Bring it Home :: Bold as Brass

June 25th, 2012

Though the process of making decor decisions can sometimes feel impossible even to the most seasoned designers, I (Cristina) must admit that my commitment phobia reveals itself most in the kitchen. In a room full of permanent fixtures (counters, cabinets, appliances) decision-making becomes even more difficult than usual. But thanks to these photos by Matthew Williams for Dwell, I think I’ve finally found a look that I know I’d never tire of: brass and walnut. Dark woods and polished brass are both finishes that I typically associate with antiques, but in this space they feel totally modern (and I’m guessing that stunning brass range hood has something to do with it). While we all wish we could have these countertops, turns out there are plenty of other ways to introduce this handsome color pairing into your own kitchen, after the jump!

  2. Brass is so overlooked and it is beautiful. Even as it patinas it looks great!

  5. love. they sell knock off tom dixon lights at a store called Menard’s here in Minnesota. We bought them for our kitchen but they just didn’t work there. I love the style though!

  6. I love this look! It’s pretty chic and minimal, but still has a good natural/rustic bit too!

  7. So simple…so beautiful. And I love the jars of grains.
