A BRASSY COMEBACK

Metallics have always been in vogue, but usually only one dominates the market setting a shiny trend. For some time now stainless steel and platinum have been ruling the world, but after many years of being the underdog brass is swaying its way back to the top once more. I'm so glad this metal's golden tones are gleaming in the design stratosphere yet again. So here are some fun pieces that will definitely brighten up your decor while jumping on this trend. Are you glad brass is back?

IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

It's been a while since I've shared one of my projects with you. But to tell you the truth I've been so swamped with deadlines that I hadn't had a chance to download any of my photos. In this particular project I had to stage a two-bedroom model apartment for a new building in Brooklyn. They wanted it to look fresh and contemporary to appeal to the new trendy crowd moving into this hot neighborhood. This kind of project is lots of fun but also rather hectic because of the short amount  of time I have to put it together — from purchasing to installation I only have a few weeks. To keep it simple and sophisticated I decided to go for a soft and neutral palette with just a few splashes of color to add personality. I mixed and matched furnishings from a couple of styles that I knew would complete my original design. But for me, accessories are one of the most important details to bring life to any home. Since time was of essence, I had to buy various home accessories online which helped immensely at the end. The key is to find the right objects that will complement the other pieces of the room. From artwork to throw pillows, each accessory should add to the aesthetic value of your home. So have fun when choosing them but never forget they should always represent who you are.

A MODERN TWIST ON THE PAST

The industrial trend seems to be stronger now more than ever. All the new home decor collections have taken some sort of inspiration from this retro, rustic style. I personally love this look as it's way of bringing back a bit of the past to our homes. IKEA has truly kicked some butt with their new RANARP lighting line — a modern twist of the vintage industrial lamps. The beautiful fixtures are made of white powder-coated steel, brass-colored trimmings and textile covered wires to complete the look. From pendants to desk lamps, the whole collections is to die for.

REFLECTING SIMPLICITY

The secret to good design lies in the simplicity and functionality of products like The Reflector Lamp designed by Swede Andreas Martin-Löf. The small lighting fixture is put together by using off-the-shelf pieces attached to a handmade metal and marble base. It's a sharp-looking lighting fixture that makes a great accent piece for any room.
