Pin the Look – Blush Pink & Copper

I probably don’t have to tell you that Pinterest is a fabulous resource for getting inspiration for everything from kitchen cabinet colours to what to eat for tea tonight, but it’s also a great place to suss out what’s trending at the moment in the interiors world in particular.  With this in mind, I thought it would be fun and informative to take a look at some key looks and design trends that are pretty hot right now and show you where you can source similar pieces.  With Spring being the most popular time of year to turn our attention to home decorating projects, I’m hoping these Pinterest inspired posts will help you along your way.  (See, I’m doing all the hard work for you!!)



The New Metallic – Copper

I really am in love with the current trend for all things copper.  From blush to rose gold, this pretty pink-tinted metal just about goes with anything and everything and it adds a luscious warmth to your interior scheme in a way that just isn’t possible with other cooler, ‘black’ metallics such as steel and iron.  Don’t get me wrong, these big metals are equally fabulous and will stand the test of time in more ways than one, but for the moment I am lusting after those warm coppery hues.

A copper accessory, when paired with other softer decor pieces, will add a certain edginess to the overall look, such as a shiny copper pendant lamp sitting alongside a pale pastel blue sofa.  Equally, it has the ability to soften the harsh lines and dark tones of a heavily industrial interior.  Adding copper accents to an otherwise neutral interior will warm things up, though that said, it happily lends its rosy gleam to a surprising number of other colour schemes, including teal, black, monochrome, muted pastels and the classic all white.
