Interior Infatuation: Brass

August 14, 2015
brass

Like marble, the revival of brass in interior decoration has been going strong for the last few years. Sturdier than gold, brass has a rustic charm which easily works with many different decor styles. I am obsessed with brass fixtures for bathrooms, kitchens and as lighting, but living in rental limits me to using brass figurines and knick knacks here and there.

Add some brass to your decor with an art deco or baroque style mirror,  a statement stool or (if you prefer subtlety) with some gorgeous planters and bookends.

Interior Infatuation: Malachite

July 8, 2015

Home decor has become an interest of mine ever since I got married and moved into my own place. I am constantly looking at interiors blogs and have a slightly scary obsession with Pinterest (see here). One interiors trend that has currently caught my eye is malachite. I love anything stone, crystal and texture incorporated into decor, and malachite is the perfect amalgamation of all those things. With it’s rich green colour and swirly pattern, the use of malachite (especially when paired up with gold or brass) gives off a very luxurious vibe.

For me, the best way to show off a little malachite would be with an oversized painting on an otherwise neutral wall or some gorgeous decorative boxes.
