backup for pictures whether black and white photos or serious, major paintings. It goes with both Modern furniture and accessories and with the more Traditional.
Give luminous Gold serious thought when you next decide that your walls need just a little pick-me-up of Colour!
