Home Hardware Finish Trends. Deborah Laemmerhirt 203-994-4297. www.HomesInConnecticutForSale.com
Home Hardware Finishes. Decorative door hardware maker Schlage recently brought together a group of influential home decor and design opinion makers for a virtual debate focused on a hot topic: Whether brass finishes are outdated or making a comeback.
Agreeing that the metal finish – a longtime runner-up to stainless steel and gold – is on-trend for some home decor accents, the panel was equally divided on whether it has a permanent place in the home.
Here’s what the experts had to say about brass in home decor:
Mix It Up “Matte and brushed finish brass is the contemporary twist on garish and gaudy brass from the 1990s, and it’s paired best with reclaimed woods, vintage pieces as well as marble, stark white and mid-century decor,” said Modern Moment Design’s Jessica Wilcox.
Copper Is In “Brass doesn’t work for everyone’s home, and I think we’ll start to see copper and polished chrome accents creeping in across the country as the next big thing that people will experiment with in the home,” said Huffington Post contributor and designer Courtney Cachet.
Brushed Nickle Is Safer Bet “I’m seeing homeowners experiment with brass in small ways, like tile accents, but it is also a design feature that people are careful to weigh up before committing to it for the entire house because it’s a bold look,” said Kelly Mangum, interior designer at national builder JW Homes. “I think home decor enthusiasts said that finishes like brush nickel and bronze are still seen as the safest route for home decor accents.”
Neutral Sells “It’s great to see design-savvy homeowners embracing trends but when it comes to selling a home, it needs to be neutral enough to allow prospective buyers to imagine themselves adding their own touches,” said Next Generation Real Estate author Brendon DeSimone.
