Copper Accents for the Kitchen and Bath

We’re big fans of copper—both the rosy shine of new copper and the blue and green shades it takes on when it’s old and oxidized. Too much of it might look a little garish, but judicious copper accents can really warm up a kitchen or bathroom. More examples after the jump…

Large copper fixtures like sinks and range hoods can be prohibitively expensive, but lining a cabinet or a shelf with a sheet of hammered copper is a cheaper, simpler way to bring a slice of copper into your kitchen or bath.

Small appliances, accessories, and hardware are increasingly available in copper finishes too. We love these vintage canisters from Laurel Leaf Farm. This particular set has been sold, but we found similar canisters for sale on ebay.
