Brass is coming back in a big way in 2015! Here is how to incorporate this craze into your home.

Trends this year have been all about bringing vintage charm back into the kitchen, and we love seeing the comeback of a classic accent: brass. A metallic rich in kitchen history, it’s hard to believe brass hasn’t made a major comeback already!

While this space has blended these trends successfully, take care to ensure there’s a balance between industrial touches and contemporary accessories when incorporating brass into your home. The vintage status of brass can tip into unpolished territory if additional aesthetics are a little too old-fashioned!
