  Good morning, readers! We hope all is well with you today! You know we love your emails, so we were so excited when our friend Patti emailed us about her fabulous new kitchen!

 She, like us, loves to mix gold and silver. And she was wondering: should she use brass in the kitchen? (Although, she mentioned that it seems to be called “gold” these days. Brass is a bad word!)

  We totally get the worry of a resale nightmare. We’ve all seen that house that is so 80s it would take a bulldozer to de-80s it.

 But, we think that brass, gold, whatever you want to call it, when done right, is positively fabulous!

We always hate to use the word “timeless” because, well, at some point fifty years ago someone probably thought her harvest gold floor tiles were timeless… So, you know….

But, for the foreseeable future, we think the gold/brass situation is here to stay.

 In fact, looking at these gorgeous kitchens, we’re sort of feeling like brass may be in and stainless making its way out again.

 But, like Patti, we love to just mix all those metals together!

 Patti, if we were you, we’d go for it!

 We think an unlacquered brass makes it feel fresh.

 And, of course, send us photos when you’re finished!

 What about you, friends? Do you love the brass? Would you stick with stainless? Would you go a different way?
