My Picks: Brass Inspired Decor

My Picks: Brass Inspired Decor

It’s no secret that brass and gold are taking over the decorating world and leaving silver and brushed nickel in their dust.

I gathered some fun “brass inspired” pics for you to take a peek at today.


Look at this brass coffee table and sunburst wall art!  Of course, we could never let a toddler come near those spikes or the white sofa.  The whole place would be decimated in about fifteen minutes.

I love that bar carts have made a comeback.  I purchase mine at Target for $130!  This gorgeous one is from Arteriors, and another great source is Society Social which has the most adorable stuff.

Have you come across Cedar & Moss yet?  I love their simple, mid-century modern lighting, and I swear I have to triple-check the prices because they are so incredibly reasonable.

I mean, this table is so beautiful I think I just cried a little!

One of my favorite DIY projects EVER.  THIS is an IKEA shelf that was spray painted gold.  And it looks like a million bucks.  I’m just bursting I love this so much.

A great way to inject brass and gold into your home is to bring in a “sea urchin” or two.  I love the stateliness of this one, from Waiting on Martha:

I purchased my sea urchins from Target (of course – what do I NOT get from Target?!).  They’re over there on the left, hiding in the corner:

Oh, also – Dwell Studio has a terrific sea urchin as well that you can find on Wayfair.  I use them a lot in my projects.

    Lorri, I’m glad that it’s becoming accepted to like brass again! Haha I held off so long that somehow I now look trendy. To me brass and gold are just timeless, as long as it’s done well. Thanks for sharing these today!
