Ok, admittedly I am a little late to the copper/rose gold/marble trends that are everywhere on Pinterest and Instagram but it doesn’t mean a girl can’t share the love! I’m new to the whole apartment decoration game and have only recently begun to develop my own aesthetic. While my current apartment leaves much to be desired, I dream of future spaces where my decorative vision can become a reality. And where do I start? Copper accent pieces. I cannot say enough about how much I adore the look of metallic accents in a space. They work in virtually every room and can make an otherwise neutral space pop. I love copper in particular because the shininess draws attention while easily bringing together a rustic and modern style into one room. I’ve added a few of my favorite pieces that can add a metallic flair to any room on a large or small budget (and did I mention that there are SO many DIY projects on Pinterest that are Copper related?).
Schoolhouse Electric is a company that my brother turned me on to when we were in Oregon last month. I love the look of these pendant lamps- they would make a great addition to a kitchen or dining room.
Adding in a touch of copper throughout the home is easy to do. Copper canisters can be used for utensils, dry goods, or even as planters or flower vases.
How amazing is this DIY table project from Home Depot? If only I had a pipe cutter and a sander in my studio apartment…
