Brass, Copper and Gold in the Kitchen

Brass, Copper and Gold in the Kitchen

May 18, 2012

All that glitters is not gold. Sometimes; it's brass or copper. And sometimes, it does more than just glitter. Sometimes, it warms...enchants...and delights (especially when used in the kitchen).

It's here, that rich metallics seem to really shine. Like luxurious baubles amid a sea of utilitarian tile, countertops and refrigerators, warm-hued metals emit a glow that's wholly unlike their silvery counterparts. In kitchens light or dark, black or white, these luminous metallics hold their own, adding comfort and light to spaces that are, by necessity, filled with cold, hard surfaces.

What do you think of this trend? Would you use brass, copper or gold in your own kitchen? Which do you prefer?
