Words by Megan McDonough, The Washington Post
Bored with the same old stainless-steel and chrome fixtures? Brass can add a splash of colour and luxury and help modernise an outdated kitchen.
“The resurgence of brass in home design is bringing a new level of warmth back to kitchens,” says kitchen designer Jennifer Howard of JWH Design & Cabinetry.
The soft, rich and sleek material can provide a subtle contrast of color with kitchen appliances, and it especially shines in all-white and neutral surroundings. “Mixing in a touch of brass is a great way to add visual interest while offsetting the cooler tones of stainless, whites and grays,” Howard adds.
Here are Howard’s top brass picks:
Amber agate tray and Marble and brass cheese board
The East Linear pull-out spray kitchen faucet in satin brass, left, and the Royden single-hole pull-down kitchen faucet in polished brass
Pigeon & Poodle Winsford antique brass coaster set
Chilewich Dahlia coasters in brass
Lotus four-piece cheese knife set, left, and Marble and brass cheese knives
Kaikado canister 400G long, left, and Tenfold New York brass container, cylindrical
