Copper is the trend that doesn't want to leave

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

I remember around the end of 2013 seeing the resurgence of copper as an interior trend, ever since other metals have tried and failed to take its place.  Gold and brass have made the best attempts and were even highlighted as a key trend for 2015, yet just like an overstaying guest, copper is the trend that doesn't want to leave.  Not that we want it too, it's an incredible colour that captivates the eye and dominates the room with elegance and a touch of showmanship.  Copper is warm, there is an emotional attachment that comes from owning a piece in this shade as though its a personal friend.  Although we have featured this well loved trend in the past, we want to show you that copper is the accessory for where you Eat Sleep Live. Let me take you on a tour of the copper accented home, after seeing these incredible pieces you won't want copper to leave either. Kitchen First stop the kitchen.  I know our founder/designer Mark and his beautiful new bride, Leah will have had a wonderful collection of gifts for their wedding, and they may even have had a salt and pepper set.  This simple set will give your kitchen style real edge as well as a little panache.
