I’ll be honest, I was never a big fan of the use of brass in interiors, much preferring the sleekness of chrome finishes. In fact I always found the shininess of brass to be a dated and dare I say it a tacky metal. 😳
But lately I’m beginning to develop a little crush on this shiny alloy. Which is probably just as well as metals such as brass, copper or bronze are experiencing somewhat of a resurgence and (thankfully) a tasteful rebirth since the 1980’s brass that I so unfavourably remember!
It seems the days of that shiny tacky metal are long gone, replaced with a sophisticated glam that enhance todays interiors.

I must say I do love these hammered copper pendants lights from Dunlin.
Aren’t these door handles from Alessia Garibaldi just simply stunning!

So tell me, are you leaning towards the elegant charm of brass, copper and bronze or do you still prefer the coolness of chrome?
