Brass In Pocket


Have you noticed that stores, magazines, and interior designers are training our eyes and taste to like brass and golden accessories? Well, I have. It is funny how trends work. I remember growing up and going to my aunt’s’ house or someone’s grandmother and almost  E V E R Y   lamp, hardware, and fixture were golden. Then, by the 1990s gold became tacky. Welcome, stainless steel! So, stainless steel, after almost 3 decades we are almost ready to say goodbye to you and reintroduce brass and gold into our lives. Bling, bling! I say “almost” because I don’t think that our taste is ready to turn everything in our eyesight into golden, in fact, I don’t think it will ever be (at least not mine). I like to mix it up, a little accent here and there. On my wishlist? Brass flatware. How about you, do you like it?
