Metallics - Copper is here to stay!

Copper first sprang back onto the scene, when in 2015 Copper Blush was announced as the Pantone Colour of the Year. Since then it's been a continual presence in the industry. The soft, balanced tones have made their way into fashion too, especially in jewellery, where Rose Gold is the new 'must have' hue.

The softness that comes from a metallic copper makes this an easy addition to fit into most rooms, in fact we have yet to find a room that we can't squeeze copper into.

Here at Cinnamon Bay we find the easiest way to include this key colour is with lighting. From industrial kitchens to scandi bedrooms, copper lighting is one of this years biggest trends. We love scandi brand Light & Living, who hail from the Netherlands. Originally a company that produced lampshades, they are experts in the lighting game and know how to enhance any room. From table lamps to ceiling pendants they are our 'go to' for any lighting needs. The pick of their 'copper crop' from the brand new Spring Summer 2016 collection, is the beautiful Yara ceiling pendant made from copper with a contrast black cable and copper ceiling rose. This little beauty can hang anywhere, my inspriration right now is to make these into hanging bedside lights.

If I still haven't caught your eye, you can test the water and see how copper fits into your decor with our Ember and Resin soy wax candle. Made over in the USA, these soy wax candles burn really efficiently, leaving next to no residue. This allows you to re-use and recycle the beautiful containers, long after the candle has finished burning, bonus!
