Why We Love Copper Home Decor
Warm, chic and versatile, copper has made a comeback. Often thought of in the form of bright kettles and verdigris statues (we’re looking at you, Lady Liberty), copper reenters the design arena with updated luxury for residential spaces. Whether you go all-out for its rosy complexion or mix materials to create artistic eclecticism, copper stands out as a deliberate and distinctive design decision.
From modern to traditional and onward to the avant-garde, these copper offerings of lighting, fans and home decor implements seamlessly coordinate with myriad colors and textures, providing easy updates to existing design schemes.
Where Copper Lighting, Ceiling Fans & Home Decor Work Best
Copper is a highly-refined choice that can be used to elegantly decorate various rooms of the home. In the entryway, a copper chandelier is a stunning choice and can be paired with sconces also finished in this beautiful metallic look. Kitchens welcome pendant lighting finished in copper or consider a copper ceiling fan to keep the breeze flowing. In the bedroom or reading nook, copper lamps provide a way to show off this look while also being versatile and portable. And finally, outside of the home, consider using copper throughout your outdoor and landscape lighting for a noticeable difference in the backyard.
