the hunt for my dream house continues, and i was down in los angeles last week to prove it — going to about five open houses, thankfully with my very good friend bri along for moral support. it’s so nice to have a second set of eyes when you’re house hunting, and i so appreciate her coming along for her great business savvy, design eye and general good house mojo. i’m telling you, bring a trusted friend or family when house shopping or at least share your hunt with them online. we saw a house this weekend that i would love to own and one of the things i loved about it, were its brass kitchen fixtures. they’ve been around for a little bit, yes — but i really, really love the look. i mean, we’ve been hanging with the plain old stainless steel for a while now, so if we hang on to this trend for some time to come, i’m quite alright with that. they’re elegant, but at the same time kinda funky and a little unexpected. how many times have you washed dishes over some dull, stainless steel faucets — too many nights to remember, right? anyway, i’ve been saving them to my pinboards and i thought i’d share what i think is a lovely new trend that has some classic ‘staying power’ as well. have a look.

    In my opinion the kitchen is the most difficult room in a house.
    Since most of the time it is the center of the first floor and the “heart of the house” it should look great.

    I would love my kitchen to be some kind of rough industrial with open cabinets, visible brickwalls, a gas stove and lots of natural materials like real wood and stone.
    But on the other hand it needs to be practical, easy to clean and safe for kids.

    Don’t get me wrong. I love the photos in your blog post. They are beautful. And I would love to have a kitchen like that. But when it comes to (my) reality, an easy going stainless steel kitchen is what I need to go for.

    I have loved brass handles in white kitchen for a while now! So pretty! But does the faucet have to be brass, do you think? In some of the photos there is a mix of stainless steel appliances along with the brass, and that looks fine. What do you think about the faucet and sink?

    I love these brass fixtures too! I’m currently on a big bronze kick but the brass seems like a timeless look. Brass is very trendy this year in jewelry and fashion too. I think you’re onto something!

    Does anyone know what color the kitchen cabinets are painted (blue/black and the bone color) in the picture of Day Kornbluth’s house (at least I think that is her kitchen from other sites).

    Thanks for any help!!
