Decorating with copper

Fill your home with accessories made of warm copper, 2015’s hottest metal.


Bronze has been the standout metal for designers over the past few years, but now it’s time for bronze’s cool younger brother to take centre stage. Copper has moved up the ranks with its warm, rosy appearance, making its way into every room of the house, from kitchen faucets and dining room pendants to bedroom hardware and living room accessories. Versatile in nature, copper comes in a number of shades to suit different decorating styles, with bright, shiny copper complementing glam, feminine spaces and burnt, brushed copper pairing well with richly-hued, masculine schemes.

These 10 fabulous copper finds will give your space a high-end look for a reasonable price. But try to limit your choices to a few copper pieces per room; when it comes to this rich metal, a splash is all you need!
