On Trend: Mining Copper

Lately, the rosy warm tones of copper have been catching my eye. I have noticed it gracing details on the pages of magazines, Pinterest and store shelves. This past week, I saw the copper moon (shown above) in the window of one of my favorite, Long Beach, California boutiques, Luna. The following day, when I found copper mugs and accessories at Target I knew the trend had reached a tipping point.

To get the burnished glow without a major investment, consider going DIY and using metallic copper spray paint (available in stores such as Wal-Mart, Michael's, and Lowe's).

The possibilities are endless...

 it's gone mainstream.
