HOME TRENDS: Copper

Home February 23rd, 2015 — by:

It seem like everyone is adding a bit of copper into their homes these days. Hop on board with one of our favorite trends of 2015.

We’re coveting this near pair of grand scale English 19th century copper glazed street lanterns. Is there anything better than an antique oversized lantern? We don’t think so.

The CMK Copper Jubilee Moulds are inspired by 19th century, delicately detailed vintage moulds. Made of a heavy gauge copper and lined with tin, these moulds can be used to shape puddings, jellies, entrées, pâtés, butters and even chocolates. Perfect for your next gathering!

These copper mugs are perfect for sipping the drink du jour. If you feel like Moscow Mules have made an appearance on every trendy drink menu in the past year then you’re right! People can’t get enough of the refreshing drink and its shiny vessel.

Iris & Co’s African Currency Statues are sure to be a conversation piece. They even have a modern feel despite their ancient origins.

Copper is lovely, but copper with patina is downright irresistable. This repousse sculpture would make a lovely statement piece above a mantle or your favorite chest.

This Heritage Handcrafted sink is truly one of a kind. Each one is made by hand from a reclaimed Whiskey Barrel with copper details. We think this would be such a standout in a bar area or wine cellar.

Sunny Side Up

While most of the country is suffering from depressingly cold bouts of weather, we’re attempting to stay optimistic and focus on all things sunny and bright. Check out some of our best wishful thinking…

This easy breezy number from Letarte is great as a coverup or for running your errands on a hot summer’s day.

Get literal sunshine with August Morgan’s cheery hand towels.

Over Under’s yellow necktie is ideal for Easter and other warmer holiday gatherings.

Hello Sunshine! Send a letter to a pal that needs some rays as badly as you do. It will brighten their day.

“Clearly” the tote of choice for beach babes everywhere.  Think of Bardot or Jackie when you walk the quaint international resort avenues and you can be sure you are one of a kind!

While we may be craving the sun’s rays we’d prefer to skip the skin damage. Coverup with Chantecaille’s SPF 50 for full protection… you wont regret it.

We’re thrilled to introduce Over Under Clothing on Taigan!

Get distracted by our favorite shiny objects…

This metallic fold over clutch goes with everything. Jeans? No problem. Cocktail dress? Sure.

The Gold Geo Studs are handmade from clay. We love the geometric shape for added interest.

 

 

The Bling Tote in silver and navy is perfect for a day poolside. It’s lined with marine-grade Sunbrella canvas and hand antiqued, giving it depth and a variety of tones. Think Palm Beach and Capri.

The Kay Layering Necklace is one of our best sellers. This version is made of vintage brass and slate gray links.

Bring your shine to the beach with this metallic crochet coverup from Letarte. The starfish motif is perfection.
