Crazy for Copper: Will this booming design trend keep its luster?
Oh, copper. Improving the lives of humanity since the dawn of time.
Copper is the oldest ore known to mankind. It was actually discovered almost 13,000 years ago!
Copper has held many uses over the years, from spiritual ceremonies and medical procedures to jewelry, currency and even for its health benefits. The ancient Egyptians, for example, viewed having copper as a symbol of wealth and status in their society.
While copper may not be quite as revered these days, we certainly can’t get enough of the warm, metallic glow of a copper-accented kitchen. Check out these amazing copper-style ideas for some inspiration for your home decor.

While copper has a great track record in terms of it’s usefulness to humanity, the jury is still out on whether or not copper will hold its appeal for years to come or if it will join the ranks of other misguided style trends (think 80’s pastels and 70’s wood paneling). The fact remains, however, that using copper accents in your home will instantly elevate everything around it. So use it at your own risk.
