Brass Is Back-How to Use Brass: 5 Key Tips

1. Use sparingly. Brass works best when used in small doses. Too much can create a “too matchy-matchy” look, according to Smithe. Overuse can make it start to look cheap, says Segal. “Moderation is key,” he says.

2. Mix finishes. Brass appears more timeless rather than trendy when it’s matte, brushed, or aged, which helps soften its sheen, Segal says. But be careful, Smithe says, when mixing brasses in a single space from different manufacturers. “There is a huge range in color and brightness. Some take on a bright yellow color while others can be more of an aged gold,” she says.

3. Combine warm metal colors. Brass, gold, and bronze can work well together since they share similar warm values versus shiny nickel, which leans toward the colder side, says Sprouse.

4. Mix metals. Some designers also think brass, satin, brushed nickel, stainless steel, and oil-rubbed bronze can be used together. But Imhoff still offers some caution. “Go with similar warm, muted undertones for some consistency,” she says. Chicago designer Summer Thornton likes mixing metals, particularly in kitchens and bathrooms where she might use brass, nickel, and steel combinations.

5. Consider longevity. How long brass will stay fashionable is unknown. When it becomes too ubiquitous in retail stores, shelter magazines, and on design websites, it may be time to move on. The good news is that brass touches are easy to add in and switch out.

5 Ways to Be Productive While Social Distancing

Social distancing doesn’t have to mean productivity distancing! While COVID-19 has you self-quarantining at home, there are ways to use that time to get ahead of tasks and projects you’ve been putting off for a while. From getting a jump on spring cleaning to shaking things up in the kitchen, here are some ways to use your time at home wisely.

1. Deep Clean Your Home

Running around from place-to-place makes it difficult to squeeze in time for a sanitize. While you’re home, get a jump on your spring cleaning and kill any germs or bacteria that may be hiding out in harder to reach spots. It’s a win-win for your health and your living space!

2. Sort Through Your Closet

Take this time to go through you and your family’s wardrobe. Try things on, see what fits and what doesn’t, and ditch anything that’s so 2019. Bag up the give-away clothes and keep them aside. Later, once the coronavirus dies down and it’s safe to head out, take them to a charity shop or donation center, or consider re-selling online.

3. Rearrange Your Furniture

Being cooped up for a while can help you start to see your space in a new light. If you feel like you need a little more room or just a change of scenery, feng shui your place! Look up ideas and tips on Pintrist, Houzz and other home decor blogs. Get the whole family in on it — your living room will seem brand new!

4. Try a New Recipe

If you have a folder of recipes you have yet to try out, now is your chance! Take stock of the ingredients you have and try out that one dish you just haven’t had time to get to. It’s a great way to feel like you’re eating at a restaurant without leaving your house. Make a menu and plan to make a different recipe every few days!

5. Read a Book You’ve Been Putting Off

How many times have you received a great book recommendation, but never had a second to get to it? This is your chance to dive into a person growth book or even a buzzworthy new novel. Download it as an audio book or eBook if you can’t get the physical copy. You’ll keep your mind sharp and stay entertained while at home.

As you continue to do your part to practice social distancing, you can still be productive! Give these ideas a try and shake things up while you’re at home.

Thank you Brian Buffini for this fabulous blog. Appreciate the info. I hope this helps you with some good ideas, encourages you and lifts you up a bit. We are in this together!

IT’S A GOOD LIFE!!

Seller and Buyer review of Rachel Sheller

“When we decided to find a new home that we could retire to and “age in place”, we contacted Rachel Sheller.  At first we were only mulling over when and what we were thinking.  This took us a couple of years at least before we were ready to actually make the move, but Rachel was patient.

We developed a pretty long list of what we were looking for in a new home, and decided that we would find the new home, get it ready, move, prepare the old place for resale, and then put it on the market in that order.  This whole process took abut a year, but Rachel was ready to assist us at each stage.

Her knowledge of the market and legal processes was a great help in keeping us informed and preparing us for each step.  Our repeated rejection of several houses didn’t phase her in the least.  She was able to take each house rejected and use that information to refine the search for the right house.  And of course we did find that house.

Rachel had many good contacts for the professional help that we needed in inspecting the new house, arranging repairs on the old house and guiding us through the loan approval process and closing.  We certainly would recommend her for anyone who is looking to find a new home.  Her integrity, and knowledge of the local housing market along with her contacts basically provided a good clean transition into our new living arrangements.”

Thank you so much Herb & Ruth for the wonderful Testimonial about what it was like working with me. The real honor is mine to be able to help you find your dream home you can age in place in.
