Gold is the new copper.
There, we said it! Big statement we know, but we’re embracing a new metallic this season. This summer, copper and rose gold has been updated with brass and old gold.
We first fell in love with copper a few seasons ago, introducing the colour with Scandi-inspired pastel hues and moody industrial looks. With its warm, rosy appearance, both bright and shiny copper and brushed copper featured in living areas, bedrooms, dining rooms and beyond.
As we look to the warmer months and incorporate a new palette for spring and summer, we are moving away from pastels and into a primary based colour scheme which works best with gold accents. Nice and fresh for the summer season.
The rule for incorporating any metallic in the home is less is more – this applies to copper and our new favourites gold and brass. Being such rich colours, metals are best introduced slowly.
Start off with decorations like the Asteroid Deco Object or Amina Candle, then warm up with larger items like floor lamps and even statement coffee tables. Gold works in all rooms ! Why not add a little glitz to the dinner table with glamorous placemats, or outdoors with brass lanterns strewn around the garden? Or even, be brave and embrace gold through upholstery – the Billie sofa in Austria Gold brightens living rooms in an instant.
While you’re injecting your home with this season’s freshest metallic, change up your colour palette. Bright coloured feature walls make a very bold statement – we love Taubmans Toy Soldier, as well as ‘Blast Blue’, ‘Sunset Skyline’ and ‘Crumbs’ to achieve a pop of colour.
Embracing the trend doesn’t have to be costly. Here are our top style picks under $100.
