Partial to patina – part 1

Is it just me, or is patinated copper the absolutely most beautiful finish on the entire planet??!

Seriously, there’s something about this material that makes my knees go weak every single time I see it.  And when I found out that the legend that is John Saladino is also a fan, well there was just no going back!

Here are a few of my fave inspiration piccies right now.  Starting off with Tom Dixon’s iconic Globe Light (and its slightly trimmer oval neighbour), I am totally and utterly suckaroo’d by this LH image with the bright copper set against dark walls.

Snap:

And think it also looks rather dashing paired with wood, leather and exposed brickwork:

Love me a good copper farmhouse sink I do!

And here are a couple of slightly more trad schemes, for those of you so inclined:

Possibly the best wall cladding I have ever set my peepers on, may even beat the old reclaimed wood beaut’s I wrote about a while back…

And is a TO DIE FOR countertop also:

Ruddy hell, these tubs are seriously le bee’s knees – umm, I may or may not have posted up that RH image one hundred times before…

And copper even makes a gorgeous table or two!

Not 100% convinced this one’s copper but it’s going in anyway, my heart just skipped multiple beats:

GAAAAH!

      Haha, and that Natasha is the beauty of ‘antiqued copper’! I deffo agree re the patina – wonder what one of those Globe Lights would look like if I left it outside for a few months…?

    Hee I love that you tell your husband you’re coming home late through your blog!
    Those sinks are amazing. I saw one years ago from Kohler, it had dragons on it or something, it was really cool.
    I really like oxidised copper, after reading Hue I’ve developed a bit of appreciation for that, the turquoise is stunning. Check out the Arts & Metiers station on the Paris Metro if you like copper!

      Ooh, I like the sound of that Kohler sink. Will keep the Arts & Metiers station in mind next time I’m in Paris, thanks for the heads up!
