If you live long enough, you will see trends come and go and come back again.
Brass is one of those trends.
I should have seen this coming!
It started with jewelry. We wore yellow gold, then began wearing white gold, then back to yellow gold again. My jewelry box is a mix of both!
It's like that with brass.
But I'm not talking about the polished, shiny brass from the 80's.
I'm talking about unlacquered, natural and organic brass with its warm, gold finish.
I'm in love!
I'm in love with the look but afraid of commitment.
After all, I did systematically eliminate that shiny 80's brass in our old home, replacing it with chrome. I don't want to do that again!
So what does one do in my shoes? Jump on the brass wagon? Or choose clean, simple polished chrome or nickel, hoping that I won't regret it in a year or two!
I would love to have unlacquered brass in our master bathroom...
...as well as the kitchen.
The question is, what about the rest of the hardware, like door knobs? Cabinet hardware?
Hinges? Towel bars etc?
I'm afraid of commitment!
Brooke Giannetti wasn't afraid of commitment when she chose brass for their new home, which by the way, is a-mazing! You can see it in the latest issue of Veranda.
As amazing as their bathroom is, would it still be as breathtaking if the plumbing fixtures were chrome?
Luckily, I don't have to make a decision tomorrow, but am definitely up late pinning images these days of unlacquered brass.
Please weigh in, brass or chrome?
