Pinterest Logo

Our color of the month for October is the deep rich color of bronze. The deepness of this color and it's metallic finish makes it perfect for the Fall season. A mixture of copper and tin, this rich and earthy color looks like a strong orange and is a member of the brown family. 


Color Pairings

Bronze is typically used as a metallic finish in home decor projects, similar to silver and gold. It's brown tones give it a rustic warmth that plays well with a variety of colors. Try pairing bronze with rich jewel tones such as a raspberry red to accentuate the warmth, or cool blues with gray undertones to soften things up. If you're looking for pops of color, get playful with a bright orange or green. 

Color History

The archeological period in which bronze was the hardest metal in widespread use is known as the Bronze Age. During the bronze age, people used bronze to create tools and sculptures until iron was discovered. The first recorded use of the word bronze as a color was in 1753, and it referred to the shiny hue of the metal.

You can view bronze items from throughout history in museums across the world. Bronze is also still used today in the production of musical instruments like bells and cymbals. Third-place medals are also commonly made with bronze, such as the third-place medals in the olympics.





Home Decor

Currently bronze is the "it" color in interior design. The dark and luxurious color makes a wonderful decorative finish for various objects and appliances, especially in kitchens. If you're looking for the perfect blend of modern sophistication and antique elegance, try adding touches of bronze to your kitchen or living room accessories.
