You know how sometimes you just fall in love with something, even something that you passed right by only a few years ago? That is how my love affair with copper is. I am crushing on it… hard. So in love that I’m looking for more vintage pieces to buy – I seriously can’t get enough! Which is funny, because about five years ago I had the chance to buy a copper tea kettle at a fantastic price, and I turned it down! Of course today, I’d be snatching that up as quickly as possible!
Not only is copper back “in” – which is great, because it makes it that much easier to find, but decorating with copper is perfect for fall! It adds warmth and patina, and mixes beautifully with all those warm autumnal colors.
I’ve been getting a lot of questions on Instagram about some of my vintage pieces, as well as some readers inquiring about the adorable copper votives I used in my fall mantel last month. So today I thought I’d talk about how I’ve been decorating with copper, as well as where I’ve found some of my favorite pieces. I love any copper, but the vintage pieces really have my heart. I love their patina, and the fact that they aren’t perfect makes them even better!
It all started with my romantic fall mantel that I shared last month. There were so many people asking about these adorable votives from Pottery Barn! I bought about ten of them I think, in different shapes and sizes, and I just can’t get enough of them! They are so versatile, and I’ve since used them in every area of the house, as well as in my first Thanksgiving tablescape.
My very first copper pot was this one that I bought a few years back. It’s not vintage, or even French, but it was the beginning of my love affair.
Then last year I found some great vintage French copper pots that I love! How charming are those handles?!
I think I need a few more though! 😉 Via Good Housekeeping.
This little French pitcher was a new purchase this year. I found this on Etsy, and I’m seriously in love!
My copper mugs come out every fall and winter. They’re great as a little vase for a few flowers, too.
The little vintage plant mister was probably my very first copper piece! I think I bought it about three years ago at an antique mall.
If you didn’t see my Thanksgiving tablescape that I shared last week, you can find that here.
I hope I’ve given you some inspiration for decorating with copper in your own home! And if you’re as crazy about copper as I am, I’ve found some great pieces for you! Of course, those Pottery Barn votives are here 😉 but I also found lots of other items, as well as some great vintage pieces!
