…Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens…
(My Favorite Things, Rodgers and Hammerstein)
Copper is one of my favorite colors because it has such an old romantic feel to it, of tradition, and bygone days when parents read aloud bedtime stories, when time spent together meant conversations, real emotional connections, a meeting of minds and hearts.
Copper – a reddish-brown color, like skin that has been touched by the sun for days on end. Not as shiny as gold or silver, its patina nevertheless gives any room a tasteful elegance and style.
Can such an old-world color fit in this day and age? YES!

Feast your eyes on these palettes. And if you want your space to exude a quiet sophistication, paint your walls with any of these base colors, and get yourself a touch of copper.
Tip: Have the real deal in your living space. Get yourself a copper lamp, a stool, or other furnishings because having that metallic gleam adds to the textures found in the space, and gives it an extravagant flair.
