Decorating with Brass
BRASS IS BACK
In recent years, metallic finishes have come more into style for interior design, and believe it or not, brass is popular again as a home decorating choice.
The shiny, lacquered brass that was in favor a generation ago has been replaced by a gentler version of brass.
Today’s most popular brass finishes are soft with a bit of patina. Its warm sheen can make a room seem livelier and, at the same time, mellow and cozy.
The warm sheen of brass can make a space seem livelier.
Think about using brass for lamps and table legs.
WHERE TO USE BRASS
Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc, which makes it very strong, and it won’t rust! The actual color of brass is similar to gold, so brass used in non-metallic surfaces such as fabrics often looks the same as gold.
Think about using brass for:
Light fixtures and lamps
Picture and mirror frames
Plumbing fixtures and drawer handles
The backsplash for a bar, bookshelf or kitchen counter
Urns and vases
Trays and chargers
Even a brass bed!
HOW TO PAIR BRASS WITH OTHER COLORS
Brass pairs well with lots of colors, including cream, white, gray, brown, forest green, Indian red, and almost any shade of blue.
Brass even goes well with other metals, including copper, chrome, stainless steel and nickel.
