gilded winter

My friends and I have been talking quite a bit about how we finally like adding bits of brass and gold to our lives. I was once supremely silver-centric. I used to joke that I suffered from aurophobia (fear of gold). I would never look at or consider anything other than silver when it came to jewelry or decor.

I realize I'm a few years behind on the warm metal trend but I really didn't appreciate it until now. The key, for me, is to use brass and gold sparingly.
