Things We Love: Combining Brass and Marble

Brass and marble kitchen of Nate Berkus

Chocolate and peanut butter. Blue and white. Brass and marble. Some couples are just so good together that we can’t imagine them without each other.

We always wonder about that magic moment when two things were first combined and, from then on out, were always better together.

We will probably never know when brass and marble were first combined, but what we do know is that, now that we’ve seen them together, we are totally smitten!

You know that white marble is one of our forever favorites, especially for kitchen counters.

We love how it wears and changes over time, how it becomes something a little bit different as the years go by.The same is true with brass really, in that it starts out shiny and metallic and dulls and ages with time, its beautiful luster becoming a lovely patina.

Maybe that’s why these two staples go together so well.

Like the best couples always do, they change as they age but still complement one another so beautifully.

What Mimosa Lane is saying about Slightly South of Simple:

slightly south of simple

“Kristy explores family bonds  and how they can be put to the test as a a secret from their past that has the potential to tear them apart surfaces. This is Kristy’s third book and I am just so amazed at her imagination that conjures up such beautiful stories and heart-felt stories.  I can envision this one becoming a movie and having maybe Julia Roberts play the mom?” Albertina, Mimosa Lane

House of Honey

We all know that trends come and go. Even those things that we once considered “classic,” can, from time to time, become passe. In fact, if you’d asked us how we’d feel about the return of brass a few years ago, our answers wouldn’t have been so positive. But, revamped, redone and better than ever, this sleek shade is just the thing to bring the kitchen right into the “now.” And, we certainly hope, into the future as well. Take a peek at better-than-ever brass in the kitchen. It may make you want to do a little updating of your own!
