7 simple ideas for enjoying copper in your home

Are you as in love with copper as I am? 

There are so many ways to enjoy that rich elegant copper glow in your home and everyday. 
And since I may have just ordered another piece of copper for the kitchen- 
(ahem... huge soup pot- I am sooo excited)
I have copper love on my mind. 
I thought I would share a few of my favorite ideas for using 
and enjoying copper everyday in different ways.

#1. For your flatware 

I love that flatware is available in old vintage silver, gold and yes, even copper. Copper flatware on the table adds a whole new element to a basic setting. 

#2. On open shelves

Yes- an autumn photo- but it shows how easy it is to decorate a shelf or cupboard with those delicious copper bits any time of the year. 

You can use just a little bit of copper like mugs and larger pieces for more impact- and switch those pumpkins for pears or artichokes for other times of the year.

Copper mugs make perfect little vases marching down a table. They add a warm charm anytime of the year. 

#4. Behind the range 

Because... why not?  :)

Just a couple of pieces will do to add a bit of warmth and interest to a bare wall. 

#7. On the counter 

And if you love copper everything - you can add a copper mixer to the kitchen - or a copper French press for your coffee. And you can also use a simple vintage copper strainer on the counter for holding things like fruit or veggies while doing double duty while looking good.

Those are just a few ideas for using copper in your home. 
And a favorite source for pots and pans?
Yes indeed.
Keep an eye on their inventory-they get some amazing French and Italian copper 
pots and pans and great prices.

Speaking of TJMaxx... I am off to HomeGoods this morning for a fun project
and will share some snippets of what is catching my eye on IG stories if you want to tune in. 
Find me on IG

Come back tomorrow morning for a delicious blackberry pie recipe that is so easy you won't believe it- and sharing the details on that flower topped crust as well.

Happy Wednesday everyone. 


  1. I think they look amazing,but aren't they hard to clean? Not that I have ever had any,just wondered. Lovely photos

  2. I use a copper fry pan almost daily. Absolutely love the way it performs. I've heard many times one of the must haves in copper is a soup pot. I don't have one yet, but supposedly it's the best for marrying all the flavors together. You'll have to let us know and maybe share some of your soup recipes:)

  3. I love copper ahem you got me started....I just never thought about using it here and there. Thank You for the you can use it out all year long. I was just struggling with that very should I just use during fall and winter, but I really love it.
