This sweet vignette of a bathroom makes me happy.   I’m ready for this rain to stop and the sun to come out!

Beautiful Brass

source

Brass finishes are a huge trend right now and I’m so glad.  Most of the time I absolutely prefer a brass finish over any finish on hardware, lighting, plumbing and furniture.  I especially love an antique brass finish.  However, I would be a little hesitant to use brass hardware and plumbing in my own home (as if I have a choice in my apartment!).  I think I’m scared that it’s too trendy and I’ll get sick of it after a while.  But if you think about it, replacing the knobs and pulls in a kitchen or bathroom is really not that big of a deal.  My kitchen and bathroom cabinets don’t even have hardware, otherwise I might consider ordering some of these gorgeous brass pulls from Restoration Hardware:

Gilmore Pull

Utility Latch

Or this pretty antique brass window hardware

And now some pictures that might inspire you to add some antique Brass to your life…
