...All of the above design images have a touch of a gold/brass color...in a mirror...candle-holder, box, sconce, lamp or bowl...I love the addition of a brass, gold or gilded touch to a room!

Gas Lamp Booth

...love the Greek key motif on this brass vase...and these brass birds would be perfect as book-ends on a shelf or desk!

...I absolutely love old gilded mirrors in decor...they add such a beautiful touch to any room!

Vintage Milk Can: $55.00

...not usually my style...but loved the pistachio color and gold touches to this vintage milk can...I think it would be perfect as a side table next to a re-upholstered vintage chair...like the french style chair here...or  a wingback chair too!

...or as in this pic too...

...I think this hammered brass ice bucket/wine cooler with the deer motif is perfect for the holiday season...but is really a great year round find for all of your dinner parties!

*Update: Horse Figurine has sold as has the vintage books.

...this brass horse figurine would be a nice touch to any desk...great style as a paper weight!

...my favorite are these vintage owl figurines...with the touch of gold color in their eyes!!

I love the combinations of shiny white furniture mixed with some warm wood tone furniture and gold touches...like the above pieces and pictures...

Then you can add touches of your favorite color...and what a cozy and collected room!

Take care,

Caroline

I had never considered brass before in Vintage interior design!

It's GENIUS!

I love these too! I am all about some gilding, now! I also love antiqued mirrors, would love to learn how to give them that aged look. Enjoy your weekend! XX!

Yes please...all of it! Just got a super gorgeous gold gilt mirror for $50 on Craigslist...lovin' it! Great images...I have a wheat grass gold gilt cocktail table that looks super similar to the wheat wall sconces in the photos! It's lovely!
