Earth Tones came from Nature directly to your interior design project. Say goodbye to the cool tones that have ruled for several years. Hues of chocolate brown, wine, olive green, and yellow ochre are all around in houses. Interior designers love replacing these warm, natural colors for a neutral on the sofa or walls.
Featured by Elle Decor as a 2020 Leading Trend for Interiors, Earth Tones are here to stay.

Besides the importance of sensorial tactility, earthy tones bring the warmth and comfort needed on a modern interior design project.
We will guide you through a selection of different shades. From indigo blue to rich brown, from terracotta to wine, be inspired by these modern and elegant earth tones interiors.
1. The Peaceful Pink
Pinks continue to prove their commercial appeal across interior products with reassuring and calming qualities.
Soft blush tones and muted apricot hues combine with rounded, curved volumes and untreated surfaces to encourage consumers to relax and unwind.
Refined sensorial tactility combines with these soft, chalky hues, adding depth to flat surfaces. Layered tone-on-tone and monochromatic hues offer a harmonious and soothing approach.
Matte tones work best for ceramic and linen, with semi-shine velvet working for upholstery.

4. Rich Brown
Consider warm and deep tones such as terracotta, beige and brown in upholstery and furniture items. Brown wallpapers can also bring the perfect feel for a living room.
The Rich Brown will allow you to design with a retro and contemporary edge.

Make bold statements by pairing black with black. Introduce surface texture and interesting contours to emphasize depth and tactility.
