Happy Tuesday my friends! Â I know it’s already the 2nd day into the week, but I hope you had a fun + fabulousÂ weekend.
I’m working on a slew of client projects, but took a bit of time for myself this weekend to hunt down an old, salvaged doorÂ for a DIY project that I have in the works for my home. Â After church Sunday morning, I went to a favorite local “junk” shop which has the best old treasures and found just what I was searching for. Â Head over to my Instagram feed to check out this hidden treasure in Upstate NY!
In the meantime, I’ve been busy with a few new articles for Better Homes and Gardens. Â My latest is on BRASS IN THE BATHROOM…
Gone are the days of the late 80s, early 90s opulent bathrooms withÂ the
cheap-lookingÂ inexpensive gold (brass-plated to be exact) fixtures. Faucets with swan wings eerily come to mind. Â Who thought those lookedÂ good?
I didn’t think anyone would ever be accepting of brass again, butÂ it’s back and has been given new life and a whole new look – even one I’d be accepting of.
From vintage to modern, brass in the bathroom can give a beautiful, warm, regal (but not in an ostentatiousÂ way) lookÂ that makes a bold statement.
Small, but over-the-top gorgeous. Â Kristin of The Hunted Interior hit it out of the ballpark with this bathroom. Â Modern brass fixtures compliment the class black + white floor and traditional vanity + toilet. The brass fixtures have an almost rose hue to themÂ which givesÂ this bathroom such a warm aesthetic.
Same fixtures, different space. Â Kristin of Bliss at Home paired modern brass with clean lines + minimalist marble. Â Another gorgeous black & white bathroom, this space evokes a cosmopolitan aesthetic!
Kate of Centsational Girl created this gorgeous bathroom and used brass in a minimalist way by pairing it with other complimentary finishes. Â The brass seen in the mirror and on the cabinet hardware don’t overwhelm the traditional space, yet enhance the other finishes and overall look.
The cabinet hardware is so chic with the simple ring pull and diamond backplate, while the bamboo-style mirror is a beautiful layer on the geometric green wallpaper.
This bathroom is so attractive because of the contrast and the play on modern-versus-traditional. Â To offset the more detailed brass mirror and hardware, Kate chose simple, minimal brass accessories which continues the eclectic feel.
What a space. Â Talk about contrast! From the ultra modern lines of the sink paired with the geometric floor versus the ornate traditional mirror, this bathroom by Jenny Komenda is so chic + sophisticated. Again, brass is used in an understated, non-dominating way, and is paired with other finishes to create a gorgeous space.
