As summer ends and seasonal weather starts to set in, the warm feelings of autumn comes right with it. Fall tends to have the same personality and characteristics each year in our homes: nostalgia, family, warmth, and tradition. We love bringing these feelings to our homes with vintage and old world inspired trends that are often popular in home design and décor around this time of year. We have the usual “go to” holiday decor changes we make as well: leaves, burnt orange colorations, and earth tones. However, if you’re looking for something unexpected and new, while creating the same nostalgic feeling, you’ll want to dive into this trend. Expect to see a new wave of copper finishes and details this autumn and holiday season, like this example we found on Mod Weddings (photo by Onelove Photography)

Copper is subtle, classic, and the most under-appreciated of the metallics. It’s presence in any room design, whether large or small, bring warmth and dimensionality. We’re so excited to see it make a resurgence this season! Just check out our Bartlett Bronze cordless lamp, when the light hits this hand mixed metallic glaze, the copper in the glaze is highlighted. And what makes a great pair next to our lamp are these fantastic copper printed pillows on organic hemp we saw on Wanelo.

Copper Cans and Containers for Storage: You don’t have to commit completely to copper to bring this season’s trend into your home in clever ways. No home makeover necessary! Like other metallics, copper is versatile and can easily blend with existing decor, colors, and even other metal finishes almost enhancing your color scheme. Vintage cans and containers are an easy find at any antique store local to you. Filling them with everyday items will bring a traditional holiday feel to your kitchen, office, or living room. Like this example we found on the Weekday Carnival Blogspot.
