As readers of my blog, I think you all know my obsession with copper and whenever I go to events I'm known as the girl with the copper kitchen! For me it's not about copper being a 'trendy' material, for me it is a living material that I adore for the following reasons; it is a little more raw than brass and gold, it ages into something more beautiful than when it started and is so complimentary for so many other colours, in particular those scandi tones I adore. So when Amara, one of my favourite interior stores, asked me to pull together my favourite pieces from their copper interiors collection and style the products up in Number Five, the girl with the copper worktop couldn't say no could she?
I chose this beautiful and versatile Pols Potten stool in copper. I love the shape and love that it looked fantastic in many different rooms inside Number Five. It looks beautiful as a side table to pop towels on in the bathroom. I love the grey and copper against the bright white of the bathroom suite.
It looks stunning and is a great piece of design in my newly created reading nook. Perfect place for a cup of tea and a candle. I also love how wonderful the copper looks against my vintage Persian rug.
And finally, not an area you usually see at Number Five, because I'm not quite happy with the way this room looks at the moment, but the stool looks incredibly luxurious in snug room next to the turquoise velvet of the sofa
I decided to add a few copper pieces to the bedroom; the room has blush walls and white or grey everything else, so to add a metallic element just made the whole room come alive. I picked this amazing lamp from Amara's own collection, this cushion again from Amara's collection and a beautiful bud vase from the man who made copper come alive again, Tom Dixon.
Finally, I couldn't do this without adding some additional copper pieces to the kitchen.
I am a sucker for anything Tom Dixon, and his hand wash and hand cream in the London scent which is my fave meant I had to style them up on my kitchen sink! It is like they were meant to be!
Finally, I've always lusted over a Dualit Kettle but never had the budget to buy one. This just looked so stunning in the tea making corner of the kitchen!
