Yup, the warm metallics are still going strong. This is the trend that just won't quit, but that's ok because we love it. This fall, try incorporating some gold, brass, or copper accents into your home design for a rich yet not too opulent look. Check out more fall design trends like Warm Woods and Comfortable Kitchens.

  MINIMALIST BROOKLYN APARTMENTPublished as: Top Brass Here is a great example of one family that has incorporated two of our favorite fall trends, warm woods and brass accents! For them, an updated kitchen meant rich materials, a warm walnut slab, and custom woodwork by Marcus Bartenschlager all courtesy of their architects Workstead. The real masterstroke is all that brass, touches of which include a chandelier that Workstead designed, a custom range hood from Rangecraft, and a faucet by Rohl that the architects had stripped and plated in brushed brass. “The use of brass throughout the apartment was a decision that we made early on," says Workstead founder Robert Highsmith, "to both speak to the clients sensibilities, and our own desire to have a warm, bright tone in the apartment.” photos by: Matthew Williams    Photo by Matthew Williams.

  NEW PROSPECTS Here Brooklyn homeowner and architect Jeff Sherman built a volume that contains storage space and extends from the first floor to the roof of his renovated row house. He covered it in inexpensive copper flashing so it would read as a single object. Adding the copper was a stroke of genius. photos by: Dustin Aksland  Photo by Dustin Aksland.

  METAL VERTICAL WALLS Ti, Al, and Cu are all excellent options for siding. These natural elements are nontoxic (you probably ate some copper in your cereal this morning) and easily recycled. But for us, copper takes the cake because of its chameleonic qualities and 200-to-300-year life span. While the investment clearly pays off, it's still a more expensive option than vinyl, but family-run Zappone supports DIY customers with an installation guide for their interlocking system, which will cut down on cost if you're willing to sweat.
