Luxe Living: A Touch of Copper

As a natural redhead, I've always described the color of my hair as copper; not unlike a new penny. Because of my familiarity with the shade, perhaps that's why I appreciate the look of copper fixtures and other home furnishings. Its an authentic material that I find warm and somewhat unexpected. When the time comes for me to fly from the nest (hopefully sooner rather than later), I will definitely be coveting copper. I'll certainly adorn my new place with many beautiful pieces.

A few ideas for copper around the house that I'm most attracted to:

  • Planters as makeup brush holders
  • Backsplash tiles in the kitchen 
  • Farmhouse sinks
  • Ceilings
  • Bath tubs
  • Tiles to cover a dishwasher
  • Bath/Kitchen faucets
  • Lighting fixtures
  • Teapots
  • Canisters
  • Barware
  • Tableware
  • Trays
  • Pots and pans
  • Cups
  • Desk accessories/containers
  • Vases

However you choose to style this material, it's a good way to add originality to your home.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
