Colour crush: Copper & Blush

11/09/2014
copper and blush accents

I am seeing copper and shades of pink everywhere. From stationery and cake decor to kitchens and living rooms. I am loving it. What a pretty pair they make.

Metallics of all kinds are very much on trend, but copper is really catching my eye. Well-known for it’s efficient conductivity of heat, copper provides a perception of warmth as we head towards the cooler months. We are not quite there yet in Dubai – this week has been particularly stifling – but can I just say a big ‘yeah baby’ to the mere mention of cooler weather!

Introducing a beautiful blush backdrop in your home is as easy as selecting Bliss from Jotun’s Spring/Summer 2014 paint collection.

Then add a touch of luxe with tres chic copper accessories, and voilà! You’ve got the look.

I am seriously taken with how beautiful copper looks when combined with pastels and neutral shades. Take this room, for example. I love it’s calm color palette but don’t you think the addition of the copper pendant lamp takes the ‘wow factor’ factor up a notch?

    • So enjoying early walks and slow mornings with the kids - and ever conscious that there are so few mornings like this left before its back to school and work and busy routines. Savouring it all. We decided to go Dutch for brekkie this morning with some pancakes made from @woolworths_sa gluten free ready mix. They were delish!! Do yourself a favour and get some. Also, while you're spoiling yourself, find someone who looks at you like my kids look at pancakes.
    • So glad I went with dark lower cabinets in this kitchen. I realised this morning, as we were packing for a quick trip to Zuka, that I've posted barely any pics of #hawkesholidayhome since I've been here. Such a weirdo. Happy Saturday y'all! .

    • Impromptu sundowners this evening with @sweetsecrets.dubai and co. Beaut!
    • I arrived in South Africa with a laundry list of things I wanted to do / get done while I was here. Anyone want to attempt a guess on how many of those things I've actually accomplished? ... anyone?

    • This might just be the scene of an afternoon nap. Let's see...
    • So many beautiful and inspiring homes to see on my morning walk. I just love the pretty creeper on this wall. And I hope the owner doesn't find me super creepy for admiring it 🙈🤔😊
    • Quite possibly my favourite corner of #hawkesholidayhome
    • I can't believe we are already on the downward slide towards the end of summer. I've still got some time left in South Africa, but my head is back 'home' in Dubai as @liveloudgirl and I are in full planning mode for our next @fronteriors release. This is my favourite cabinet in the current collection - can you guess which IKEA frames are behind it? And do you have a favourite?

Ps: have a peek at the other looks for this frame on my stories
    • Treated myself to a little spa moment at @laura_channing_spa this morning. Still high-fiving myself for that smart decision. This little gem is a literal 3 minute walk from our front door and yet it always feels like I've escaped somewhere far away. The setting is so pretty and the service is amazing. It's an amazing perk to staying at #hawkesholidayhome
