Lusting over Gold or Brass Hardware

If you have been reading this blog for a while you know I am always obsessing over gold/brassy, shiny things.  For example, I recently did a post on Shiny Gold Things and  I have been known to be a big fan of spray painting things gold like these little trays here.  And remember me swooning over Christian Liaigre's Paris apartment with all that gold detail? Really, I think a lot of things can be easily improved upon by adding some gold. Agree?    Well, I think gold is making a come back in interior decor in terms of hardware- in doors (knobs, hinges), faucets, lighting, cabinet pulls, lighting switches....And so here I daydream of some gold hardware. I mean....aren't you in love with Jonathan Adler's bathroom above? (ooh, by the way, I have that orange trash can in my office! It's from a collaboration he did with Bed and Bath some years ago.  It's a cheapie but a goodie).
How about these beautiful faucets (above and below) and that gorgeous extractor?

I love these golden door levers
and here is a more old school version of bathroom hardware.  (BTW- this malachite lamp is a DIY waiting to happen)
 Are gold accents around the home for you?  Or do you prefer the chrome or nickel look?
