There are always going to be colours and materials that will continuously work as accents to a room, and one of these is copper. There was a dip in popularity last year where we were being told that copper was out, and to be replaced by other metalics like gold and bronze. But we can assure you copper is going nowhere and in 2017 it’s again going to be big.

As with most metalics copper works best in accessories, complimenting a room and colour scheme. But if you are feeling brave then there is a whole lot more you can do to get your copper fix.

Lighting is a great place to start with some gorgeous pendant lights, desk lamps and floor lamps readily available, as well as bringing subtle tones into bulbs and flex.  [ made.com and rockettstgeorge.co.uk have some amazing lighting ]

Using copper lighting with industrial furniture

Introduce copper in furniture through table legs and drawer fronts combined with dark woods on table tops and cabinets. Copper is a great metal to bring an industrial feel to a room working best with strong solid design, and when it’s worn it looks even better.

Pick some key pieces, whether it’s a wall clock, vases or kitchenware and stratigicaly place them around the space mixed with other prints and pattern to suit. Copper is a great metal that works with many different trends; scandinavian, industrial and bohemian to name a few, so whatever your taste copper can be included.

[ Some complimentary colours to consider would be navy, grey, dark green and white ].

For a full on copper experience you may want to consider covering a wall or floor. Pick a patterned paper with touches of copper, or go for an all over solid block on a feature wall. This can look really striking, especially in dark rooms. Tiling is another option to get the wow factor with brushed and worn copper working best, especially if considered for a hallway or kitchen.
