Rethinking your kitchen's styling? Move over stainless steel, copper is the metal of the moment, and what better place to inject some personality into your kitchen

Whether you've got a modern or traditional space, splashes of copper will add warmth and glamour for an instant on-trend look. And fortunately for us copper fiends, everything from cutlery to cocktail shakers can be found in our favourite metal.

Combine with either dark moody tones for drama and sophistication, or bright neutrals for a pretty look.

French designers at La Cafetière have exquisitely designed this stovetop coffee pot, combining rustic charm with a chic contemporary look. Buy a set of copper mugs too for a copper coffee-party (they are great for serving up a Moscow mule when you need a stronger brew).
