All That Glitters…

I have to make a confession, I like brass. For years we all carried on that brass was outdated and old fashioned but now with new looks and finishes brass is hot again and I’m completely on board. I like nothing better than an all white kitchen with brass hardware and I’m leaning towards more contemporary hardware with longer and sleeker handles on drawers and maybe a square knob on cabinet doors. I also like brass on gray cabinetry, it looks very chic as well as brass light fixtures. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not talking about big brass chandeliers or anything but more like brass sconces with a darker finish or brass pendant lights over an island or sink. Join me today for a look at brass accents and how they can both perk up and warm up your home. Enjoy!!! (above image via)


Perfect, love everything about this kitchen. See how the brass just perks everything up? (via)


Another great kitchen, lots of clean white on simple shaker cabinets with open shelving and brass accents. (via)


You can see the sprinklings of gold or brass throughout this kitchen from the light fixtures and hardware to the brass banding on the hood over the stove. (via)


This is a beautiful bathroom, from the herringbone floor to the mirrors and sconces, and it’s all tied together with brass hardware on the cabinets. (via)


Industrial light fixtures in a brass finish are awesome, this gets you a lot of style and color up high. (via)


I really like how the brass looks on darker cabinetry like charcoal gray or black, notice the upper and lower cabinets are different colors. (via)


Another great look at brass hardware on cabinets painted a color. (via)


Another great kitchen with dark cabinets and tile with brass accents. I really want to do open shelves for storage the plates and glasses we use every day and love the brass brackets holding up the shelves, just not sure about glass shelves. (via)


I go back and forth with myself on these bin pulls for drawers, I like them but I always feel like they have a slight country feel to them and I really think I want something more contemporary feeling. (via)


These are the long brass pulls I’m talking about, love them on doors and drawers. (via)


One way to get a lot of bang for your buck is with lighting, here you have a modern take on a brass lantern, lots of great light for kitchen prep. (via)

Words are my own.
