Yup, the warm metallics are still going strong. This is the trend that just won't quit, but that's ok because we love it. This fall, try incorporating some gold, brass, or copper accents into your home design for a rich yet not too opulent look. Check out more fall design trends like Warm Woods and Comfortable Kitchens.

Copper Black Mugs from welovekaoru

We first came across ceramist and designer Kaoru Parry of welovekaoru in London in 2011 at the Shoreditch collective Luna & Curious. In addition to offering a lovely spot of afternoon tea to a weary traveler, Parry is also deeply invested in the cups, saucers, and pots her hospitality comes in. At welovekaoru, she applies her modernist sensibilities to traditional bone china manufacture centered in Stoke-on-Trent, England. Copper Black is her new line of mugs which debuted earlier this week at Pulse in London. Here's a look at them and a few of our favorites from the welovekaoru archive.

Just as brass was au courant with designers last year, expect to see more of this material in furniture and products in the coming months (our roving editors have already spotted it in a few places during the 2013 Salone Internazionale del Mobile). In the slideshow that follows, we've gathered a few of our favorite examples from the Dwell archive that show how versatile copper can be.

zimmerman residence

Garden Pavilion, Seattle

When the Zimmerman family settled in Seattle, Washington, in the late 1990s they bought a 1,100-square-foot Craftsman built in the 1920s. Fast-forward to today. Not wanting to leave their beloved neighborhood, but hurting for space, they enlisted the help of local design-build firm Ninebark to create a separate living area. Working from sketches that the residents had from their uncle, Gary Schoemaker, an architect in New York, Ninebark realized a refined granny flat that serves as a playroom, office, and guesthouse for visitors, complete with a kitchenette and full bathroom.
