brass sconces | yes or no?

BrasssconcesHave you noticed that brass is making a comeback in the design world?  Not only is gold everywhere on the runways, it's popping up in interior design publications too.  While I've never been a fan, I find it intriguing these days.  For me, the design has to be modern vs. classic or I think it's horrible.  Lately, I've been contemplating adding wall sconces to my guest bedroom.

Guest-bedroom-now-and-changesCurrently, the guest bedroom has a big lamp dangling over the bed.  While I like it because it's dramatic, it's seen better days.  It's a paper shade and there's tiny brown spots all over from where the light bulb has burned it.  I think sconces would be a perfect solution to the small space.  Why brass?  My Mom's amazing dresser (below) from when she was a kid.  When she first gave it to me, I was going to switch the pulls to something silver.  I'm so glad I never made the switch! What do you think?  Yes or no and which one?
