Move Over, Brass Accents. Copper Is Making an Entrance

The allure of copper is beautiful in any season, but autumn may be the perfect time to warm your interiors with captivating coppery tones.

In addition to their aesthetic quality, “hand-hammered copper products have many practical attributes,” says Naomi Nelson, founder and CEO of Native Trails. “Studies prove that copper itself kills harmful bacteria, a true benefit in the kitchen and bath.” Hand-hammered copper is also among the most durable materials available, she adds. “The thick gauge and luxurious texture of hammered copper resists signs of wear.”

Whether you’re looking to embrace the copper trend with large statement pieces in the kitchen and bath or on a smaller scale by way of decorative accents and accessories, check out some of the newest releases from product manufacturers that are either made of copper or are copper-colored, aimed at bringing a unique luster inside the home.
