With its rich history and adaptability, copper imparts a subtle, yet impactful presence in a room, and we are seeing more and more of it as designers and their clients get more comfortable mixing metal finishes.
Copper's warm appearance comes in a variety of shades. Polished rose-gold, which takes its cue from jewelry designs, seems so appropriate in feminine spaces, while "penny" brown and heavily patinated hues pair well with masculine schemes and outdoor applications. This very versatile accent can add yet another layer of industrial glamour to any interior.
