The Home Edit: Copper & MarbleIf you are into home decor at all, or into Pinterest for that mater, you will probably have noticed two things: copper & marble. The combination or indeed each of them solo have been creeping into home decor magazines, blogs & exhibitions slowly but steadily and have now (thank goodness!!!) arrived on the high street.

The Home Edit: Copper & Marble

I hate saying I'm obsessed with something but... I'm obsessed! I just cannot help myself and if someone doesn't stop me soon my house, that I am currently decorating, will end up entirely drowned copper and marble pieces. It doesn't help that the more budget-friendly interior shops like H&M Home, made.com & West Elm have jumped on the bandwagon and are offering all things copper & marble for those of us on a budget.

To me this combo is perfect. Like gin & tonic, bread & butter, beauty & the beast... it just goes! I adore the coolness and calmness of the marble, it looks very elegant and serene. The warmth and gleam of copper is the perfect accompaniment for it and balances everything perfectly.

The Copper Collection

Like most people, I can't begin a morning without a cup of coffee, partly because of the much needed caffeine but most of all because making it is a bit of a ritual to me and feels therapeutic. I used to make my coffee in a very noisy machine at home which was great but ever since I have discovered The Copper Collection I have been loving filtered coffee and my gorgeous copper stand looks fab in my kitchen! Did I mention the stand is copper?!!

The talented ladies behind The Copper Collection, Danielle & Deirbhile, create hand crafted pour over / filtered coffee stands for coffee shops, at home baristas and lovers of modern lifestyle and decor. Copper is all the rage in interior design at the moment and the coffee stands will make your kitchen look instantly stylish. They also make fantastic birthday / wedding / house warming gifts.

The brewing of filtered coffee comes from Japan and is a lovely process. It doesn't take long and it produces a wonderful, flavourful cup of coffee. I love how tactile the whole experience is!
