It’s all about that brass. But don’t expect to see that 1980s super shine. Today’s trendy brass is more of an antique brass, which is being used in light fixtures, mirrors, frames, and even furniture trims.
Mandie Maguire, an interior designer and broker associate with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services in Park Ridge, Ill., says antique brass fixtures are especially trendy with white kitchen cabinets along with a light quartzite countertop.
The antique brass also pops against gray walls.
“Brass is definitely back, but it’s a new brass – muted, less harsh, and not polished,” says Barbara Nazzaro, owner of A Simply Staged Home in the Boston area.
