Trends in fashion, gadgets, automotive, and even home interiors come and go. Brass items from the 70s, however, are making a comeback in the interior design department, supported by professional designers and retailers. Local interior designer Maureen Stevens shares her insights on the brass trend as she relates the changes she did in her own home to TWC News. She refers to brass as the “metal of the moment” because it can enhance the overall visual appeal of a room. It provides elegance, luxury, and sophistication to a living space.
Qualities of brass
Brass is a metal alloy composed mainly of copper and zinc, and greatly resembles gold in appearance (metallic yellow). This may be one of the reasons why the metal is used to turn an otherwise simple home to an elegant one. Some of the common uses of brass are for musical instruments, utensils, and ornaments.
