Copper crush: 100 fabulous ways to use copper in your home

July 21st, 2015

Fresh Design guide to using copper accents in your decor
Unleash your love of copper, with these fabulous home ideas!

The metallic copper home trend has been around for a while, but is still going strong and we can certainly appreciate why.

As a material, copper has been used in homes and architecture for centuries, although in the past it’s often been hidden from view when used as cladding or as a base on pots and pans. Used in homes today, the metallic finish of copper is very effective when used in homes alongside natural materials such as wood or brick, or contrasting colours such as white or black, and looks right at home in contemporary design.

As a colour, copper works across the seasons, complementing pink or pastel tones in the spring and summer or adding a warming glow to rooms in the autumn and winter. It works surprisingly well with bold colours too – try using a copper accent alongside a deep indigo or moody green wall, for example, and you’ll create a distinctive pop of colourful energy.

Copper can be used in so many ways in your home, from furniture and wall décor, to lighting, candle holders and decorative accessories. The shops are full of copper themed ideas, so here at Fresh Design we’ve put together a guide to 100 of the best copper buys.

There’s something for all budgets, from affordable to high end designer, product ideas to suit a range of rooms (including the bathroom, kitchen, living room, dining room and study) and – hopefully – something that will appeal to a variety of tastes.
