Well after a long hiatus, grab the brass and gold as these finishes are back on the merry-go-round of residential interiors. Brass detailing on furniture, other types of brass hardware are making a strong sparkling comeback. Now many of you may think brass or gold was never out of fashion. But looking back just about a dozen or so years, polished and satin chrome probably made their first entrée into our homes with the beginning of stainless appliances. Stainless refrigerators and dishwashers made way for more silver and chrome finishes than gold on all types of residential interior appointments.

Light fixtures, or even bathroom fittings in brass or gold give chandeliers, lamps, sconces, and kitchen or bathroom hardware a more updated and modern look to your home instantly. I love the silver and chrome finishes in many settings, but now I love using   lots of  brass and gold. It’s the renewing of our love of antiques and a whole new sense of comfort as brass and gold come out and is dusted off.

It’s funny just as we start to think about our seasons changing from summer to fall and winter- cozy sweaters, meals and football, brass and gold can remind us of our mothers and grandmothers homes. But today we can embrace nostalgia yet create our own sense of style with its comeback.

Brass candlesticks are a great way to celebrate their rejuvenation into our home’s interior. New side tables, bookshelves and coffee tables are all offering brass or gold base finishes!

Accessorizing your home with these items can be fun and certainly makes you feel good about repurposing and recycling things you already may own.

Worthington Interior Design loves to work with clients making your home all about you. We make your vision come to life.

So if you think you may have an old brass piece or two hanging around and you want to know how to use it among your home interiors, we at Worthington Interior Design would love to help you.
