A Corner of My Home: The Brass Band

Just a couple of years ago I thought I’d never let anything brass or gold into my home. Copper, maybe. Brass, never. Stainless steel, silver, pewter and chrome were my friends. But slowly, the warmer metals have been winning me over. I’m still sticking with accents that can easily be switched out (no faucets, door handles or towel bars, yet), and I like mixing all the different metals in the same room. Here, have a look!
