So far brass was associated with the grandma’s house. It was not related with modern and trendy house but this has changed. Now brass is the new copper and making a big come back in 2018. It gives the interior a touch of luxury and warmth.
Use brass accessories like lamps, door knobs or planters for trendy look and to avoid high costs…We never know how long this trend can sustain. Brass accessories can be easily found in shops and thrift stores or you can fake this material by using a spray paint.
Brass lamps give the warm light and look gorgeous with rich colours as well as in neutral interiors.
Brass, like copper, ages and looks even more interesting with time thanks to oxidation process.
Another big thing of 2018 is the dark wood like walnut, rosewood or charred wood. I must admit that this trend really excites me because it has more character. In my designs I often use vintage and antique thrift stores and flea markets finds and I usually go for the dark timber.
In my previous Post-Interior Design Trends For 2018. Part I I mentioned that our homes in 2018 should not look like from catalogues. Personalisation, combining different materials, handmade and recycled materials are welcome in our rooms so let’s play with it.
These were trends for 2018 that I liked, but I must admit that I won’t give up on copper towards brass… And how about you? Are you following the trends or do you have your personal taste despite the fashion?
Thanks for reading and for all your feedback.
