There was a time in the not so distant past, that I associated all things brass with an antiquated 80's aesthetic (complete with oppressive wood paneling and floral sofas).
However, over the past few years, not only has brass enjoyed a sort of renaissance, but I have also made a complete u-turn and fallen head over heels for the warm metal - particularly the brushed variety.
Brass accents have the ability to warm up even the most arctic rooms, and stand out against rich dark shades. What more could one ask for?
There is something so grown up and sophisticated about the brass staircase above, and I just couldn't imagine it making the same impact if it were, for example, made of stainless steel.
Here are more of my favourite rooms, touched by brass.
Pssst...there will be no post next week as I'm off on a weekend jolly to Copenhagen - but do follow me on instagram @designgratis
