I've always preferred silver to gold, but within the last year or so I've taken a shine to brass.

Whether it's a bed, bar cart, or bookshelf, brass has character. It's a smart, less flashy sibling of gold, and a bit of tarnish can look good. It's dramatic against dark walls and refreshing against white. It fits easily with antiques and provides warmth in more modern settings. Finally, thanks to its copper content, brass can even have germicidal properties.
