The Allure of Copper

Copper is having a moment and looks to still be a strong color in design for 2018. It’s no wonder, of course, as the metallic hue is both warm and alluring. The soft and reflective glow of Copper is also one that is easily adaptable into any decor scheme and works well with organic elements, such as wood and marble, and colors such as blush and gray. We’ve spied a few beautiful Modern Masters projects evoking this luxe metallic shade and thought to share them with you.

The Warm Allure of Copper

Copper Decorating Ideas and Inspiration | Modern Masters Cafe BlogCopper has such rich, alluring tones that it’s made it a haute 2015 color trend for Interior Design.  It’s a fascinating color that works perfectly with neutral schemes and is a great metallic to add as a splash of color, working equally well with golds, silvers and bronzes.  There are variations of copper in both color and textures in many of our Modern Masters products and we’d thought we’d share some of them with you.

Color Expert Maria Killam recently attended the High Point Furniture Market in October and came away with Coppers and Golds being one of her favorite takeaway trends. She feels they “add a sophisticated feel to furnishings and accessories”.  Designer Cheryl Hucks also attended the Market and noted that for 2015, “copper will the be the newest trend in metallics”.  Several journalists covered the market as well and one noted that “[Copper]…added sparkle to dozens of showrooms and displays, from painted walls to lighting fixtures.” Be sure to look for more of this luscious color in upcoming design features and projects – but we’d love to know what YOU think of Copper.
