“Yes, we are now mixing brass with stainless steel appliances!,” says Brown. This mixing of metals provides a subdued touch of luxury to the most popular gathering space in your home—making it a chic new spot for impromptu kitchen cocktails.

You will also find the look of brushed brass as accents on drawers and cabinets in the form of pulls and knobs.
