The onset of fall has me thinking about warmer design elements, and brass is one of my favorites.

The Pursuing Vintage shop has many brass home accessories, however I wanted to share some fabulous ways to add brass or gold in a more permanent way.


I just love the way brass pairs with marble.  Brass or gold accents on the floor are so unexpected – the details can be large (like the veins running off the bar in photo 3) or small (like the simple border around the herringbone floor in photo 5).

Have you used gold in a unique way in your home? I’d love to hear about it or see it!

I was trying to think of a title for this post, and I kept thinking back to the Robert Frost poem in the book The Outsiders.  I think it’s so pretty, and has always been one of my favorites.  So how about a little poetry today?!

Nothin Gold Can Stay

As much as I love this poem, I think Robert Frost was wrong when it comes to home decor.  Gold can stay.  It is classic!

Let’s take a look at some inspiration for incorporating gold and brass into your decor:

I have several gold tone vintage home accessories in the Pursuing Vintage Shop right now, including this new addition:

Aren’t they a cute pair?

Remember what Robert Frost said, “nature’s first green is gold” – let’s hope nature’s first green is right around the corner!  Spring will sure feel gold after this extreme winter!

Have a great weekend!
