As the beginning of 2019 unfolds, we find ourselves with an undying fascination for all things clay colored. These glowing tones, ranging from orangey brick, muted pinks, and rosy terra cotta, set an enveloping mood to any room, and look smashing when layered with each other. Not only that, but a room with these colors brings out the best in our skin tones, making them that much more endearing.
Today we’re sharing 5 ways you can you can include these flattering earth toned colors to your space.
One of the most dramatic, yet affordable ways so incorporate a new color is with paint.
A room draped in these warm pinks feels like it’s glowing from the inside out.
Covering not only the wall, but also all the moulding detail, gives the room a romantic French Loft feel.
Maybe you are hesitant about going all the way, don’t feel like you need to paint every wall. I simple accent wall, or even a half wall will lend an abundance of character without getting overly dramatic.
Another easy way to incorporate clay tones is with art.
We love these prints from Forn Art. You can download these prints for under $10 a piece, and have them printed at your local printshop, Costco, or Walgreens. Mix and match to create a high impact, low cost way to give your walls some earthy love.
These hand painted canvases from Upton Home are modern and warm at the same time.
Sherwin Williams jumped on the clay colored bandwagon, naming Cavern Clay their color of the year for 2019. We’re loving this DIY divider from huntedINTERIOR which doubles as a piece of art.
For those wanting to invest a little more commitment to these beautiful colors, try accessorizing your home with throw pillows, rugs, or even large furniture pieces. The beautiful thing about this color scheme, is that they are so neutral that you can utilize them in big ways without the room feeling over done.
One of our favorite way to use these Clay tones is in architectural details. Daring and bold, kitchen cabinets painted in accent colors give a modern yet calming feel to a room. A staircase painted neutral blush, or a fireplace in pink? - Yes please!
We’re so loving the versatility of this trend, and would love to hear your thoughts about it as well. Do you have some Clay tones planed for your future? I know I do!
