Monthly Mood Board: Copper Top

"Monthly Mood Board" blog post banner

selection of 10 copper homewares including lamps, clocks, tiles, paint and kitchen utensils

Warm copper tones never go completely out of fashion for interior design; but it’s fair to say it’s been a little overlooked for 30 years or so. It was very popular in the 1960s & 70s, but fell out favour a bit. But, as with most things, trends are cyclical – and copper is certainly back in a big way again – magazines are full of this wonderful shimmering metal.

    My husband (our cook) would love a set of copper pots – he swears they are so much better!

    My favorite item here is the mosaic tiles! Together with a set of pots, they could make a really modern, but warm (warmer than silver at least), kitchen!

    • Adelle & Justin, the H is for Home folks!

      I love copper pans. They are superior but they’re high maintenance trying to keep them shiny & bright! I wonder why copper isn’t used in kitchens more than (as you say, colder) stainless steel. Cost perhaps?
