Unlaquered Brass

It's no lie... I am in love with unlaqured brass.  I'm sure you have seen it popping up all over Pinterest and in your favorite shelter magazines.  If you not a fan, I'm about to make you a believer.  Not only does it ooze charm and sophistication, it is downright handsome in just about any space.  I do believe when you mix metals, it creates a nice warmth to your home and gives it a 'created over time' feel.  There's nothing worse than 'matchy-matchy', so think outside the box and be open to adding some new elements.

First up is Brooke's gorgeous new home in Ojai.  If you haven't seen it, well you're in for a real treat!  She just posted this photo of the master bath and my jaw dropped.  Heavenly, a complete understatement!

Dying over her new Lacanche range with brass that just got installed!  Seriously, Brooke, I'm coming to visit and will sleep next to your range or in your tub if I have to

Moving on... here are more great inspiration images of unlaquered brass to drool over.

Even the smallest touch, like these bathroom faucets, make a huge impact.

Door hardware is another great place to add it...

And, you know how much I adore brass lighting.  I have this light in my office and also love it in Holly's back entry as shown here.
