But I'm back in action with a lovely guest post today from Andi over at All Put Together. Her blog is as pretty as she is, hop over to take a peek. Welcome Andi!
Hello fellow Marcus Design fans! I’m excited to be here today to share another design trend that has made a comeback: brass. I was surprised like
Now before you get too scared, it's the darker, more antique looking brass that’s back, not the super shiny, yellow brass that can be seen on dated door knobs, light fixtures and faucets. Still not convinced? Take a peek at these beautiful interiors that feature brass elements.

After looking at these gorgeous spaces, it’s not surprising brass is back - it exudes warmth and richness, and complements nearly any color palette. My favorite color pairings - brass with teal and brass with pink, both examples are featured above.
What I also love about the resurgence of brass is how individuals are decorating with both brass and silver-toned pieces in the same space. Just a few years ago, we wouldn’t dream of mixing metals, but today it looks incredibly chic and purposeful. Throwing out the “matchy matchy” rule opens up a whole new spectrum of design possibilities and I’ve certainly been taking advantage of this change in my home!
Thanks so much for having me Nancy and I look forward to the opportunity to contribute to your fantastic blog again!
