3 tips for creating calming spaces with earth tones
Incorporating earthy colours into your home decor is a versatile and timeless approach that can create a warm, inviting, and harmonious atmosphere in your living spaces. The natural world inspires Earth tones and includes a broad spectrum of hues, such as various shades of brown, green, warm grey, and muted blue. These colours create a sense of grounding and connection to the outdoors, which can bring a cosy and peaceful ambience to your home.
At Taskers, we like to stay informed about trends. We're no strangers to earth tones; in fact, we have a variety of stunning pieces from some of the world's most iconic brands that would fit perfectly within this aesthetic remit. So, if earth tones are on your interior checklist this year, here are a few tips you can use to help you on your way!
Select the perfect backdrop shade
If you're looking to decorate your home with earthy tones, it's essential to choose the right wall colours. The trick is to go for a neutral base that will complement the earthy tones and create a warm and inviting vibe.
Colours like beige, taupe, sage greens, or soft greys work great for this. They blend seamlessly with a variety of earth tones and can suit multiple different styles of decor. For an earthy style, it's better to opt for lighter colours over darker ones; anything too dark or bold can overpower the earth tones. All in all, it's about finding the perfect balance between neutral and earthy tones - whatever colour you end up choosing should be something you love. Start with a neutral base and build up from there to create a cosy and harmonious space!
Incorporate natural materials
If you're looking to create an earthy and inviting atmosphere in your home, one of the best ways to do it is by incorporating natural materials like wood and stone. These raw materials give a sense of organic warmth and texture synonymous with earthly interiors that just can't quite be replicated in man-made alternatives.
When it comes to incorporating wood in your interior design, there are a few different approaches you can take. One option is to bring in wooden furniture pieces, such as a rustic wooden dining table like our Cattelan Italia Eliot Wood Drive Extra Large Deep Extending Dining Table or a reclaimed wood coffee table like the Bluebone Driftwood Round Coffee Table Glass Top. These pieces not only add natural beauty to your space, but they also offer a sense of history and character.
Incorporating stone into your interior design is another excellent way to add a natural element to your home! Stone can be a beautiful focal point for any space when used correctly, despite the common misconception that it's cold and makes a room feel empty. An exposed stone wall can serve as a dramatic focal point in a room, while a stunning stone table like our Phoenix Large Stone Effect Dining Table can add texture and depth (and style) to your space.
Get your hands on some earthy accents and artwork
Now that you've got the basics down, it's time to add the finishing touches! Incorporating a few accessories will help infuse character and warmth into your living space that comes along with the earthy style. Adding small decor items such as vases, candles, or ceramics in earthy tones like terracotta pots, copper accents, or clay sculptures can add a cosy touch to various corners of the room. Another great way to bring a natural vibe to the space is to decorate your walls with artwork inspired by nature, such as landscapes, botanical prints, or abstract pieces reflecting natural elements. This will add a touch of the outdoors and reinforce the earthy theme!
Lastly, this wouldn't be a piece on earthy interiors without mentioning plants and greenery. Potted plants not only introduce a splash of colour but also contribute to a fresh and vibrant atmosphere, enhancing the natural connection. These simple additions can go a long way in creating a warm and inviting atmosphere in your earth-tone home!
With the right furniture and accessories, you can create a cosy and stylish interior that embodies the beauty of nature. So why not embrace earth tones and bring a little bit of the outdoors inside?
