Traditionally terracotta can be spotted in the kitchens and outdoors areas of French and Mediterranean homes, however it’s now having a big impact on Western design.
The earthy colour of terracotta, whether it be in wall of floor tiles, a feature wall, statement pieces or pots, brings a warmth to indoor and outdoor areas alike, and compliments both rustic, more traditionally-styled, as well as contemporary homes.
Terracotta isn’t the only organic material to be making a splash this year.
Following in its footsteps, cork, marble, slate and greenery (fake or real) are being teamed with contemporary fixtures to bring warmth to the home.
While cork and plants are being seen as both a decorative and functional addition, materials such as marble and slate are perfect for bringing natural beauty into the home.
While mixing heavily patterned items was once considered busy and over the top, mixed patterns in art and home décor are bringing business back into our homes in a way that really works.
From bedspreads to wall art, floor rugs, couch throws and dining ware, mixed patterns are bringing life and vibrancy back to homes, where it has often been lost to industrial, solid colours and textures.
