I’ve been obsessed with the colour rose gold for quite some time now, but seeing as the 2016 Pantone colour of the year is rose quartz, (see here) I thought it would be good timing to put together a small collage of beautiful copper-coloured pieces.
The unique blend of copper and gold to make the popular blush pink colour has often meant that rose gold has been seen as quite feminine. Hence, its growing appearance in everything from jewellery to handbags and even makeup seems precedented. But my predictions for the future are that coppery tones will continue to grow in popularity and could even become a new staple neutral shade. Particularly when combined with wooden accents and grey tones, layered metallics like copper look sleek and elegant, but in an uncontrived way.
I’m looking forward to seeing more of this beautiful, chalky pink shade. I love how it is such an understated shade – not quite pink but not quite gold either, it has the potential to look cosy and clean, sophisticated but neutral, all at once.
Thanks for reading,
