Choose your brass tone
There are different tones and styles of brass to choose from, satin brass gives a polished shiny finish and can look great in a contemporary space. Whilst antique brass finishes are darker with a more brushed textured look which will give a vintage or industrial room it’s pièce de résistance.
Introducing brass finishes to your home can sometimes feel quite daunting so start small and ease yourself into the new look. Add a few plant pots, candle holders and kitchen utensils around the home to gradually build up the brass look. Then choose larger pieces such as brass legged coffee tables. Brass based table lamps or trendy drinks trolleys with brass piped edges. Vintage finds in brass will add character and personality. Mingle on shelves with other eclectic pieces. It’s all about gradually introducing the colour to ease yourself into the new interior look. Once you start to get the brass feel and look flowing into your home. Then start to add more substantial pieces such as chandeliers and ceiling pendants.
Brass can mingle with many colour schemes and trends
The great thing about this colour and finish is how versatile it can be in the home. As expected, brass looks great against neutral tones such as whites, creams and beige. But this finish will work wonders next to a whole host of other colour themes. Take greenery or jungalow for instance, this luscious and vibrant trend looks great paired with an antique brass finish, green can sometimes feel a bit cool and airy, so it’s nice to warm the trend up by adding a hint of brass. Blush pink and grey is a trend that seems to be staying put for a while, add brass tones and the look instantly become more grown up and sophisticated. Navy blues and indigo already have a regal feel but add brass trimmings and accessories and you’ll instantly give your home a look that’s fit for the queen.
