Wallpaper? Eh? or OMG outdated! or maybe making a comeback...

I have wallpaper on one wall in my west-facing living room that is imitates 4" sq. tiles. It was old when I bought the house in 1985. The 4x4s are a glorious gold that imitate being sponge painted in tan to dark brown. I want to paint the walls the closest thing to shiny gold that I can find. First, opinions of all this so far? (I have thick skin, so be honest.) Second, where do I find golden paint that won't blow the budget? I really want the room to glisten when the sun shines in.
