Get The Look: Down To Earth

Written on 21st August 2020

While our social media followers are still showing a lot of love for grey, we’re also seeing a new set of shades emerge, ones that feel calming, grounding, warming and nurturing – like a lovely cup of tea or a cosy jumper. We’re talking about earth tones: neutral taupes, stones and sands, plus rich terracottas and ochres, which join forces to create inviting spaces you’ll never want to leave.

The Palette

Natural textures like clay, wood, rattan, and seagrass can play a big part in creating a grounded, earthy feel in a space, but colours are undoubtedly the stars of the show. Lighter, brown-based neutrals like Jitney and Stony Ground are soft enough to be taken across walls and ceilings, creating an enveloping feel that’s perfect for bedrooms, while bolder India Yellow has a luxurious feel that works wonders in small living rooms.
