Rubbed brass is the new oil rubbed bronze!


This season brass is everywhere.  And it still scares the heck out of people. Seriously…..people are still ripping it out of their houses like it’s mold.  I really can’t say that I blame them either, because that shiny golden color, along with the shapes and styles of the 80s just screams OUTDATED.  But the new, warmer looking, rubbed and aged versions of this blast from the past is showing up in high end homes, magazines, and decor stores around the country.  It brings a much warmer feel to rooms, than the old standard – nickel.  Pair it with any color of the rainbow, try it with wood, or glass.  You can’t go wrong with this metal.

These new tones, along with more modern shapes and styles mean this old friend might be back to stay for a while.  Now, I’m not quite ready to rip out all my oil rubbed bronze hardware and replace it yet, but it’ll definitely be popping up in some of my furniture re-dos.  For sure!
