It's November and we are officially in the thick of the holiday season, which means it's time to get the house ready to party! Adding a little brass tone to your house is one of the quickest ways to accessorize your house with a festive spirit. Switching out knobs, pulls, and fixtures with those featuring aged brass tones will bring a feeling of rich, warm, inviting depth to even the most minimalist modern of spaces. And, nothing says family like a warm inviting interior. Forget the bright, loud, brass of the 80's, these brass tones are anything but tacky.
I love an antique French daybed in, well, any room, but when paired with the brass globe chandelier, the room is elevated to pure holiday-ready chic.
From the dining room and kitchen, to the living room, bathroom and bedroom, there's a place for brass tones. These tones are the jewelry of the home and pop against saturated walls, whitewashed interiors, and graphic wallpapers alike.
If swapping out fixtures is not in the budget or you run out of time before the turkey is on the table, brass accessories such as vessels and candlestick holders are the perfect way to add a little holiday tinsel.
Here are some tried and true resources to nail your brass tone holiday decor.
- For lighting: Arteriors is a go to for inventive of the moment lighting - the brass polished Liberty Pendant is one of my favorites and, with its perforated pin-holes would cast an amazing holiday lighting in any room. West Elm also offers affordable chic lighting options - the Abacus Hammered Metal table lamp in antique brass would immediately transform any sideboard into a holiday-worthy cocktail bar.
- For accessories: The Goodwill and other thrift stores are a mecca for finding brass candlesticks, vessels and objects reminiscent of the 70s. For those in a time crunch, West Elm and CB2 also offer a reasonably priced selection of brass goods. A generous row of CB2's Bubble Sphere in copper on the holiday table would be a glamorous alternative to a holiday table runner.
- For faucets and fixtures: Waterworks offers both classic and sleek modern options in brass.
