Maybe this trend was inspired by the uber-popular sunburst mirrors?
Or this insanely popular office that was all over blogland a while back?
For me personally, it could have begun with my finding this gilded antiqued mirror for Linen Haus...
Regardless, I'm loving it!
The classic: black and brass.
I really like it in a white kitchen with touches of green...earthy but a little upscale, too.
I love it with coral! It makes my coral, which is mounted on lucite, look a little tame.
How about just a touch on the inside of lampshades for some glam?
It highlights geometrics so beautifully.
A few years ago I would have still chosen zebra, but with a silver base.
Now, I'm not so sure...I'm thinking gold ups the ante a bit!
Another great example of a white/brass/green kitchen.
This would work beautifully in a 50's remodel.
I'm loving the gilded nesting tables for a touch of romance.
It is really growing on me. How about you?
