A Touch of Brass

I’ve been searching for a new light fixture for my dining room, and I find myself inexplicably drawn to brass. Brass used to be the hallmark of old Hollywood regency style and stock door handles, but no more.  Aged brass seems to be making a comeback  in the design world, and I love it.  Here’s a few of my favorite lighting fixtures and inspirational interior designs featuring brass.Brass Lighting | Be What We Love

Pantone Universe

I have to admit that I fall into that  graphic designer cliche; I love my fonts, paper and Pantone. Pantone has been gaining popularity outside the industry for awhile now,  and for those of us who just can’t get enough, you can find their colors on an ever growing body of products.  Love this Pantone swag.
