‘Back to the reflection of the rare’
Interior has always been an interested way of expressing yourself. It’s a represent of who you are or what you want to be. If people visit your home, it’s the first thing they see. People do always value their interior and stuff, because in a developed country it’s normal to have a nice home, decorated the way you like.
When there was cute and cozy, there is now Brass (copper or bronze)! A material that makes your home fresh new, but also warm. Little accents, to give your home some new shine and sparkle. It can be used everywhere; kitchen, living room, bathroom or bedroom. It’s a standard for everything, but remember the slogan less is more. It’s a reflecting material, so it’s more beautiful when you use it in the details of an interior.
Fresh home explains it as: ‘Brass has the ability to look ludicrously luscious or tantalizingly tacky. A number of years back I was taken around a designer’s showroom in China who specialized in brass-ware; it looked tacky and clichéd. It’s important to inspect designs which are executed poorly, to determine what mistakes to avoid. When done right, brass looks classy, it’s timeless, and it’s also a trend which has been gathering steam over the past year. In 2014 we foresee a rise in the popularity of brass, particularly in the kitchen, bold brass bathtubs (as per the image below), lamp stands and other ornamental pieces.’
So short said, it’s a mix of a classy and trend which is easy to combine. With that mind brass is taking over. Again. Again, because in the 70’s brass was also a trend in the interiors of people. When normally trends are never coming back in interiors, brass is an exception. The reason of that is the easy way of putting it together, with different materials or colors. When you use brass, you don’t have to be afraid to use just one sort of material, because it can handle a lot of different things. You just have to dare and try it!
And that’s why I think it works in 2014 or even in the future, because of its timeless feeling. The feeling of coming home, but when you want to try some new color or material in your home, you can put it all together and it looks probably even better.
