The last few months I have been obsessed with copper accessories and everything that even resembles rose gold. When I redecorated my bedroom last year I went with colours that I knew would go with most shades and so lately I decided to go full out copper...well not full out but I have been adding some copper accents around the room and thought I would show you in a little post.
I started off by adding a copper bedside table and then build around that. I wanted something clean looking and not too tacky as some gold/ copper accessories can look a little tacky and not very pleasing to the eye. The light is from Dunnes and cost €20 I like that it is tall so it doesn't crowd the table and also the white shade matches the white in my room such as my wall frames and my lampshade on the ceiling. I then added a copper frame which is also from Dunnes. I swear they have the best homewear at the moment. Its rose gold heaven. The frame holds a picture of my new nephew which I have blurred out (for this picture) but I added a white border on the picture to match the white in the room and to break up the gold.
Then comes the little extras, I used my Ikea white tray to be the contrast then added a little gold vase/candle holder from Carraig Donn and this usually holds candles but lately I have just left it empty to act as more of a 'for show' item. I also included some gold toned perfume bottles to just add more colour. I got the flower pot from Primark and its actually a pen holder, coming in at €2.50 it was a total bargain and I think it looks nice and simple and when I am fed up of the flowers I can use it to store my makeup brushes.
Lastly I set up a tray with my most used items and I tried to include some rose toned makeup products. I just included a blush, lipstick and some nail polishes that I love and then a candle from Primark/Pennys and viola a simple way to include some copper in a room without going overboard. Makeup is a great way to display some colour and also handy if you reach for that product all the time as its always at arms reach. Its a win win really either way.
So there is my little bedroom update. I am so obsessed with decor and always trying new colour schemes in my bedroom so expect more of these posts in the future.
Have you got a copper obsession?
(the light was recently bought and still in stores but not online, just a little heads up if you like it)
