Copper in the kitchen
Copper saucepans are a timeless addition to your kitchen. They are a classic design that’s equally at home in modern kitchens. Saucepans made using copper are often serious investments thanks to their unrivalled quality. There’s a reason our ancestors have cooked using copper for the last 11,000 years. Copper heats up quickly and evenly, then slows down fast when removed from the heat. That makes it perfect for cooking fish, sauces and desserts.
To really make your copper accessories stand out, we suggest keeping your kitchen’s design neutral. With minimalist surfaces and cabinets, your copper saucepans will be the star of the show. Plus, they’re stylish enough to display on open shelves or hooks, rather than hiding away in a cupboard.
Copper on the walls
If you like to make a statement with bold interior design, copper is a great choice when it comes to walls. It reflects light beautifully, adding a luxurious and versatile flourish to your space. You could go all out, painting your entire room in a light copper hue. Or you could choose a wallpaper with hints of copper running throughout. Whatever you decide, adding copper to your walls will lend a touch more glamour to your home.
We love this example because it’s perfect for building out a complete design scheme. With plenty of different tones running throughout it, you could easily accessorise with shades of blue and copper. If your design scheme is a little brighter, opt for copper wallpaper with lighter shades of cream, white and grey in it.
