Design Trends: Brass Accents

Brass accents are becoming more and more prevalent as we progress through 2018. Brass is a surprisingly warm and subtle alternative to the expected steel accents. It is much more understated and luxurious than it used to be and that is why we are seeing it in more homes! The thing about brass is that when done in a tasteful manner, it never goes out of style. While people may not be as interested in covering their rooms in wall-to-wall brass, it is well-suited to accent pieces, fixtures, lights and other smaller decor items. Check out a few photos for design inspiration!

Quartz is non-porous as well, giving it the strength to resist staining.  Quartz also has the same durability as concrete and granite, but is quite a bit more forgiving so it won’t chip or crack as easily. It also works well with most styles! Take a look at a few examples below for more inspiration!

Summertime Home Decor Inspiration

Here comes the sun! Summer is here and it’s time to give your home a facelift.  Nothing beats summertime and we have all the updates on what’s trending for home decor for this upcoming season! Here are some great ideas to give your home a more summer time environment:

  1. Floral Patterns

Floral patterns are a big hit especially during the summer.  Whether it is a floral wallpaper, throw pillow or art, they all bring a sense of nature to a room. If you are considering this trendy look in your own home, now is the perfect time to make the decision!

2. Brass Accents

Pretty hood. If you're going to have something that screams hood, this is very pretty. I don't like the cabinet hardware.

Brass has an elegant look to it especially when the summer light hits it’s surface.  If you’re unsure about boarding the brass train, fixtures are a good way to tiptoe into the brass scene. They’re an easy and relatively inexpensive way to accessorize and update a room.

3. Animal Print

Nothing says hello summer like a living room spiced up with a few animal printed rugs or throw pillows. Try pairing multiple prints in the same color palette for a fun and cohesive look.

4.  Climbing Plants

Climbing plants have taken off in the year of 2018! Climbing plants may seem like more of an outdoor themed, but they bring a nice nature look inside. A winding, twisting plant indoors brings a warm environment in a person’s home as shown in this photo above.

5. Outdoor Lights
