Brass is Back

I love that the design world is embracing brass and stepping away from safe silvers and chrome these days. Actually, I have a nice mix of both finishes in my own home (don't be afraid to mix them!)
Personally, I love the warmth and sophistication of brass. And these two images show how, when paired with a more modern style, the look can be totally updated and completely irresistible. What do you think?

I'm loving brass too! I just bought an oversized architect's lamp in brass from Pottery Barn and am LOVING it my living room. So classy and modern! And I need that rug in the second pic!

Great post Crystal, I love that second floor lamp, it reminds me of New Orleans (where I am from) and I love how the brass picks up the accents on the chair's nailheads. So chic! I think what I love most about these brass lamps is that they aren't to bright and shiny, I like the patina on them. Tres chic! xox

I love brass and gold finishes. They look so warm. But I am fainting over that gorgeous white chair.

I too am a huge fan! I love brass with pink, especially...any watery pastel, grey and black. Diving photos!

I like an antiqued brass, but the shiny type from the '80's, I hope that never comes back!

I love brass.. So much that I don't think I even have a silver lamp haha.. Mixing it with other metals is almost mandatory. All brass would be too formal I think, or at least too matchy-matchy (for me anyways!)

thank you for commenting on my blog! i think it's cool when more established bloggers like you share the love — truly inspiring in and of itself.

i love the idea of mixing finishes to lend an organic feel to a space. the fabrics in these rooms are amazing too — that bedspread in the first, the rug in the second... absolutely gorgeous!

thank you again :)
