Entries in copper (6)
I just wanted to quickly thank Sandra, the 3 Jessica's, Barbara, Erin, and Morag for the donations sent yesterday for Agnes' vet bills. Much appreciated. And as much as I hate to ask again, if anyone is able to spare a few bucks to help get little Agnes up to snuff so she can live the rest of her life healthy and in a loving home, details are in yesterday's post. I swear I won't ask again - my last desperate plea.
I love anything copper, so this bathroom with exposed copper piping is going into my inspiration folder. LOVE IT!!! Via Karhard Architektur.
Situated in a 100 year old building in Istanbul is the boutique hotel, Karaköy Rooms. The elegant renovation by Turkish design firm RunArchitecture is a modern take on a once grand past. White walls, often with dark grey ceilings, are balanced by wooden floors. Where original mouldings are missing they are simply replaced or referenced with paint. Perhaps the standout feature of each room is the exposed copper piping that carries the electrical supply. Simply modern and historically fabulous.
A couple of weeks ago I mentioned my lighting obsession (lamp trampness) and blogged some pendants bedside.Today I thought I'd feature a round-up of one of my favourite light fixtures - Tom Dixon's copper shade pendant. OMG this light fixture is HOT. The gorgeous copper colour (forget the bronze or the mirror ball, it's got to be copper), the reflective shine, the simplicity....it's to die for. And I don't own one. YET. But I will. Because I have to.
