Current Obsession: Copper // Sweet As Mae

May 24, 2016

Hello sweeties! I love copper. Pretty much obvious if you've been following my blog, but I'm a huge sucker for anything copper or rose gold. I have a maybe too many copper/rose gold pieces in my room
and today I wanted to share a few of my favourites. Most of which are from Typo, because it is literally the hub for copper items. Kmart and The Warehouse are also great for affordable copper decor :) (P.S I apologise for slightly blurry images, I don't know what went wrong they were fine when I photographed them :/ )


Typo Rose Gold Geo Pencil Holder NZD $14.99

When it comes to home decor, one thing I love almost as much as rose gold is geometric shapes. I purchased this cute lil pencil holder last year from Typo, it's a really lovely desk item and it's geo-ness ties in beautifully with my room decor. I use this copper holder for my copper pens. And my copper pencils.  And my copper makeup brushes. You get the idea!

Typo On a Wire Frame (No Longer Available)

Another Typo favourite, this frame takes pride of place on my bedside table. I really love the wired/geometric look it gives and of course, who's gonna turn down some copper love? (I do usually have a photo in here but took it out for privacy purposes  - just focus on the copper haha!)

Typo Hexe Jewellery Tree NZD $24.99

You might remember this from my post I did about rings a few weeks back (see that post here). I like to put bracelets, rings and clips etc. in this. It might look small but actually fits a lot and I personally cannot deny the hexe design of this!

Typo Glass Hexe Copper Terrarium (No Longer Available) 

This is possibly my favourite item of the lot, mainly because I had been searching the internet for a decent, reasonably priced copper terrarium for about 3 months before this one popped up on the Typo website. It's such a lovely addition to my decor, and putting a little plant in it brings so much more life to my room. 

Kmart Marmo Marble Table Lamp NZD $24.99

Copper and marble are up there with one of my favourite style combos. I think marble is so versatile and the copper adds a bit of sophistication. Although I love the copper base and two toned stand of this lamp, the bulb is actually my favourite part! It's the epitome of a tumblr lamp, and the filament light bulb adds that vintage touch.

The Warehouse Copper Hexagon Cushion NZD $7.99

I am a sucker for cushions from The Warehouse, they're always so affordable and they have a really broad range of styles. I'm head over heels in love with this cushion, I haven't seen anything like it for a reasonable price range and it's just stunning. I love the metallic geometric shape and of course the temptation of another marble and copper duo is too much for me!


Less is more: 

When styling the copper the key is to take it slow. I know the amount of copper I own may contradict this, but trust me when it's all spread out in my bedroom it's not a copper overload (just!). Make sure to incorporate other patterns and colours into your decor so your room isn't drowned in copper.

Use a variety of copper:

There's definitely more than one shade of copper! So one thing you can do to add variety to your copper decor is to own decor in multiple shades of copper. Some items might have more of a pinky rose gold tint, while others will be more of a coppery bronze (e.g the pencil holder vs the terrarium).

Be Creative:

There's a ton of different pieces of copper decor out there so be creative when selecting your room decor. Simple things like copper mirrors, glasses, or even furniture are on the market so make sure to look into lots of different stores and websites for unique pieces.

Do you own any copper decor? 

Stay Sweet,

  1. Copper is kind of like the new black.
    It can go with most items, clothes-wise and homeward too. I have seen a Cooper terrarium previously on one of Zoe's 24 days of Vlogmas DIY videos and really wanted one so desperately!
