Brass Revival

I saw this kitchen in the recent Canadian House and Home- The hardware. OMG.

Stylist Sasha Seymour did the design of her own kitchen. (to see more of the home- click here) The chevron floors, the tile around the fireplace, the glossy white cabinets, the sweet puppy dog, the windows- I love it ALL. Oh yeah, and the cabinets are from IKEA! She just customized her own hardware- apparently "from ebay and misc antique stores." Great- So we can't copy her. :/

Also, it says that they were planning on doing the open shelves wrapped in brass but decided last minute to instead run it along the toe kick. Genius. !!

And then a few weeks ago Bill Ingram's charming cottage was featured in House Beautiful. I fell in love with the kitchen island- especially.. the brass hardware.

I love the juxtaposition of the rustic wood and the shiny brass. Also see how he didn't try to match the faucet with everything? Follow his lead. It's good to mix and match.!

And the gorgeous hardware combination...

What can I say? I'm into inset unlacquered brass hardware these days.
