Decorating with Copper
How to create a beach house look.
Have you always wanted a beach house even though you don’t live anywhere near a body of water? Or maybe you already live near the water and want to make your home look more like a beach house? Either way, you can create a relaxing, fun interior that looks like it belongs near the beach.
Beach design colors can be vibrant and tropical, calm and neutral, or nautical blue and white. Even aqua and white or orange and white can create a beach feel. You can also use lots of beiges and light blues to reflect the colors of the sand and sky.

Metallic copper can be finished in several ways – from bright and shiny looks to oxidized and rough surfaces. And copper is not just a product made from metal; it’s also a color that can be used in upholstery fabric, window fashions, and bed and table linens.
Copper looks fabulous with almost any neutral. It’s especially effective paired with blues, greens, brilliant jewel tones and silver gray. Copper is versatile too; it works well with the most modern of design styles in addition to complementing rustic looks and traditional design plans.

Think of these design elements to add in a copper tone:
– In the kitchen: stove, hood, countertops, faucets, backsplash, appliances, tiles
– In the bathroom: faucets, backsplash tiles, bathtub, sinks
– In the dining room: chandeliers, flatware, wallpaper
– In the living room: lamps, coffee table tops and end table tops, pots for indoor plants
– And in most any room: paint, upholstery fabrics, window fashions and accessories
