Brass is back and in full force, adorning bar carts, office supplies, and even kitchen cabinets and dressers. One of my favorite ways to incorporate the finish into a space is by adding brass hardware to furniture- heirloom or otherwise, for the perfect touch of expensive looking detail. Can you guess which of the drawer pulls above I'll be ordering for an upcoming project this week? 

1. U-Turn Drawer Pull - Atlas Homewares
2. Square Knob - Cliffside Industries 
3. Diamond Ring Pull - House Of Antique Hardware 
4. Martha Stewart Living Drawer Pull - Home Depo
5. Rosette Handle - White Chapel 
6. Recess Campaign Drawer Pull - ATG Knobs and Hardware 
7.Octagon Shaped Cabinet Knob - Cliffside Industries 
8. Lightening Handle - My Knobs

Treasure

Today, one of my instructors was kind enough to gift me a vintage steam trunk (so incredibly sweet of her) since she knows I love vintage and antique items. It needs a little TLC, so I plan on thrifting some pretty wall paper to cover and line the drawers on the inside and using it as a coffee table by using trays or cutting a piece of glass for the top to protect the surface. But until then here are some inspiration images of homes decorated with beautiful antique trunks. Enjoy!

Hope you have a wonderful rest of your week!
