In This Kitchen, It’s All About the Brass

Oh, brass. It’s rare that we see you in contemporary kitchens. But when we do, it can be absolutely wonderful. Take, for instance, this gorgeous kitchen near Brooklyn’s Prospect Park:

Designed by the borough’s Workstead interior designers, brass shows up in the fixtures, the vent hood, cabinet door hardware, and even on the switch plate. It’s not that yellow, gaudy lacquered stuff, but an aged-looking brass with patina. Mix such a beautiful finish with clean, contemporary lines and the result is simply brilliant.

What do you think of brass in the kitchen? Are you a polished chrome or brushed stainless fan or do you think brass has its place?
