When sprucing up your home, you might want to use brass in modern décor, one of this year’s trends that will absolutely turn your humble abode into a sleek, chic, timeless and elegant space. Brass’ innate elegance can easily transform a rather subdued or minimalist space, and can make your home look more interesting without overwhelming your senses. Needless to say, the comeback of brass in home décor is met with much flair and praises by designers and home owners alike.
While usually favoured by those who love classics, Victorian/Edwardian and traditional design styles, brass décor can be easily integrated into a contemporary home design. This no-fuss modern décor easily complements modern furniture, and can even sometimes, give a contrasting effect to your interior design without cramping your style. If you’re scared to experiment adding antique brass to your home, whether in structural elements, hardware or embellishments, fear not because this trend is surely here to stay.
Accessorizing with brass
"Try brass in a lamp, candlesticks, a mirror, frames or accessories. The color and finish compliments teals, purples and oranges, and pops against warm whites. The warm patina of vintage brass is a great way to bring something metallic into a space,” says AFP Interiors designer April Force Pardoe.
Designers today are falling in love all over again with antique brass because of its timeless appeal. Here are some brass modern decors that you can add to your home:
