25. Covering Up Brass
Many decorators bought entirely into the all-brass trend of yesteryear, especially for decorating bedrooms. Unfortunately, matchy-matchy brass now gives off a very early-2000s vibe that many homeowners are no longer loving. Fear not! Brass furniture doesn’t need to be replaced, as some brass elements are still highly desirable, especially when paired with iron or another metal finish. When surrounded by too much brass, try covering a simple piece with metallic spray paint. It’s a cheap and relatively easy way to change the metallic tone, and spray paint now comes in an incredibly wide variety of hues including rose gold, gunmetal, and more.
