5 Affordable Ways to Decorate with Copper

No doubt about it–copper is pretty as penny.  It adds shine, texture and looks great in interiors of any style from traditional to modern. However, unless you’re into collecting pennies like mad (as these kids must have been) for a rather time-consuming DIY project, copper decor can be a pricey way to go.  Unless you think outside the box…

Shimmering Starburst napkin rings add a touch of copper glam for just $19.80 (set/4).

Give cabinetry an instant update with hand-crafted, weathered copper Vineyard pulls.

This Oxidized Copper Wall Mount light is a classic look that dresses up a foyer or bathroom.  Plus, it’s UL rated for damp spaces (important to confirm when shopping for bathroom lighting).

The Nest II sink qualifies as functional art and then some. Made of 16 gauge pure copper, it’s surrounded by a brushed nickel modernist “nest.”  The sink also includes recyclable materials and is naturally antibacterial–a plus for anything in the bathroom.

I know designers who’d trade their mother (or seriously consider it) for a Brushed Copper Range Hood like this.  And it’s easy to see why.

True, the sink and range hood will cost you more than a penny or two but I believe they are investment worthy.  Why?  Every home needs one or two “Wow!” focal points and both are clearly that.  They’re also the type of thing you can’t really afford not to add because they’ll increase the resale value of your home.  Of this I know because the strategy worked for me when I sold my home to buy another last Fall.
