I grew up in a home where brass and copper graced all the parts of the home, predominantly the kitchen. While brass can still be found in some households only as a decor piece. Copper despite having enormous useful properties is a completely forgotten metal now. In today’s blog, I would like to draw your attention to the copper and wish to revive the lost charm of copper. We need to change our mindsets and should embrace this rosy gold metal in our day to day life for its goodness. Hence I am sharing some easiest ways to incorporate copper into home decor.

Mule mug is the best example of it. There are enormous ways you can incorporate copper in a kitchen. In olden days kitchen shelves full of copper vessels and utensils was a common sight.

In my family, we make sure that we use copper tumblers to drink water throughout the day to get our daily requirement of copper.
