Black and Gold classroom Decor

A black and gold classroom theme is a very classy and clean theme that is suitable for older students. This post is a growing listing of luxurious black and gold classroom decor ideas that are perfect for a middle school or elementary classroom. The gold borders and lettering can be either glittery or matte. White borders can be layered in with gold or black borders as part of your bulletin board. You should note that you do not want to put gold letters on a white background because they will not stand out as well as they would on a black background. Scroll down to see black and gold classroom printables.

There are different patterns that you’ll see in black and gold like polka dots, zigzags, geometric patterns, and marble patterns. My favorite is the marble, and you’ll see some examples in the pictures way below. There’s just something about black and gold marbling that just appeals to me.

Look who got caught reading bulletin board in black and gold with googly eyes (#ad).

You can use some gold spray paint (#ad) to DIY your classroom storage bins to match this theme.

You can easily make a black and gold bulletin board like this for displaying student work. Use a black and white striped paper roll for the background, gold dotted scalloped border trims and black and white srtiped border trims, and colorful paper fans.

Use gold accents against black and white shelves. The golden book bins (#ad) are not only aesthetically pleasing, but functional too.

This classroom has bulletin board papers that are either black or gold with some garlands that are white, black, and gold.
