In several client appointments lately, I have been asked about what to do when their home is filled with silver finishes, but they are wanting to incorporate the gorgeous brass patina that is so popular right now.

 

My answer is easy and simple….   Mix the two!

 

I love a space with mixed metals as it instantly makes the room look like it has evolved over time, rather than everything so matchy matchy like it was bought on the same day in the same showroom.

 

I am not only talking about a finish here and a different finish there, as I have been doing this all along.  I am talking about a bold metal finish that grounds the room, with perhaps another type of finish thrown in.

Below is a picture of a home we worked on several months back.  As you can see below, there are brass finishes throughout……..

But notice how we mixed the two by adding in polish nickel fixtures in the kitchen:
