Brass is Back!

Published: February 2nd, 2015

Stainless steel, brushed nickel and polished chrome have been a decorating staple for several years.  A change was long overdue. Well, brass is back and it’s been reinvented! The new brass is modern, warm and sophisticated.  Gleaming and polished, brass is a brilliant way to add color and flare to any style space. Mix it with those monochromatic grays that are so popular now and the brass seems to pop, providing a warm counterpoint.

Or mix brass with other metals.  Like an elegant Rolex in gold and stainless steel, watch how a brass satin finish adds a warm contrast to cooler metals.

Here are some brass accents we particularly like.  Glad to see an old friend make a comeback!
