It's no secret, brass is the metal of the moment. I cannot get enough of it. Whether it's in decor- like trays and candle sticks, plumbing fixtures or lighting, it brings a perfect vintage touch to modern pieces. It has been popping up everywhere the past few years, and from some of my favorite manufacturers. As long as they keep making it, I'll keep using it!
My favorite way to use brass is in neutral settings- ones with lots of white or black (see the white marble post from last week). It becomes the color accent in the room and it really shines. Also, as a rule of thumb, try not to mix your metals. If you're going to go brass, go all brass. Only exception is that they aren't exactly making brass front refrigerators (yet... YET). I tend not to mind if the appliances are the exception. If you want a mix of metals for a more eclectic design, try pairing with matte black. That's a hot mix that I am 100% crushing on right now.
Below are some of my favorite brass beauties!
