Brass has been foretasted as a big design trend for 2013. I love the metal finishes and brass happens to be one of my favorite!
What is brass? Brass is a mixture of zinc and copper (making it an alloy), and because the amounts of zinc and copper varies, brass comes in a bunch of different shades (with different properties). Brass is strong and corrosion-resistant, so it makes a great item that needs to last a long time. Brass can be inexpensive, too!
Brass has been around for a LONG time and was really big in the 70s! My family still owns brass furniture from back then. I recently picked up a really cute brass headboard for my client from a garage sale. Brass looks great in all kinds of room, whether it's accessories, furniture, or even a wall finish. It gives even the newest items vintage appeal. I love to see brass used in the most glamorous and colorful rooms!
Here's some stylish rooms that incorporate brass. I've even included a product board of some of my favorite furniture and accessories made with brass...
