Incorporating gold and brass in your decor

One of the 2016 design trends is the comeback of metallics, especially brass and copper. For a while contemporary interiors did not have those last two, as they were categorized as “old-fashion” materials that will not blend well in modern interiors. Even more classic interiors were styled with silver and chrome to give a more modern feel. However, in today’s designs we see them more and more and its all in the details… Subtlety is key to incorporate those materials and colours to create a contemporary, glamour and sophisticated interior. Here are some the best designs with brass and gold, room by room.
