Spring/Summer is all about copper when it comes to metal finishes in your interior. Its metallic quality adds a warm glow and is set to be a definite stand-out accent colour in your home. And with 2013 all about embracing raw materials and natural elements, copper is totally on trend and a perfect addition to the look.
Copper's increasing popularity has been seen gradually introduced into the home mainly through lighting, the perfect accompaniment in the kitchen to cooper saucepans and pipe work. However, with the trend set to stay, we love the idea of a investing in a more permanent statement accent and reviving the traditional cooper finish bath tub.
For that high impact style without the price tag, we suggest teaming metal finishes with copper on the walls and applaud Rezzonico shown above from O&L, and Cole & Son for their Diamond Stripe and Woods & Pears wallpaper designs. The metallic finish creates a subtle, romantic shimmer that other metallic tones just can’t achieve.
With its appealing rosy hue, both matte and shiny, copper has found its place in many stylish contemporary trends. Its versatility sees it emerging through many forms, but one that stands out for us is the luxe look achieved with metallic fabrics for a soft injection of shimmer.
For those wanting to include just an accent of copper, cushions are a simple introduction into your interior scheme. James Hare’s ranges of silks are perfect combined with metallic fabrics from Zoffany’s Elementi collection.
