10 Ways to Add Brushed Brass Into Your Home

We’ve all noticed it. In the home decor stores, on our Pinterest feeds, in our best friend’s newly remodeled kitchen, there is a significant change. Somehow, very slowly, all the shiny copper decor that was once so popular is being replaced by brushed brass. Now usually, when we hear the word “brass”, we think of all those ugly shiny builder grade fixtures in a newly bought home and we wonder, why trade our copper for that? There are a few reasons. Brushed brass is not shiny builder grade brass. Brushed brass has a softer look than copper. Brushed brass will also match more styles than copper. And the changing of trends is inevitable. So before you go sobbing over your copper accessories, check out these 10 ways to add brushed brass into your home and let yourself be converted.
