Copper is back

Home owners are decorating with copper all over again. The look is warm and the material is high quality. Interior designer Sarah Bernardy-Broman, Allied ASID says, "In the world of stainless steel appliances mixed with chrome or satin nickel hardware, copper accents can bring timeless warmth to an otherwise sterile environment. The natural character of copper as it patinas creates a sophisticated style to your home that you don’t get from these other finishes." Copper can be added to your home decor in small doses or big. Both add a perfect notice-me touch to any room in your home. Check out these absolutely fabulous copper accents.

Copper's in the details

Long used for pots and pans, we love the concept of bringing copper out of the kitchen in chargers or trays for an instant up-a-notch look.

Accents make a room your own. This perfectly placed copper vase becomes a centerpiece without trying too hard.

Copper candles can be added to any room for a big (decorating) bang with a truly minimal effort.

Copper commitment

If you're ready to commit to copper — and we so think you should — lighting makes a room, and copper lighting makes a truly fabulous room.

Copper furniture creates a space that's truly unique and lovely. The color draws you in and makes you want to stay.

Copper fixtures are another way to commit more fully to copper. These are fixtures that are sure to be noticed for their beauty and style.
