Copper home accessories have been about for the last few seasons and are set to be a big thing for Spring/ Summer 2016 too. What appeals to me about copper is that it almost has a pink undertone meaning it’s just not as bright and obvious as gold. I particularly love it paired with grey and pink for a modern, chic contrast.
See below for some inspiration from Pinterest on how to integrate it into your home. Just remember, not all that glitters is gold.

When I first started decorating my home 3 years ago I did not anticipate my style would change and develop as quickly as it has.
Travel, art and experience of living in my space has helped me build what I hope to be an eclectic, yet timeless style for my home. I often ponder what that style is and I suppose it’s a bit of a ‘Frankenstein‘ style. Bits and pieces of a number of different looks to create my own individual sense of what style is to me.
I always think of the quote from Oscar de la Renta, ‘Fashion is a trend, style lives within a person’.
One of styles from which I draw the most influence is ‘Scandi‘. The clean, simple and stylish look always catches my eye in magazines. Whilst I know this look wouldn’t work exclusively in my home, I still admire and draw inspiration from it.

You’ve got the shelves, now you need some inspiration on to style them! Look no further than here for tips on how to make your shelves look super chic.
Display your art
For an interesting way to display your framed prints or pictures, why not try an overlapping collage.
This a great idea if you don’t fancy the commitment of putting all those holes in the wall. Get fed up easily with your decor? Not a problem, simple to switch!
Curate your favourites
There is nothing more interesting than an array of different objects grouped together. Mix textures, colours and all those favourite bits and pieces you have picked up over the years.
I have thought a lot about adding shelves to my kitchen as I decided against upper cupboards to add a feeling of space. Though, the more I see beautifully put together shelves, the more I sway a little more to the idea!
I love the idea of having herbs and interesting pottery mixed in between. Pretty and practical!
Organise Your Wardrobe
You don’t need to spend a fortune to add shelves to a dressing room, thank goodness for ikea!
In my dressing room I have the Lack shelves to store my shoes and Billy bookcase for scarves, bags etc but I still have everything organised into boxes to keep it looking tidy.
