TREND # 3: Copper

There is something about this metal that makes me want to dye my hair strawberry blonde, don a frilly frock and bake a bunt cake. Beautiful copper hues have been shining through in everything from furniture and accessories to kitchen cabinets and Airstream trailers in the last few years, and thank goodness, we have not yet seen the last of it.

Softly Does It.

Both Pantone’s and Dulux’s colours of the year are the perfect compliments for copper. Marsala and Copper Blush should be used liberally, on walls and lips alike!

Put it up.

Whether it’s your kitchen cabinets or your caravan, if you’re going to overhaul make sure you clad it in copper.

Something for everyone.

Team it up with moody blues and walnut for a strong, masculine feel. Or play on the soft side of the metal with mauve, grey and rosy pink.

Make a statement.

Be daring and choose statement pieces that have that WOW-factor.

The small things.

Or keep things toned down and opt for subtle – a simple vase as part of a grouping or the legs of retro chair.

This exquisite cutlery set makes my eyes well up – it is seriously covetable. But if copper cutlery doesn’t quite cut it for you, opt for a understated cage light.

Ride it.

Wow. Nothing else, just WOW!

This trend is certainly here to stay for a few more years, so whatever you do: make sure you copper!
