A Dash of Brass
January 25, 2014
I thought I’d make my point by posting this the day after I suggested brass if you’re thinking about going grey…
The timelessness of a white kitchen is not lost on me, it’s something that will NEVER feels dated, or a relic of a time-capsule from days (or years ) gone by. Brass on the other hand has had its heyday and has been out of favor for some time.. but “it’s back”! The younger set who didn’t live through the last go around have discovered the warmth and beauty of brass and other warm finish metals are showing up everywhere. Show here with White and Grey, the brass is the perfect complement to the cool crisp aesthetic these kitchens possess. And, yeah… sure, brass could fall out of fashion again too, but remember it’s a lot easier and cheaper to change than countertops, cabinets and other major kitchen items.
Fearful of taking the plunge but love the look? Add some accessories to your countertops or swap out a light fixture to update your kitchens look. Mixed metals is OK, trust me. Gone are the days of matching dining room sets, and matching metals… you just have to do it in a way that feels thought out, designed.
I’ll be honest it took me a while to get on this train. I have disliked brass for many, many years… but to be honest now that the market is so oversaturated with nickel, pewter, stainless and chrome a dash of brass really feels special.
