Warm up January with nice coppery things!
So I know copper was a big trend this time last year (hey I don’t like to jump on a bandwagon too quickly you know) but it shows no sign of going anywhere for a while yet. Since we took the plunge with a couple of copper pieces in our new lounge, I’m definitely on board with it now. Copper just looks so good against a grey or monochrome background (whether that’s your interiors or wardrobe) and is a great way to warm up these drab January days.
The copper floor lamp (c/o Furniture Village) garners lots of compliments and is probably the most ‘statement’ piece in the lounge, which makes the room feel that little bit more special and complete. Yet I don’t think it overpowers the rest of the space or feels too much (well I hope not). It just adds a bit of warmth, shine (and wow factor) which I love. It’s still available to buy if you’re interested (and is on offer by the way – check out the range here).
Anyway, suffice to say it’s turned me on to all things copper (finally). A scan of the inter webs confirms that a lot of other people are too and I’m still seeing so many nice things available in this effect, in a really wide price range. So, you can buy into the trend affordably with a couple of bits or maybe go a little larger if you’re a big fan of the copper thing. And I like the way copper has moved over from interiors and infiltrated more fashion and lifestyle products too, giving a nice alternative to silver and gold that I think will still work well into spring and summer months. But if you’re more of a home girl, there’s plenty more where that came from too.
P.S. Do you think all those grannies with their bright copper kettle collections are laughing their heads of at us right now?
