Hot Interior Design Trend: Copper

January 30, 2015

While brass-coloured accessories experienced a leap of popularity during the early 2000’s in relation to homeware, we can safely say that copper is moving in on its territory.

Not only does it bring a subtle pop of colour to any room, it’s also really easy to get your hands on an accessory at any price. Whether you’re looking to spice-up your living room, or change a few details in your kitchen, copper is definitely a hot trend this season.
