Color Friday is: Copper!

19 Aug

I don’t know if it’s the fact that I’m feeling so tired of the scorching summer temperatures and yearning for Fall or what, but I am loving all things copper lately!  I find copper to be a shade that evokes the natural feel of the fall leaves, while not being too earthy: it’s got shine! Take a look for yourself at some of my lovely copper finds. Enjoy!

Kendall Design (image via covetstudio.com); Barbara Cosgrove Copper Pendant Light, (image via Clayton Gray Home).

 

I haven’t featured any of the gorgeous aqua patina that copper often exhibits, so perhaps I’ll save that for another Color Friday. Have a great weekend!

    It is a color that conveys a feeling of warmth, honesty, and wholesomeness.

      I’ve never thought of warmth and honesty before, but those are both great copper connotations!
