Move over brass — copper is back! This warm, rustic metallic element is trending. Whether used in sinks, lighting fixtures, hardware or home accessories, copper accents bring a sophisticated glamour to a space and are perfect paired with neutral palettes. Here are a few of my current copper favorites.

5 Favorites :: Walker Zanger Pinterest Board

Simplified Bee Pinterest Board for Walker Zanger

For the past week I’ve had the pleasure of working with Walker Zanger on creating the Pinterest board, Simplified Bee’s Inspirations. You will have to check it out. It’s loaded with beautiful images inspired by the gorgeous patterns, colors and textures found throughout the Walker Zanger’s exceptional stone and tile collections.

Walker Zanger // Luxe Stone & Tile Designs

From the sophisticated, yet simple Sterling Row to worldy, yet timeless Villa D’Oro, I was mesmerized by the vast and varied collections offered. Throughout the pinning process, I tried to pair a Walker Zanger stone or tile with a beautiful interior, vignette or quote. The process was so fun and had me dreaming up spaces throughout the home featuring these exquisite collections. Here are my favorites from the pinboard:

If you are lucky enough to be in Las Vegas this week for this year’s Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), you will have to drop by Walker Zanger’s booth (S7023 – South Hall in the Las Vegas Convention Center). In addition to previewing hundreds of new tile and stone products from their 2015 collections, you have the opportunity to meet the design team behind the soon-to-be released tile collaboration with Robert A. M. Stern Architects.

happy decorating,

cristin
