Up until now most of my posts have talked about how much I like black, white, beige and my general lack of color.
I admit that gold doesn't really stretch my limits much, since in my palate it's generally just a darker form of beige. But recently I've really been adding the gold accents by way of old brass. I'm shocking myself with this one because I never liked brass.

Old brass chandelier my friend gave me back in February now hanging in my dining room

Extra large and very old gilt mirror
Faux brass/gilt finish chandelier in sunroom
I've even taken this color into my jewelry line. I thought this necklace would be perfect for summer and can go formal or everyday.
And since I'm wearing gold again I needed a gold watch. I picked this one up at Target yesterday. Cute and fun cuff style.
The best part is, since brass has been so out of style it's very inexpensive. I don't think any of these items cost me more than $12 :)
