Hot Interiors Trend: Copper


Copper has been a burgeoning interiors trend for a while. Quick, get involved. It could not be more perfect for the chilly months ahead.I think a seasonal refresh is no bad thing. Not a makeover per se, more of a change of cushions/addition of blanket to sofa/switching of candles. And copper is perfect for ‘winterfying’ your space. It has warmth, it gleams, reflects the flickers of candlelight. It’s easy (and bargaintastic) to switch your accessories. (I nearly wrote ‘switch up’ there, but then decided I am too grown up to do so. This youth parlance, as the Dowager Duchess might say.)

I have no issue with this. It’s Strictly season and all’s right with the world.)
