Just in case you've been hiding under a rock for the past 3 years or so, gold and brass has made a serious comeback. The market is saturated with these shiny accents that you can find on bath and kitchen fixtures, decor accessories, furnishings, etc. Pinterest is chock-full of ideas and pictures to help you get your bling on. I am loving this gold trend. Gold and brass provides such a warmth that you just don't get with silver and chrome finishes. However; there is a fine line in making sure you don't go overboard and create a gaudy look. Before you start pulling out your bell bottoms and ordering that pink toilet to accompany your tub, let's determine the top 5 subtle ways to incorporate gold decor accents in your home.
