Brass and gold...

Brass and gold...
Watching a Sarah marathon (loving it!) and she's using brass and gold...and not apologizing! Imagine that. If it works in the context of the overall design, Sarah chooses it without over thinking it. It is usually a vintage metal, but sometimes, it's a pattern in fabric or wallpaper...her jumping off point. I love it.

I've always preferred warm colored metals in decorative items, so it's nice to see them come back into fashion. Sarah has often used brass/gold chandeliers, but I saw that she used a brass colored faucet in the Sarah 101
episode set in the small condo where green was the featured color.

Some of us never stopped using it.

In fact, I love antiqued brass mixed with soft silver/pewter tones. I have used this combo in my various homes over the years and will continue to do so. It's classic, contemporary and slightly old world all at the same time.

Glad to hear Sarah is using brass and gold. That will likely make it more trendy than it has been!

I've never stopped using brass/gold metals either altho did edit my brass collection and only kept some of the antique/vintage ones. I like brass and copper together and have also sometimes used brass, copper, and silver together. No reason IMO not to use various metals together.

Forgot to mention that a lot of my jewelry is mixed metals!

Agree with all of the above!
