Brass & Gold | Warm Metal Home Decor Redux

Remember this post from April 2013? Well warm metals have been making an even stronger comeback lately.

So about 10 months ago, we talked about how brass and gold home decor was becoming popular again. Well, since that post, this movement has certainly become a major trend as nearly every major home decor retailer we frequent has really upped their stock of merchandise with gold or brass pieces or using them as an accent.

Here’s a smattering of examples from several different retailers:

What are your thoughts this year on gold and brass? For us, we still hold to the same philosophy we had last year: used in small doses as accent pieces it can really “warm” a room up. If you want to make a big, stylish impact, consider a floor lamp or a large hanging chandelier or pendant in a warm metal, especially if you have grey walls or are using blue or green as a main color in space.
