Metallics are having a moment in interiors. From solid metal furniture and accessories to metallic finishes on wallpapers and textiles, it’s never been easier to add a luxe look to your home.
But while the copper trend has reigned for the last few years, a new metal has taken over for 2017. Brass is the hottest metallic of the season.
Brass is back
We’re seeing brass everywhere this year, in table legs, light fittings, clocks and more. Whether you prefer muted brushed brass or a shiny polished finish, it’s the metal of choice in our homes right now.
Reminiscent of 1920’s art deco glamour, the rich gold tones of brass are perfect for adding a touch of warmth and elegance to an interior. So how can you get the look in your own home?
While brass is back on the radar, the metal has been used in homes for centuries which means it can often look dated if paired with the wrong things. To avoid this, it’s best to use brass sparingly throughout a room and to mix it with clean lines and contemporary colours to keep the look fresh and modern.
Marble & brass: The perfect mix
One of most popular looks around right now combines brass with sleek white marble. The cool, clean surface of the marble works perfectly with the warm brass for a feeling of modern luxury. Inspired by retro designs, the look is often complemented by simple, geometric shapes and styled alongside dark blues and greys for an eye-catching contrast.
There are many ways to work this trend, whether marble or brass is combined in one furniture piece or blended throughout your decor. With a hint of marble here and a touch of brass there, you can create an effortlessly stylish and on-trend look.
