Design: Brass + Beige

Hi lovely MBG readers! Amanda here today, with a look into two of this year's home decor trends - brass and beige. As we know that emerald green has made its statement in home decor, the beige trend predicted by Elle Decor was a surprise as beige can be bland and boring. But it is in for the Spring and far from boring when paired with bolder hues (perfect with emerald!) and mixed with textures.

The resurgence of brass metal on the other hand is the hot finish for lighting fixtures, furniture and hardware. But it's not the brass we hated. Whether it's polished, antiqued, or hammered, brass is back more refined and with a different kind of finish.

brass is making such a great comeback! i've always been a fan and probably always will be even when people think it's tacky again!


Kristen said...

Brass makes me so happy as of late. Def hoping on this trend.

I agree I think the brass problem was the overly shining yellow/orange brass that we all hated. I love the matte brass we see now. It's great. said...

Love this combo! Beautiful!!

love the mix of those colors- brass and beige really do give such a nice neutral but rustic statement look if that makes any sense. I love the room with that big window the chairs are lovely! xx. gigi. food and beauty blogger @

Oh that desk haunts my dreams...why does it have to be so expensive?! And I am obsessed with anything brass, I don't think I will ever get tired of it! Great picks!

That second photo is stunning. I love the statue. It's my dream to have something like that in my house when I own one. And those stairs!

I'm such a fan of neutral interiors and brass is the perfect complement. We are redoing an old beach house right now and are using lots of both. Thanks for the inspiration!!

Brass & beige, I think is a pretty versatile combination that I find works great with black and dark tones as well as with pastels and whites...isn't it?
