Art of Brass: Five ways to get the look


by Milly

Gleaming, warm and tactile, brass is the hottest interior look right now. Whether you accessorise your mantel with key brass pieces or choose an abstract art print made up of brass hues, this look will add a touch of class to your home.

1. Accessorise Bright

Featuring rare lithograph from the Galerie Mourlot as seen in Homes & Gardens

An elegant, pared back combination of black and brass creates an inviting corner for a study. An angular lamp, chosen to echo the lines of the furniture, teamed with a monochrome print adds the perfect finishing touch.

2. Keep it fresh

Rorschach, 1984 (Special Edition) – Andy Warhol

Teaming metallics with a neutral colour palette creates a thoroughly modern look. Try a large brass abstract in a natural wooden frame for an instant interior facelift.

3. Opt for metallic framing

With just the smallest of brass detailing you can instantly transform a wall. If you’re framing your print, explore our selection of Gold Frames and pick a Distressed Bronze or Gold Satin Finish to add the perfect metallic pizzazz. For unframed prints, why not try making your own brass coloured bulldog clips as a simple yet stylish way to hang a series.

4. Pair with florals

The rich colour of brass makes it the perfect pairing for delicate flowers and luscious plants. Fill brass vases with fresh foliage for an instant mantelpiece update.

5. Paint it black

Girl with a Pearl Earring, Johannes Vermeer

A dark background is ideal for showing off the gleaming beauty of brass. Try painting your floorboards, or one of your walls in a dark grey and teaming with rugged dark textiles for a thoroughly contemporary look.
