Happy Wednesday!  Yes, I too, took a break from my Wednesday blog posts over the holidays, and am excited to start the new year with more design discussion and inspirational photos!  I usually don't make a habit of quoting AC/DC, but I can't help it for today's post.  "I'm "Back in Black!"...and Brass! (cue cymbal!) Honestly, I'm a color fanatic at heart. I love all colors, bold, bright, soft, muted, but I seem to really be drawn to this black and brass combination.  It looks rich and modern, yet simple.  Whether it's on furniture, appliances or accessories it is definitely a show stopper.  The new brass finish is hot in decor trends, and is making it's way into more Kansas City homes.  The color black is a great neutral to add to every room, and when you combine the two together, you get pure awesomeness!

My phone photo from the magazine isn't great, but you can still see the detail here on the armrest and bottom of this sofa.

Gorgeous black, white and brass tile.

Simple brass hardware against the high gloss black finish makes this piece fabulous!
