From ancient coinage to plumbing to gilded walls, brass has a long and diverse history in design. It's most recently come back into fashion as a versatile accent color and material that complements all from the most traditional to most modern homes. It adds a warmth to an interior space that can't be achieved with the silvers, chromes and nickels that have dominated the metal finishes of the past four decades.

Contemporary brass finishes have a wide range from the un-laquered to brushed to shiny. The golden hue adds an elegant touch to any room.  Un-laquered brass develops a lovely patina as it ages, drawing out the warmth and character of each individual piece - especially in items like faucets and handles that see a lot of activity. With a vast number of choices of modern, traditional and organic forms available on the market, it is easy to find brass elements that fit into any style.

It also mixes very well with other metal finishes. When choosing a sheen or finish, always consider the room as a whole. Brass makes a big statement, so it's important to be conscious of how it's being used whether it's a large area or a small accent or hardware. 

Acero Bella

I am starting my master bath remodel today and have decided to join the brass bandwagon. These are the faucets that I have selected from Acero Bella.  We did some of the finishes in their beautiful new showroom and I just fell in love! Very contemporary for me so my thought is to mix them with old stones and built in elements! See below our picks for beautiful brass!

Nothing more important than a bathtub and it's decoration.

I love brass and when teamed with some rustic wood it looks fabulous. I absolutely love the first image with the butlers sink its beautiful. I have never seen a brass butlers sink and now I have I am thinking when I eventually build my house I would love this look.
