The Brass v Copper War
Apparently there’s a HUGE divide in the interiors world (and probably in the design world in general) where brass and copper is concerned.
And I’ve been blissfully UNAWARE of this, until recently.
It would appear that most people have a preference for one or the other (a chat with a few interiors chums has confirmed this). From my own personal perspective it’s copper for me. No question. Brass, in my eyes, is nowhere near as refined, sophisticated and lush as copper. Copper is so unique, that it’s almost impossible to actually describe its hue.
…don’t be ridiculous, of course I know what colour copper is!
Said no one, ever.
I mean, please. Copper is clearly leagues ahead of that ‘ol brass (practically spits out the word ‘brass’). Even the WORD copper rolls off the tongue in a much more refined manner than BRASS! Say them. Say the words copper and brass out loud!
Who wants to sound like the snake from Jungle Book when describing a metallic finish?!
I’m starting to become bitchy in my defense of copper…
See what happens when you jump on board the brass v copper debate?! To me, brass doesn’t come across as ‘classic’, it comes across as dull, dull, dull!
Whereas copper, beckons you to take a few steps closer to fully appreciate all of its mystical splendor.
It’s an intriguing hue of pink! It’s an intriguing hue of orange! It’s an intriguing hue of salmon!
It’s an intriguing hue of pinky, orangey, salmon!
In honour of copper, I’ve put together a little board of my current favourite finds with links below if you’d like to investigate further.
