Browsing through shelter magazines, searching design blogs, and sourcing the latest introductions in interior design can bring trends to the surface. One trend that seems to be on the rise is BRASS! Yep, that's right, brass is back in a big way! The latest brass accents appear more refined, time-worn and antiqued. It's not the shiny, 80's brass that we all so quickly removed from our doors and bathroom walls in order to update our new homes. The new brass has character and a bit of vintage flair.
The new brass is best displayed as an accent metal, perfectly at ease among a mix of aged pewter, oil-rubbed bronze and the like. To integrate this trend in your own home, start with a few interesting accents. Perhaps a pharmacy style lamp on your office desk, or a few chunky, brass candlesticks on the mantle.
