Last year, we added several new standard colors to our substantial list for designer brass hardware. We've been quietly adding more in recent months.
Golden Yellow - A Fresh Blend of Color
We love Golden Yellow because it brings a fresh look on yellows and oranges. It reminds us of colors we see in Florida groves and the mountains in Arizona's high country. (We also use a variation of it on this blog.)
Golden Yellow is an excellent accent color for brighter colors that dominate a room. Here's an example of a Euro-style toilet paper holder finished in this color. It's from our Malibu Collection, one of four collections that include essential bathroom hardware at a lower price point.
The Elegance of Antique Pewter Finishes
Our Antique Pewter finish was a little overshadowed by all the new colorful finishes. It's the latest addition to our metallic colors and delivers a soft, elegant touch. We love the way it looks on this three-tiered hotel style towel shelf.
Antique Pewter complements modern and traditional decor, like this robe hook from our Sag Harbor Collection
Age Your Brass into the Patina You Want!
Do you like the look of aged brass? We get it. We offer an unfinished option that lets you age your brass to a patina you like.
Brass ages into different patina colors influenced by the amount of oxidization in the air around it from moisture and heat, as well as the composition of the brass itself. Our friends at Rotax Metals offer this more detailed explanation about the patina process.
We source brass from around the world, so we really can't predict how our unfinished products will naturally age. However, there are ways to speed up the brass aging process, as we discussed a few months ago.
