Emerge your senses with rich earthy tones, accents of terracotta and flashes of luxurious copper. Inspired by dramatic landscapes and rocky wastelands, this trend reflects the beauty of nature refined into one room. Tonal layering and colour blocking define the space and creates a bold impactful look with a touch of spice.
Key ingredients for the perfect look
Mink brown, white, biscuit or even slate grey walls complement punchy terracotta shades.
Don’t be afraid of adding white into the mix – it adds a clean, crisp dose of freshness into your warm scheme.
Earthy colours such as terracotta demand natural textures, so pile on the knitted cushions, patterns and throws, along with faux-fur rugs over natural wood floors for a beautifully tactile living space.
Embrace patterns and contrast – this look can take it. Two-tone walls, bright white skirting boards and ceilings to balance the warmth in between and geometric prints to jazz up plain furniture.
Finish the look with simple, plain pots and pictures in wood or natural materials – pops of slate grey or bright white will add instant depth and modernity.
