the ultimate autumn colour: copper

colours

Autumn is my favourite season of the year. After those long and warm summer days, I always look forward to waking up to a crisp morning and wrapping a scarf around my neck when leaving the house. However, I am not keen on warm jackets, socks and an umbrella in autumn. For me there has to be a good degree of sunshine, mildish temperatures, a light breeze, and colourful leaves dancing in the streets. I know, not the most realistic picture I am painting in my head especially considering where I live, but this is autumn for me. We have been spoiled this year: the perfect third season so far, and socks yet to be required…

Thinking of autumn colours for interiors, I do like the current trend for copper. Warm, earthy, reflective. It can add a real touch of sophistication to your home, something a bit unexpected and glamourous. Just what we need with the dark and gloomy months ahead…

Tom Dixon is the go-to designer when it comes to copper. The British design icon has experimented with this material for a long time and his products have become interior design staples. However, there is much more to discover this year seeing as copper is such a trend. Enjoy!

INSPIRATION

What a fabulous idea this desk lighting, simple yet very effective, and definitely unique. Copper and white is such a winning combination. Love the touch of green here, makes me think of spring…

A desk tidy as shiny and glamourous as this one would have been on my wish list for Christmas – had I not just bought one made of concrete… (which I am equally happy with)

One of my favourite interior styles: black and white and greys, distressed wood, lots of different materials and textures, and a touch of green in form of foliage. Tom Dixon’s copper pendant shade is a real design classic, launched in 2005.

Another look with Tom Dixon’s pendant shade – and hang in a group of six, a real feast for the eyes.

I love this chandelier – but unfortunately I don’t know where it is from. Any ideas, please let me know.

For a tiny bit of decadence when it comes to desk accessories…

And if you prefer a bit more understatement in your office look no further than the wall calendar by Kristina Krogh.

Despite its minimalistic form and construction (it is actually boltless), this little shelf by Sigurd Larsen is a real statement piece.

Another design classic, the Stelton Jug, adds some spark to this bright, relaxed kitchen. A wonderful colour composition with powdery pinks and duck egg.

Speaking of bold…just look at these copper room deviders!

Copper accessories casually dotted around in this black, white and grey interior. Once more duck egg is the perfect colour companion. The candle holder is by Tom Dixon.

Are you hooked on copper yet? I am because it works so beautifully in a minimalistic setting. I will keep you posted about the newest copper addition to my home…

PS: I just put on some socks…
