2011 Trend Predictions (Part 1) - Lux. Raw. Warm. Organic. Texture.

1,2. Bronze Tile, Bronze Pull both by Rocky Mountain Hardware.
3. Restoration Hardware.
4. Brass light fixture by Annabelle Selldorf for Neue Gallerie Design Store.
5,6. Brass bottle openers, patinated brass pendants both by Oji & Design.

Warm metals beckon to be touched. Clever designers have added the element of texture as clearly evident with the tiled backsplash and faceted pendant light fixtures. Don't you want to pick up the bottle openers? Desire to run your finger through the bronze pull? I know I'm dying to!

I've been recommending brass and bronze lighting and accessories for a couple of years now...but just recently it's become an obsession for me.

We will be seeing a lot more of the warm metals over the next few years; they soften the darker walls we are seeing, instill a sense of warmth to our rooms and lend timelessness to our homes, often in some nontraditional concepts!


  1. I love love the pendant lights and that tufted ottoman make me melt- love your board!

  2. oh my goodness I am obsessed with this room! I love all of the various textures and mixtures of styles. It is very unique and original. Thanks for sharing! Stumbled across your blog today and love it. I'm a new follower!
