When is Brass Not So Brassy?

Today’s hottest metal is brass, but not the super-shiny brass that was the star of the 80’s. This time around the gold-colored metal is more understated and luxurious in a satin finish that is halfway between brushed and polished. We think it’s beautiful, but we’re still recommending restraint when adding it to your home. It’s more like jewelry than a complete ensemble!

Dress your doors and drawers with satin brass. A little brass can add soft warmth and contemporary glamour.  We prefer simple designs such as these knobs, pulls and levers. Try hinges, too!
