The Art of Display | Copper Kitchen Accents

It's true that the rose gold and copper accent trend doesn't seem to be going anywhere. I believe that as our access to different things online grows so does the longevity of trends and finishes. I lovingly remember Ray Staples, a designer out of Toronto exclaiming that we could mix woods in interiors because "all the trees in the forest get along". I feel the same about mixing metals. I love how copper adds a glimmer of warmth to marble and cool metal tones, it looks incredibly distinguished with black and is so pretty against white.
I've done a serious round up of all of the best rose gold/copper accents and have included ways in which to incorporate them in your home. The great thing is that you don't necessarily need to invest a lot to get the desired look. Pick and choose your accents and layer in as much or as little as you like. There is no wrong look when it comes to adding.
In my kitchen I've had measuring spoons and cups, knives, candles and a bud vase for some time now. I haven't tired of them so I recently added new cooking/serving utensils a bodum coffee maker (which I loooove) and several other goodies.

In the lower image I deliberately went with split height salt and pepper mills. This way the pepper creates more of a focal point and visual interest. The rose gold knife block has been a favourite addition given it's functionality and beauty. I get so many compliments on them. 


I love using trays as a foundation to items on counter display. They ground things and make them appear less busy. They're also a practical choice for cleanup.


This copper Bodum was a splurge purchase last weekend. I love indulging in ways to make the mundane a little more appealing. My regular plug in coffee maker is anything but pretty but this whole set up is making mornings that much more enjoyable. 
Below I've included several more copper accents. Many of them are on my wish list.

I love how you store your spices. Can you tell me where you got them. I think I might invest in those knives as well. I'm really liking copper these days!

I love the glass vase you used to store your utensils. Where did you find it?

Erica Cook said...

Hi Janet! Thank you. It's actually from a local flower show, Amborella floral.

Loved this post and your copper picks, Erica! Also, we have the same copper Bodum. Believe it or not, my boyfriend picked out about 6 months ago and he copper was totally his idea -- he french presses for us on weekends and we love it! You have a beautiful home. :)

I don't know if I'm completely overlooking it, but where did you get the knife set and block? I am in love with that thing!
