Collecting Copper

Copper Cookware Hung on the Wall - The Inspired Room

Hello, friends! Recently I wrote a post about our new leather sofa and how it fits in with the copper and wood in our home. So today I thought I would show you a couple pieces of my copper collection! While you might think copper is kind of an expensive thing to collect, it really hasn’t been! My copper pots, colander, tea kettle, pans and bowl were bargains, they came from estate sales and yard sales! I’ve always hung pieces of my copper collection in my kitchens as a decorative element on the wall or on a pot rack. I really love the patina of copper, don’t you?

Awhile back I realized my copper pots were still out in the garage (where everything I didn’t know what to do with went when we moved here, um, six years ago, gah!). So, I brought them in and found a great spot for a couple of them on the wall in the dining room. Not only does the copper look great with our copper-topped dining room light, I think it looks really pretty with the wood floors, too. Copper is such a lovely warm metal. It adds a nice richness to a room and a little shine to contrast with the wood.

My copper and brass teakettle has been with me a long time too. My favorite accessories are always the things I’ve collected over time. It takes awhile to build up a collection but that’s part of the fun!

I don’t have a copper KitchenAid mixer, I haven’t run across any of those on my usual secondhand hunts :)

Do you have any copper in your home?
