I’m giggling to myself about this title because I used to work at a tiny little kitchen design studio for about a year during college – I had forgotten about it until I decided to do a post about brass hardware in kitchens, as this place was called Kitchens & Brass. So, in homage to that short time in that little studio, I’ve titled this post “Kitchens & Brass.”
Anyway, it’s taken me a while to warm up to the resurgence of brass, but now that I’ve seen it in modern settings, I’m loving it. Brass is back, but in a VERY different way… with subtler tones and sleek modern lines. I stumbled across the above photo while flipping through my dwell magazine the other day, I can’t get enough of it. Brass with white and natural wood… the brass warms up this kitchen in a way that polished chrome or stainless steel couldn’t do. And it adds a little touch of formality, but in a non-stuffy way.
