A penny for your thoughts


I love using metal in design and I love to mix metals. One of my favorites is Copper. 
It looks good with EVERYTHING. 

If I saw this door, I would absolutely have to enter it...

I mean what could be on the other side, besides a lot of STYLE!!!
My Villa Life

A copper backsplash, counters and green cabinets... This is amazing!

If you look closely, you will see the stainless range.
I am not the only one who likes to mix it Up!

Again, copper mixed with stainless... and white this time!
This is so chic

Copper Walls, I can't even!

This application is something that I have been trying to convince clients to try for years.
It is a little pricey, but a little amazing too! 
Please, Please, Please someone let me try this!!!

I am always on the lookout for copper while shopping Estate Sales and Antique Stores.
I got a steal with this Found Vintage Copper Pot. I used it in the bathroom
 I designed for the Symphony Designer House Spring of 2014

In my client's Kitchen, we had this custom copper hood made to coordinate with the
 hammered copper apron front sink and other copper accents.
We also used stainless steel, brass and oil rubbed bronze.
