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 The shiny, lacquered brass that was in favor a generation ago has been replaced by a gentler version. This modern take is widely used in new construction and remodels as cabinet hardware, light fixtures and simple home decor accents.
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. It’s an earthy color that makes you feel serene and peaceful.
