Decorating with Brass

From tabletop accessories, to lamps and side tables... brass is coming back to the limelight in 2011. I personally fell in love with brass accessories when we stayed last year at the Viceroy Hotel... that happened to be decorated by the talented Kelly Wearstler and after that I started seeing it more and more incorporated in all different decor styles. I love it because you can add some glamour to your decor without being too flashy....! On my wish list: a side petit table with some artsy brass base...! Like everything, moderation here is key... you want a touch of it!

Some great brass sources: Etsy for budget friendly accessories {look at this vintage candlesticks for $12}, 1stDibs for one of a kind piece {loove their tables..}, Jamali Garden, great for brass flower vases and napkin rings... or you can always go to Ebay!

Slide # 5: Jason Home & Garden {Porter Brass Lamp}, Jamali garden {Brass Bowl}, Kelly Wearstler {Hostess Dish} or ABCHome {Brass Asymmetrical Dish}not shown, Jason Home & Garden {Wall Flower Art}, Equine Shop {Brass Horshead Hood.. as seen {here} slide #3}, Pieces {Arched Table Lamp}.

What are your thoughts? Do you like accessorizing your decor with brass?

I love the idea of brass accents, and I scored some really great bookends (a set of pirate ships and a set of anchors) on Ebay so cheap! I also found a great brass and wood lamp at the Salvation Army that just needs a coat of paint before it goes in the bedroom. Great finds!

I love brass accents. It seems to add a richness to a room...

my love of brass accents might be influenced slightly by my OBSESSION with gold jewelry.
