Brass is having a moment right now and I am FEELING IT--which is funny because I remember making fun of my mom when she chose brass faucets for our house back in the 90s. I'm admittedly still not a huge fan of brass in faucet form, so I guess old habits die hard, but everything else that's available in this finish? Yes. Put it everywhere.
The nice thing about metallics in general is the hint of glamor they add to a room. Even if your house isn't fancy--mine certainly isn't--having a little twinkle can really elevate a room and make it feel finished. Brass in particular brings some warmth, too, so it's a good option if you think a space is looking kind of stark. If I had to pick the most common places to find it I'd still say light fixtures and mirrors, since those are pretty classic choices, but it's starting to pop up in just about every decor group. I actually had a lot to narrow down for this post, so think of this as a brassy appetizer instead of the full menu.
Let's take a peek at some metal in action, since we're already drooling and everything:

Gorgeous, no? Even though there's a ton of white in there--the walls, bedding, trim, window shades--the brass keeps it from seeming too blah. Of course the wood dresser helps, too, but without the brass accents it wouldn't feel as welcoming. I think I'll move right in! I'm sure whoever lives there now won't mind an extra person. I'm tidy.
