It's official: Earth tones are here to stay! Oftentimes, we think of summer palettes as bright pastels with splashes of ocean blue, lime green, and yellow hues; however, with colour trends shifting to earth-toned colour palettes, terracotta has become a staple in the home decor world.

Stay on trend effortlessly when you embrace this summer's hottest colour trend: terracotta. This deep summer colour is a brilliant way to spice up your light neutrals and muted shades with rich hues. Terracotta, which ranges from a dull ochre to a bolder red, has a rich, rusty undertone that invokes the warmth of baked clay. Often compared to vermilion, terracotta radiates warmth that can help you add depth to flat designs.
Now that we've established the 2023 summer colour trends forecast, you might be wondering how can I incorporate terracotta into my home design? Check out these four easy ways to blend this colour into your existing space.

Opt for terracotta-hued tiles or laminate flooring to create a natural and inviting atmosphere. These earthy tones complement a variety of interior styles, from rustic to Mediterranean, and effortlessly bring the essence of summer indoors. Whether it's a cozy living room, a breezy kitchen, or a serene bedroom, embracing terracotta-coloured flooring will undoubtedly elevate your space to new heights of seasonal charm. If you already have terracotta-coloured walls or architectural features, pair them with cooler, more understated shades of flooring to add texture and complexity to your design.
Roller Shades by Graber
To infuse your space with the colour of the season, consider using terracotta-coloured curtains or blinds that perfectly complement the natural sunlight pouring in through your windows. Opt for lightweight and sheer fabrics to create an ethereal ambiance to allow more of summer's sunshine into your home. These window treatments not only exude a sense of warmth but also evoke a soothing and tranquil atmosphere reminiscent of lazy summer days. Terracotta tones evoke the feeling of sun-kissed earth and sandy beaches, instantly transforming any room into a soft summer haven.
Get bold with your sink backsplashes and shower walls by incorporating brilliantly rich colours into your tile designs. Terracotta tile is a timeless way to add warmth to these spaces with its earth-toned colourways and organic clay-like look. Since tile comes in all types of materials, shapes, and designs, from glazed subway tiles to polished mosaic glass, you're bound to a style to suit your needs.
Perhaps one of the easiest ways to incorporate this summer colour into your designs is with small details from artwork and throw pillows to furnishing and upholstery. Add personal style with these finishing touches by selecting terracotta patterns that reflect your taste. Find a balance in contrast level between light and dark details, like seen here with a light wicker basket on the coffee table that's set against sharp black details and southwest-inspired designer throw pillows.
