Brass bling

I was having a little mooch on Pinterest the other day procrastinating trying to put off working on my Sanitaryware Schedule (YAWN) hunting down some fine imagery for you peeps, when I came across this trio of lovely ladies:



And instantly decided there is still not enough brass in my life.

We’ve decided to split our office / guest room into two halves design-wise: a fun bright girly desk with aquas, white reedy Bali baskets and bamboo blinds, and a serious man reading corner {said in serious man voice} with dark leather, cigar boxes and antique brass shizzle.  Will look a bit weird all together but if you close your eyes when you walk into and out of the room it will be fine, ha.

Anyhoo so I’ve been on the hunt for a cool manly light fixture that would get the hubs’ seal of approval.  Here are some of the options…

brass lamps interior design

{clockwise from top left: bare bulb floor lamp, marble base desk lamp (still OBSESSED with this!!), swing arm sconce, shade sconce, bare bulb table lamp, sconce, caged filament table lamp}

Which is your fave…?

    The one in the middle and the one on the bottom left! Not the girly white lampshade one or the mother of pearl… Not manly at all!

    Hi Elly, hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend. I think the brass light features add such a great masculine structure and sort of industrial feel to a room. I love the table in the second pic, really clever usage there. Your room sounds like its going to be amazing, please do share some images … I appreciate you taking the time to visit 🙂

    Ciao Elly! Now that you make me think also in mine!:) I like the three decors and the brass in them, Regarding your light fixture my fav are the wall or the desk ones! Kisses and have a great day! xo

  4. Thank you for these images Elly! They are great! Any tips on how to make apartments boyfriend friendly but still classy (I.e. not compromise too much with what I like) are very welcome too 🙂
