Brass is Back

Yes, brass is back, and I’ve gone wild with it in a recent total house renovation.

Yes, brass is back, and I’ve gone wild with it in a recent total house renovation. 

I started with the client’s existing coffee table, which is a glass-top rectangle sporting antique brass legs with brass tassels….so retro regency. I then added gorgeous lamps to the neutral mix, neutral sisal wall-to-wall carpeting and then had all of the upholstery recovered in a variety of neutrals in solids and prints. Custom throw pillows come with pops of orange, turquoise and cream Ikat linen.

The lamps are the finishing touches and the jewelry, so to speak. I added a small coral and crystal console lamp, and then the bold, yet subtle brass lamps. 

I’ve seen brass jumping forward slowly, and now the design community (I for one) have embraced this style, but with some restraint.  I prefer a soft finish instead of an “in your face yellow” brass finish.  There’s something very timeless about it, too.

Some of the lamps and finishes I’ve selected are shown for your enjoyment!
