Brass details make a comeback for 2017

Brass makes a comeback!


Brass home accents made a major resurgence in 2016, according to Houzz, the style forecasting site for architecture, interior and landscape design. But, instead of a 1980’s revival, the “new brass” was more of a reinterpretation.

And, fashion designers took note! This year, expect to see brass accents such as prominent brass buttons, zippers, chains, and even embellishments on everything from military jackets, to menswear-inspired shoes, to must-have handbags and accessories.

I’ve highlighted a few of my personal faves above. But, I am wondering… are you ready to rock the brass trend in 2017?
