We had a great fall weekend full of pumpkins (and pumpkin ice cream), hiking, flag football, apple cider and sewing.
My husband pointed out an article in this weekend’s WSJ Going for the Brass and said I was ahead of the Journal because I’ve been saying that for months. It’s no secret in the design world that brass is back! The article of course mentions Kelly Wearstler, Celerie Kemble and Jonathan Adler as leading designers using brass in their designs and product lines. I agree with Adler in that silver-tone metals are “cool and high-tech” while “brass equals warmth, English clubiness, Moroccan craft and Italian mid-century fantasy…brass has a more colorful past.” It also pairs nice against natural woods and leather. I think Nate Burkus could also make the list as an expert in mixing brass with other materials in a design.

The Journal went on to highlight their top brass choices. And while they are gorgeous, I thought I would feature some more “attainable” options.

This doesn’t begin to even scratch the surface for my love of brass! In a future post, I will cover finding vintage brass treasures because the patina of older pieces adds so much texture to a room.
In the meantime check out my Brass board on Pinterest. After reading the article this weekend, I went through my boards and found plenty to create a board with over 350 brass-ilicious pictures and products to inspire you.
See you tomorrow for my update on Kevin’s room!!!! Also, check out today’s One Room Challenge updates over at Calling It Home.
