1. Copper Light Fixtures:

Copper furniture and decor has been been cropping up in inspiring interior design over the last year or so, but it is literally everywhere this season! Initially found only in higher end and specialty stores, copper lighting and accents are now a feature in more accessible stores like CB2 + West Elm

Copper accents can take a neutral room from boring to edgy or bland to BAM! in no time - but what’s the best way to add copper decor to your space?

With so many options out there, it can be hard to decide how to incorporate copper in your home. But don't worry, we're here to help you! Below, we've compiled our 4 favorite ways to decorate with copper. (Plus loads of copper decorating inspiration + images both here + on our Pinterest page).

Copper light fixtures are widely available in an array of styles, sizes and price points, so finding copper lighting you love shouldn't be difficult.  Adding metallic lighting to your room can be great way to go big with your copper statement, or keep it subtle. By clustering several light fixtures together, or repeating copper in lights throughout a room - you create a dramatic statement. Another option is to hang one bold copper light fixture to make a simple, yet impactful focal point in the room.

2. Copper Furniture:

Copper furniture immediately ups the wow-factor in any space.  It’s a bit more of an investment, but if you can find furniture in classic shapes and styles, your pieces will outlast the trend.  We’re seeing beautiful copper table legs on coffee tables and dining tables alike, shiny copper arm rests on chairs and even brilliant copper storage.  The key with copper furniture is to pick one anchor piece or a few smaller pieces - you don’t want to overwhelm the room with too much copper (if there is such a thing).

3. Decorative Copper Accessories such as Trays, Vases, Fixtures + Pillows:

Using copper as an accent by layering it in with decor such as vases, pillows and fixtures is a very cost effective way to bring the trend into your home.  As with lighting, you can choose whether you want to amp up the drama by grouping similar pieces together (try clustering vases and candle holders or placing copper fixtures throughout kitchen cabinetry) or focus on a few statement pieces (display a bold copper pillow on an accent chair or position a large copper tray as a centerpiece on your bar cart). There is a lot of room to play... Have fun sprucing up your home with copper accents!
