I am so excited to share all of my tips and tricks for designing with a brass faucet! Whether your replacing a faucet in an existing space or starting from scratch - i am confident you will find a way to make it look amazing.

This faucet will specifically be demonstrated in the design boards below because STANDARD PLUMBING SUPPLY IS GIVING ONE AWAY! Yes. You read that right. Enter here to have a chance to win!

Often times, plumbing fixtures are what goes out of style first. Updating JUST your faucet can make the biggest difference. Plus it is one of the more affordable options when remodeling / refreshing your space! In this post you will find ways to do just that as well as gaining an understanding of how to mix metals in a new home!

HOW TO: GOLD FAUCET


DESIGN 1: Did you know you can mix a polished nickel & gold finish?! It is such a classy look. I love how versatile this design is - hence the “transitional” look. TIP: make sure your golds match!! There is a difference between gold and brass.

DESIGN 2: Traditional, timeless, yet refreshing. Traditional doesn’t have to mean “brown”. In this design below you will notice that the gold faucet is the only gold finish. AND THAT’S OK. You could even swap the hardware out for gold if you’re loving the pretty glam look.

DESIGN 3: Probably the most popular style you see floating around on Pinterest. The warm white oak cabinet with the contrasting black finishes is too good to avoid! Black and gold are always a good way to mix metals.

DESIGN 4: A new favorite of mine - - wood & gold. HOW PRETTY. Layer that with a fun colored cabinet and a textured white tile and it’s game over.

BEFORE

I will never stop saying it - the power of a new piece of furniture along with some greenery is UNREAL. The vision of this space was to become a place that became functional, usable and inviting. It is the first room you see as you walk in from the beautiful open entry. And the floral chairs just weren’t cutting it ;)

It is also amazing how much more complete you can make a room feel by space planning the furniture in a conversational way. This room design started with just two chairs, a side table and a coffee table. It was “enough” but it didn’t quite feel complete! My clients requested to add to the design by bringing in a sofa. I WAS THRILLED. Oh my friends, it is so worth the investment to create a complete room design! No missing pieces, yet still minimal.

The fireplace was already a beautiful focal point - but sadly got hidden behind other items in the room that it could never speak for itself. I right away wanted to let it shine!

Selecting light, bright performance textiles was next on the list. And of course throwing on some color with the pillows and art! In my opinion, you can never have too much greenery.

After installing this room along with the beginnings of the entry and dining, it instantly felt so much more welcoming! My clients now use this room almost daily as a comfortable and formal space.
