My Home to Yours: Gold and Brass

TREND: Gold and Brass

About four years ago, I wanted nothing to do with gold or brass. Nothing. I’m pretty sure I considered gold to be the antithesis of decorating in the 21st centtury. Fast forward to today, and honestly, I can’t get enough. From candlesticks to vases to flatware, there is a touch of brass and gold in every room of my house. Even when it comes to fashion, I’ve found myself drawn to gold accessories rather than my usual silver.

I’m not sure how long this enthusiasm for gold will last, but while it’s here I’m certainly enjoying it. As you can see from the collection of photos from my house, there is no such thing as enough. Over the past year, though, I’ve learned that some folks still haven’t developed an appreciation for gold / brass. Today, I thought I would try to convince you of the appeal of these magical metals.

Let me explain my love for gold and brass. First, they go so well with so many (if not all) design styles. Be it traditional, modern, or eclectic, gold always works. Take a close look at your favorite design magazines. I’m sure you’ll see gold pop up. Secondly, over the past year (along with my love for gold), I’ve developed a preference for more modern, clean, and simplified design. Incorporating gold makes modern style a little warmer and richer. It has a fabulous way of adding character, depth, and personality. Plus, despite it’s current popularity, gold and brass are timeless. Their trendiness may come and go, but they are classic in the best sense of the word.

Have I convinced you yet? If not, it’s okay. The great part about decorating is if you prefer silver, oil-rubbed bronze, or copper when styling your space, then go for it. However, if you are looking for some unique gold or brass pieces to add a little sparkle to your space, these are a few of my favorites.

As always, happy decorating, friends!

  1. I felt the same way few years ago, and like you, i I can’t get enough. I think this is influenced largely by the return of the mid-century modern style and art deco influence with the remake of the Great Gatsby. I just blogged about the mid-century modern look.

  7. Hey this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors
    or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog
    soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
