Along with a few other 2018 home decor trends, adding brass and golden accents to interiors is definitely one of the rising stars of the year! The presence of metallic touches in home interiors has been prevalent for a few years already, but compared to the previous years, brass is becoming more on trend than copper and rose gold this year. This aged finish embellishes kitchens, bathrooms, and living rooms et cetera and shines with a subtle vintage glow. Here we gathered a few brass fixtures and accessories to show how this sophisticated metallic colour helps to bring warmth and definition to any room.

Traditionally, interior designs would try to adhere to the “one metallic finish rule”, meaning that it was preferred to have all the appliances and fixtures in the same space to be in the same finish. For example, if the kitchen faucet were in brushed nickel, having the cabinet knobs in satin nickel wouldn’t be a desirable match. However, designers have a new “golden rule” this year — going into a kitchen and seeing brushed brass accents is the trendiest thing.
Similar to the idea of kitchen fixtures, pendant lights accent any space with vintage personality and surprising warmth. Golden tone pendant lights look the best against soft light background, like those commonly found in Scandinavian interiors. For those who prefer modern decor, brass texture also goes very well with sputnik style designs.
Unlike pendant lights which set the overall tone for the entire room, wall lights are smaller, but they excel in perfecting the small details. If wall-mounted light fixtures aren’t appropriate for the space, choosing a hanging socket pendant light with a brass finish is a trendy alternative as well.
If you are new to incorporating golden tones into your home decor, installing fixtures and lights may be too much of a commitment to start with. In that case, brass-finish clocks, candle holders, storage pieces, mirrors et cetera are also fantastic golden tone accents for brass beginners.
