Copper is trending hard right now. We’ve been easing into this trend by calling this beautiful metallic “rose gold”, which in fact is a metallic not as harsh as true copper, but soft and easy to swallow. The other night I started thinking (read: stressing out while eating a pint of ice cream) about this shift in our favorite metallic hue. Will copper replace our love for gold? I mean, I do sport a rose gold bracelet watch and not a gold one. Is this a sign that I’m moving on? Did I fall out of love for one metallic and not even know it? Is this what sad love songs are all about?
I don’t *think* I’ve fallen out of love with gold. I wear a crap ton of gold jewelry on a daily basis so either I’m too cheap to buy new jewelry or I am rocking my mixed metallic accessories like I just don’t care.
I love all these images with copper accents in the home. I can’t tell if the plant stand above is gold with a filter on the photograph, or rose gold. Either way, I would love it in either metallic. Gold, I am still in love with you.
I just might be cheating on you with copper. Ha!
Then I started thinking of easy ways to incorporate copper in your own home, which led me down the rabbit hole I love so much: online “window” shopping. I even have a Pinterest board for it. You should follow that board of mine, sometimes it’s good.
And what about the kitchen? There are plenty of classic copper accessories for your kitchen. I dream of these in my own home paired with dark cabinetry and contrasting white Carrera marble counter tops (literally drooling right now). Ain’t gonna lie, if that kitchen mixer came in brass, I’d do some terrible things to get my hands on it. Kitchenaid – are you reading this? We need a gold/brass mixer, STAT. STAT means now.
I actually own those Moscow mule mugs, they’re beautiful! but a pain in the rear to clean. I told my husband they’re reserved for our viewing pleasure only 😛
So tell me, will copper replace your love for gold?
