I love working with metal finishes in decoration: chrome, brushed steel, brass, gold leaf, I love them all! Depending on the finish chosen, they instantly add an impression of luxury, shine, modernity, or warmth to a decor that might seem dull at first.
After the return of brass, a new finish has become essential in recent seasons: copper is back! Whether polished, brushed, oxidized, or hammered, it is everywhere!
A true chameleon, copper harmonizes with all shades. I particularly like to match it with neutral colors such as white, black, and gray but also with pastel shades.
Here are some ideas to elevate your decor with a copper touch!
Copper white decor
In an all-white decor, the sphere luminaire with a copper finish brings warmth and shine like a shining jewel. Note the contrast of the materials: antique wood for the console and flooring and modern finishes for the table and chairs with clean lines that bring a lot of warmth to the room.
Copper grey and pink “blush
The “girly” look in a mature spirit. With Pantone colors, expect to see many soft decors combining this winning trio. Here, copper in its more pinkish, gray, and powder pink versions is a very feminine and soothing harmony. I love it!
Hexagonal Roof Tile
I can perfectly imagine this mosaic on a kitchen backsplash or in a small bathroom with white or matte black cabinets that needs a boost. The marriage of different metallic finishes: pink, steel, black stainless steel, and copper make a good match and energize the mosaic.
It is obvious that changing a few hanging lights is a nice way to give a new personality to your decor. Here is a good example of the many shapes and styles of copper finishes: rustic, industrial, classic… They are all beautiful!
My favorite accessory!
Do you prefer to go in small doses? Sometimes, spoiling yourself with a small decorative accessory can do the trick. From British designer Tom Dixon, the copper scented candle with its marble cover gives a touch of luxury on a bedside table, a desk, or at the edge of the bathtub.
Copper in a small touch
Adding cushions with copper accents is another economical way to update your decor. These white cushions with a geometric heart and a copper triangle can be combined with natural materials such as leather, wool throws, or fur.
In kitchens, white cabinets are now adorned with copper accents with handles like these. They are also perfect for revamping a small piece of furniture in need of love. A little “Oumff” guaranteed!
The DIY ladder in copper pipes
Find a friend who does welding and make this ladder using copper pipes and joints that you can find in the plumbing section of your accessory store.
Bring your measurements and have the pipes cut on-site!
Once everything is assembled, hang your bathroom towels, kitchen towels, or magazines in the living room.
Happy copper decoration!
