For those who have decorate brass on their light fittings, mirror or picture frames or other ornaments, the first decision is whether to maintain a warm and cosy ambience, or go for a more light and airy feel. Only then, says House of Brass, can you decide what else stays in the room and what has to go, so that you know what else has to blend in with whatever you introduce.
"Brass always goes well with light wood, then for a warm and comfortable feel, stick to the warmer colours and think about using the Christmassy shades of deep reds and greens. It's best to avoid a harsh orange or yellow which might be too close a match, although you could get away with some touches of mustard yellow," say their experts who also suggest that to cool things down, looking to a palette of blues and purples could be the answer. "Brass with a variety of shades of blue is a very popular combination right now."
And what about complementing chrome? The experts at House of Brass have some ideas on that too.
"If your bathroom fittings are more chrome than brass, to keep things cool stick to neutrals. Black or grey or blue and white with touches of silver metallic paint will also do the trick and appear really sophisticated. Of course, if you would like to warm up the bathroom, bright multi-coloured stripes would really jazz things up. Your mornings would be energised when you enter a bathroom with blue, green and orange stripes reflected in you chrome towel rail and marble splashback. Sunflower yellow is also bright and warming."
It is a simple undertaking to apply these concepts all around the home suggests House of Brass. Changing a colour scheme is an exciting project that can be pushed as far as you desire depending on budget, so why not give it a try?
