home: trend [ terracotta ]
Bring the warmth and comfort of one of the colours of the year, to your home – terracotta.
It’s last rise in popularity was during the 1990s and there was possibly a fair few terracotta walls on our screens in Changing Rooms but now its had a modern relaunch and using tones of it across a room from walls to furniture to small homewares can look incredibly effective.
Using the colour as a palette across an interior will bring warmth to the room.
