Copper was initially used for the conduction of heat and electricity — not exactly the most inspiring association when thinking about stocking your future home with your husband-to-be. But before you go ahead and create a wedding registry sans copper goods, check out how some of our favorite designers are using the rosy metal.
From industrial looking décor accents to beautiful, pro-quality cookware, you can add an influx of copper nearly anywhere in your new home. We even found a traditional kitchen mixer in the stylish metallic tone, along with copper planters, mugs, and furniture.
Aside from being a high-quality metal (professional chefs do favor copper cookware), it's also a trendy tone. Similar to rose gold, copper is available in varying shades, so you can customize your registry picks to suit your particular style. Think penny-hued for a traditional vibe, pinkish tones for romantic couples, and deeper bronze shades if you prefer a modern look.
Thanks to its versatility, copper will warm up a home in unexpected ways with its sleek, orangey tones, so don't be afraid to look past the silver and gold when building your registry.
