Show your metal - why this year's hottest decor trend is copper
Metallic finishes are all the rage in 2013, with copper leading the pack as the top choice for stylish interiors. Copper – whether beaten, aged or super-shiny – also feeds perfectly into the ‘rough luxe’ theme set to dominate interiors this year.
Combined with leather and reclaimed wood, copper creates a warm and rugged look that’s totally on trend. Following on from the ever-increasing desire for provenance and authenticity in our interiors, this year we’re embracing a raw and natural feel that celebrates fine materials and craftsmanship.
There are all kinds of ways to introduce the glamour and drama of copper into your home. You could opt for small touches like a picture frame or candle holder, or invest in a show-stopping statement piece like a copper bed from Italian brand Cantori. No shortage of wow factor there.
