Copper has been popular in the high-end interiors world for quite a while but now it’s hit the high street in a big way.
I love it because it’s a hugely versatile metal. It can look ultra sophisticated in a highly polished and shiny state, but also lends itself well to the recent industrial trend too.
I’ve picked some of my favourite copper pieces from around the internet. As a bonus some of them also tick the box for embracing another emerging trend, geometric patterns.
Desk accessories, From £22, Anthropologie
Copper Box, From £7.50, Rockett St George
These gorgeous copper boxes are great for storing jewels and trinkets, but they are also a perfect way to store treasured keepsakes such as photos and letters.
Round Captain’s Style Mirror, £68, Not On The High Street
I’ve recently picked up a burnished bronze and leather hanging mirror for my downstairs loo. For a more modern, streamlined version try this copper round mirror. It’s very sophisticated!
Copper Candlesticks, From £5.99, H&M
You can always count on H&M to offer high-trend, low-budget pieces. These candlesticks are just one of the fashionable items in their new decoration section and are available in gold and silver too.
Glass Terrarium, £28, Oliver Bonas
I’ve been looking for a terrarium for a while but every one I found was flipping expensive. That is until now. This handcrafted, antique look, copper and glass terrarium from Oliver Bonas fits the bill perfectly. I think I would load it with succulents or air plants but it could also be used as a lantern.
