When we first moved into our St. Louis tudor style home, one of the first spaces to be renovated was our mud room. I knew the style I was after! I wanted clean lines (achieved with painted horizontal cedar paneling), warm brick floors, and utilitarian storage options.
However, I had a hard time finding the oversized brass hooks I envisioned for the walls of the mudroom. I was about to change my mind and install more peg rail hooks, in fact.
Then I was lucky enough to stumble upon these at a local boutique. However, we could never source them again, unfortunately!
After years of questions about where to buy them, I knew it was time for a round-up of current favorites! I love sharing my favorite brass fixtures with you – check out our Unlacquered Brass Faucets, and Brass Cabinet Hardware.
Why do I love brass? Let me count the ways! If you’re wondering what’s so special about this nostalgic metal, here are a few reasons you might want to warm up to some brass for your next home project.
Unlacquered brass, in particular, just creates the warmest, cozy glow in your home. It feels elegant and yet time worn and soft.
It’s easy to clean and can last a lifetime if properly cared for. I love that it adds instant charm and a timeless, classic look to any room of your home.
One of the most impactful parts of a minimalist home design is the combination of beauty and function. Minimalism tends to allow us to do more with less… and that’s exactly what beautiful brass wall hooks can do for your home.
Brass hooks can be a pretty, utilitarian resource for laundry rooms, bathrooms, mud rooms, kitchens, closets and more! As you can see, we used a classic brass robe hook for towels in the girls’ spa bath.
TipNote that when it comes to gold and brass hooks, there’s a significant price difference between true brass and finishes that simply mimic the look. Quality is generally reflected in the price – we’re sharing hooks at every price point in this shopping guide!
