Brass is Back
Brass is popular again as a home decorating choice.
Add warmth to your décor with the new look of brass.
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 The shiny, lacquered brass that was in favor a generation ago has been replaced by a gentler version of the classic metal.
Today’s most popular 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. Just a few years ago we shunned the use of this color, however it’s making a comeback! The modern take on the old fashioned brass has become more and more popular over the last few years and we are loving it.

It’s a showy addition that will bring warmth to your home environment.
