Copper blush, copper orange, copper rose, copper pink... call it what you want, Copper is in again and has been named colour of the year 2015 by Dulux Colour Futures. The overarching theme for this year is 'Everyday', finding the wonderful in the normal' and the colour which ties this years individual themes together is Copper. The overall feel of the look is clay and earth blends, skin tones, old world sepia and human warmth.A sense of heat and global togetherness is created though the desert like tones and warm hues.
This is Dulux description of the colour of the year's style.
'As witnessed at global events from Stockholm and Milan to Shanghai, metallic colour tones are playing an increasingly important role in modern design.
Replacing the cool blues and greens of recent years, a warmer spectrum of pinks, reds and oranges is emerging, reflecting a more positive global outlook. As a paint translation of this trend, our research all points to this orangey copper tone. Great on its own, the colour also combines perfectly with pinks, neutrals, whites and other orange hues, as well as metallic colours such as gold.
It reflects and complements all of the major trends that we have identified for 2015: a warmth in attitude and a renewed emphasis on sharing; the natural palette of the earth, from clay tones to sunlit highlights of yellow; the skin tones that reflect human interaction and the sepia hues of the past.
It is a colour of depth and currency that combines wonderfully with the everyday.'

1. Go big- Feeling adventurous? Bring the colour with a statement wall. No fancy designs just a plain solid block of warming orange, red or pinks. Painting opposing walls in a softer or neutral colour, from the colour palette , will round the room out to fully embrace the trend. You can tone down this look if a whole wall is too much by using an ombre effect to create a sutler look but fully taking on that gorgeous copper hue.
2. Be bold with furniture- Don't want to take the plunge with a whole room or wall? You can be equally bold with copper metallic furnishings like these beautiful copper gold chairs featured in Style Me Pretty or go for a softer look with pink blush furniture such as this armoire onVTWonen
