Brassy

I am really loving brass right now! I love the kind of worn, golden glow it has about it. I’ve been sort if inadvertently collecting pics with lots of brass featured and thought you might enjoy them as much as I do! 🙂

Dark & Light: Brass looks good in both dark and light color schemes. I think it brings a luxurious warmth and texture to both.

Desk Set: What an elegant way to bling out your desk, right!?

Light Brigade: I don’t think you can go wrong with a well placed brass lamp. I’m gaga over Anthropologie’s $1800+ floor lamp… its swoon worthy!

There is a new issue of Lonny out now! I LOVE that mag. I mean, could it be any cooler if it tried? Anywho, in the front with all the cool, newly discovered products are a couple of lamps that floated my light fixture lovin’ boat. Featured above:

Tom Dixon’s Etch Light – exclusive to Design Within Reach here in the US, made through some really cool use of production technology… and seriously sexy too!

The table lamp is the Tulip Family Lamp at Hive Modern. This tall, cage-like looker would be great in an entry hall or swank, Wearstler-esque living room.

I heart Lonny for finding these great pieces. It is one of the many reasons I swoon over every issue. Check out their latest.

On one of my many wishlist surfs across the internet, I found this cheery yellow settee at Urban Outfitters. I thought, “That color is so fun, two is better than one!”. I don’t think I meant to rhyme… Of course, I started planning a room around them. Imagine two of these charming two-seaters facing each other across Blu Dot’s iconic table and you’ll see where I’m going with this! Fill in the details with:
