Colour crush: Copper & Blush

11/09/2014

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?

    • It's been a pretty slow weekend here. Hope yours has been chilled too?
    • On the blog this week, we are sharing some of our favourite digital art resources. During these times of restricted movement, it's more convenient than ever to be able to purchase artwork that can be downloaded, sent to print and frame via online framing specialists like @draftframes and delivered to your door. I'm all about the convenience factor here! Link in bio for some of our go-to's

    • My Fronteriors co-founder, @liveloudgirl and I are going to be hosting a live Q&A session over on the @fronteriors account this Sunday. If you've got any  burning questions for us - about anything from which IKEA frames we use, our suggestions for hacking your way to a unique furniture piece, to new designs or just something random you might like to know? Join us on Sunday, 24 May at 4pm UAE time.

    • I've been thinking about all the kids rooms we've designed and installed over the past few years, many of which had desks included. Unless they're kids in senior school, I usually view desks as a 'nice to have' addition if space allows. But I'm guessing those desks are getting a lot of mileage these days with Dubai schools continuing online learning until at least the end of the academic year. #crazytimes #stayhome #staysafe
    • A quiet afternoon was much needed to round off the weekend. Hope you all had a good one? Just peeking out on the left there is my new, improved @fronteriors Billy bookcase. More on that tomorrow.

    • She's been cursed with my coarse, wiry locks (that take 400 hrs to dry), if only I'd been blessed with that gorgeous colour. Suddenly wondering why I've never tried it. #hmm #maybe
    • I'm out of the house and in someone else's home and its feeling like a big adventure after so many weeks amidst the same walls. We are finally  starting to install the spaces we've designed for a family villa that we've been working on remotely for several weeks. Installation days are not what they used to be for us. This one is happening over a number of days. Fewer handymen and painters on site, masks, a safe distance and a whole lot of handwashing. Its feels strange but its definitely a step in the right direction.
    • The kitchen. It's always been the heart of the home, but over the past two months, it's been more of a command central in the home. All the cooking, baking, copious tea and coffee-making, school planning, live lesson participating, news watching (we have a TV room to the left), snack foraging.... you name it, it's been happening right here.

    • If you'd told me a few months ago that I'd spend 8 straight weeks within the confines of my home, leaving only a handful of times for essentials, I'd have laughed out loud. And that's coming from a real homebody. Life sure is unpredictable.
