Copper Accents

I am on a bit of a house accessorising mission at the moment.  We have all the furniture we need but I feel like a lot of the other bits are very mismatched.  None of the picture frames match, most things have a home but aren’t in it.  There are a few ornaments that just need to go now as our tastes have changed over the years.  In the new year I am going to do up our bedroom as this room is in need of the biggest overhaul.  I have my ideas for there but as I sit here typing away the living room simply isn’t right anymore.

I want to remove most of the pictures and make a feature wall out of them up the stairs (we live in a town house so there are a lot of stairs!)  We have white furniture with black sofas.  To mellow the monochrome feel, which although I love it that was never a deliberate intention for the living room, I thought I would add in some copper.  I love copper at the moment, we bought a couple of copper and black lamps a while ago and then I got some black and copper cushions from Sainsbury’s to compliment them… The obsession has begun!  So here are some of the items I want to complete the look:

A Copper Wall Clock


Copper Fairy Lights

I think these would look great in a glass bowl vase.


Copper and Black Vase


Copper Candle Holders


Copper Letters


Hopefully I can get some of these in the new year.  I’m eager to get filling my life with copper.  I have had to stop looking because it is just going to get out of hand…. I really am obsessed!

      It’s brilliant isn’t it. I ordered it yesterday so hopefully it will look this good in my living room X

    I love the copper trend it is so stylish and adds a degree of sophistication to a monochrome decor. Particularly love the lights in the vase. #bigpinklink
