love at first sight: brass

There were so many things I loved about my childhood home.  I loved the french doors that led to my balcony.  I appreciated that we had a formal living and dining room where Gigi hosted annual Christmas parties.  I felt especially certain that there was something special about Gigi's smattering of collections around the house... including her collection of signs that adorned the sides of the barn sitting adjacent to the house.

In spite of the things I loved about that house, there were certainly things that force me to wrinkle my forehead in confusion.  The wallpaper, the avocado green appliances... and the brass.  And perhaps the most confusing part is that the brass I formerly found so repelling, is currently winning me over.

You'll likely fall for it as well after taking a look at the images that follow...

There's hammered brass...

Polished brass...

Antiqued brass...

And soft brass...

I love them all...
