Copper 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.
Artist Arlene Mcloughlin used our ShimmerStone as a plastered finish base for a beautiful stencil pattern in a rich, copper metallic gold from our Metallic Paint Collection.Copper wall finishes are so versatile!

The very creative Wendi Wachtel of the popular H20 Bungalow blog is a big fan of Modern Masters. She wanted a patinated copper door and used our Copper Metallic Paint to help create the entrance she wanted – they are the perfect products to use if you’d like a metallic front door. (Even Oprah magazine agrees!) She also recently used our Copper Reactive Metallic Paint from our Metal Effects line to patinate her mailbox.
Designer and Artist Linda Gale Boyles of Southern Inspirations transformed a round dinner table by using our Copper Metallic Paint along the top, then aging and protecting it. Gorgeous!
Stiltskin Studios creates gorgeous hand-painted furniture – and we love what they do with our Metallic Paint! On the top, they used Copper Metallic Paint as a table top color for a dresser and on the bottom, they used Copper Penny Metallic Paint on an updated Drexel desk.
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.
