When it comes to interior design metal finishes, most are familiar with chrome, polished nickel, stainless steel, and these days, even more familiar with trendy gold. You can’t open a magazine without seeing the gold interior design trend…gold faucets, gold knob kitchen appliances, gold lighting, and of course brass and gold accented furniture. As an interior designer, I like to look ahead for my clients and bring the next big design trend. For that reason, I’m looking to copper and rose gold.

Here are some of my favorite copper finds that will bring a fresh new look to your interior décor. Impress your friends by being one step ahead with your interior design impulses by incorporating some copper or rose gold metals into any room in the house.

Dazzling Dining Room Switch Up

Pioneer your dining room with a mix of clear glass and rose gold metal as shown in the art deco inspired table below. As you will see, a stylish foil for copper is anything black. What balances the strong black and gleaming copper/rose gold drama is the clear glass table top.

The amazing sculpted base shines in rose gold plated metal. With a 59” round clear glass top, this table exemplifies the chic use of unexpected copper metal coloring.

Kitchens that Rock Copper in an Unexpectedly Modern Way

Copper in the kitchen was typically found with an antique sink or faucet but now it’s gone modern. Choose architecturally straight lined copper accessories like this modern faucet or square sink.

Notice how dramatically the black quartz countertop offsets the modern copper sink and faucet.

Copper is particularly new looking in lighting. These orb shaped copper pendants create an incredible focal point. Your eye goes immediately to the copper and blends seamlessly with the other kitchen metal finishes.
