HOWTODECORATEWITHCOPPER Metallics are in, and perhaps the most “in” metallic of the moment is copper. Copper lighting draws the eyes and pairs well with a light colour scheme as it becomes the “pop” in a neutral room. Textured copper mugs transform the sleek metal into a rustic accent, especially when displayed on open kitchen shelving. If you want to go bold, try wallpaper etched with a copper effect, which creates the perfect backdrop for white or light grey furniture. And know that copper doesn’t have to show up only in its metallic form. Copper coloured furniture and accessories still add the warm glow of the actual metal, but with added softness of a sink-in-worthy couch or a fuzzy throw blanket.

THREETRAVELDESTINATIONSFORARTLOVERS If you’re an art lover who loves to travel, you may have already been to one or two of the most well known cities in art and architecture. Wondering where to go next? Try one of these cultural meccas on your next (or first) art-seeking journey. Mexico City, Mexico. Famous artist Frida Kahlo once called Mexico City home and the city’s large collection of her work is a huge draw. Aside from Kahlo’s works, there seems to be an art gallery on nearly every corner. If you’re into ancient art, the area’s Aztec relics are a must-see. Beijing, China. Beijing’s art scene is opening up right alongside the rest of the country after a history of relative seclusion. The city’s famed 798 Art District is housed in an ex-military facility and includes a mix of galleries, shops, studios and performance spaces.

Melbourne, Australia. Beautiful weather means much of Melbourne’s artwork is located outside. The city is a graffiti lover’s dream, with city authorities actively encouraging artists to decorate several of the buildings. Visit Hosier Lane, a “graffiti tolerance zone” to snap some drool-worthy social media shots in front of the famed spray-painted walls.
