Gold, copper, rose gold, silver – no reason to pick just one! Go on, share the love and don’t be afraid to mix those metallics! Just like brown and black can be the best of friends so can all the different metallics you love. With so many gorgeous items in the market right now this is the time to play up your love of luxe accents. Mixing metalics in your space will give your room a rich layered feeling and keep it from looking flat. Bonus – they’re just pretty and fun!
Metallic spray paints are your best friend if you love this look. Within just a few minuets you can turn something old and common into a pretty new sculpture or accent piece.
If you’ve been following my posts here on Style Spotters for a while (or on my blog Inspired by Charm), then you probably know I have a slight obsession with all things gold. As I’ve begun to get my home ready for fall, I’ve noticed how many gold and brass accents I have. Even though I still love them, I’m always up for trying something different, such as copper.
Over the past year, copper has been gaining in popularity.This fall, however, copper has come out in a big way in everything from light fixtures to flatware to pillows. While this metal is a kitchen classic, as seen in the glimmering pots above, new furnishings and accessories have given us reasons to incorporate copper into other areas of our home as well.
With its warm orange and pink undertones, I have a feeling we will be seeing a lot more copper pop up this fall and holiday season. What do you think? Have you always been a fan of copper? Do you plan to add a few copper pieces to your home decor?

Copper is on its way to becoming the new darling of home decor. Gold is still fantastic, but copper is a great alternative or complement to just shake things up a bit. It’s still a little hard to find, but you can get crafty with a can of copper spray paint or some copper tubing (check out this end table DIY and this laptop stand DIY!) until you can find it in more places. I’m loving the pairing of copper and sweet shades of peach; it would make for a really lovely and modern nursery!
