Want to give your home a modern, fresh update?  Get on board with brass!

I know, I know — brass is usually so shiny and cheap-looking and not very awesome.  But recently I’ve been noticing a more modern brass.  This brass has a matte finish, a darker patina, looks entirely unexpected and completely luxurious.

I fell in luuuurrrve with the modern brass in this kitchen.  The dark gray cabinets pair perfectly with the brass hardware.  The result is sophisticated and rich without looking like every other kitchen you see.  It’s just a little detail, but it makes a huge difference.

So, my current life plan: buy a house, renovate the kitchen, get some awesome grey cabinets and brass hardware, be very happy. :)
