Get the Look: Terracotta Tones
In case you missed it, Terracotta is set to be a huge trend for 2018/19 and it is already starting to take over our interiors. This natural shade is earthy, rustic and ever so versatile, so it’s a great choice for an interior look that will last. The warm tones make a happy contrast to the cool, Scandi greys that are also very popular, and the whole look has us dreaming of stone villas in the blistering heat, sat under a wide brimmed straw hat (possibly with a glass of sangria in hand).
To achieve this Terracotta trend, we’ve put together a Get the Look with some of our favourite pieces. To avoid the look being too flat, you want to combine multiple textures and tones, with pops of green and foliage to add depth and personality. Succulents and cacti are the perfect indoor house plants to introduce into this interior scheme – plus they’re super easy to care for. Plant them in terracotta plant pots. If you do want to add any further elements of colour, we suggest turquoise blue – it complements terracotta beautifully and evokes a sense of the sea against the natural colours of the sandy earth.
To prevent the look from becoming too ‘themed’ clash the rustic style with modern elements, like heavy black frames and strong, statement lamps.
Introduce pattern and texture with rugs and scatter cushions, throws and wallpaper.
This look is especially effective with the use of dramatic lighting: invest in rattan ceiling shades to cast shadows around the room, the same way the sun would when it streams through a shaded tree.
