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.
Here’s my pick of some gorgeous copper buys out there…
I love the strong, clean lines of the origami inspired copper shade from Asda and at such a great price, it certainly wouldn’t break the bank. I think it would look fabulous hung above an all-white scheme, particularly in a bedroom. White linen + copper = perfection! The metallic heart light chain from M&S will add a subtle touch of femininity to a monochrome scheme – imagine how pretty and welcoming the twinkly light would be from this at night-time. Next’s Geo cushion demonstrates perfectly how copper and teal can marry so effectively and of course H&M never disappoints with its range of purse-friendly home accessories, such as the little copper and wood tealight holders. They also come in black/white and wood with a copper foil interior too.
So, any favourites for you?
