Top brass: the metal
interior designers are falling for
An alloy of copper and zinc, brass is
once again at the forefront of home decorating trends. Today’s brass, however, is
muted and offers a welcome respite from
the flashier rose gold and copper that
dominated the design world in years past.
Brass goes well with almost any colour,
from sombre blues and burgundies to
pale neutrals like cream and blush.
Increasingly, retailers are offering an assortment of brass items to their customers. From cabinet hardware and faucets

to floor lamps and chandeliers, there’s
no shortage of options if you want to
bring brass into your home. If you’re in
the market for a new bedframe, consider one made of this metal.
To prevent your brass from looking
dated, choose angular, modern pieces
that are brushed to a dull sheen instead
of the overpowering shine that was
once popular. Keep your pieces looking
new by regularly cleaning them with
ketchup, tomato juice or a simple solution of lemon and salt.
