Bronze Age for a New Day

All that glitters is not bronze, silver or gold, but with the Winter Olympic Games upon us, let’s focus on these honorary medals. They are symbols of achievement, perseverance, and honor… truly precious metals.

Today, the US athletes are tied with Norway, each holding 20 medals. Team USA has a solid streak, with 6-GOLD, 4-SILVER, and 10-BRONZE medals.

BRONZE

Bronze is basically the most unpretentious of metals.  An object made of bronze seems to say:  “I am no frills, strong and made for functionality”, that in and of itself is the inherent beauty of bronze. The oil rubbed bronze on trend today works with virtually any décor from traditional to modern. This element ages gracefully and will develop a patina of beautiful depth. Lastly, bronze adds warmth to a room.  I have picked some of my favorite bronze home accents below that will work with any home decor – sleek or cozy , masculine or feminine.
