After attending “What’s New What’s Next” at the New York Design Center recently, I came back with hope that, yes, COLOR IS BACK!  I love what I am seeing everywhere from rugs, to fabrics, to upholstery and even lighting.  Color is back.

In this great video segment by Editor At Large, Cecil Adams and I talk about how all of this color needs warmer metal tones to support it.



So there in lies the story behind this post, “50 Shades of Brass”.  Take a look HERE.


After all, there are too many shades of our favorite colors to count.::5o Shades of Red, 50 Shades of Orange and even 50 Shades of Gray.  (I couldn’t resist).  Brass and Gold shades are no different.  With everything from bright, shiny, bold brass, to elegant gold leaf, to warm, burnished brass – there is something for everyone and every space.

I believe that not only is brass back, honestly it never left.  For Currey & Co. brass has always been a staple.  I remember a few years ago when I wanted to use a brass fixture, no one seemed to have one.  Everything was silver or chrome or black and I was able to find what I wanted with Currey. Here are a few of my favorites and a few sneak peeks of new introductions for High Point Market as well::

Don’t you just love how all of this brass goodness just jumps off the page?  Make sure you don’t miss any of these great pieces during High Point and I will be in the showroom too, so please drop by and say HELLO!  I would love to see you.

As a blogger ambassador for the NYDC (yes, all the way from Dallas) I am excited to be sharing with you the collage I created for the New York Design Center’s “What’s New, What’s Next” event on September 19th.  I started with my favorite piece, the Kelly Wearstler Souffle Sofa and it was “off to the races” from there.


“Modern for Now” is the title of my collage and I hope you will give it some love on Pinterest and re-pin until your heart’s content.  Afterall, the most repins of my board will get me back to my “home-away-from-home”, New York!  Let’s generate some love for this event and share what I think is Modern……for now. 



P.S.  I am away this week at Tobi Fairley’s Mastermind event where we kick off three days of amazing learning this evening with an event at the Oscar de la Renta exhibit at the William J. Clinton Presidential Center.  So make sure you are following along on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter to see all of the fabulous-ness from the South the next few days.
