4 Ways to Decorate with Earth Tones and Bring Nature into your Home


Earth tones are so popular nowadays because help us connect to nature. We all live in a time where we spend so many hours in front of a screen, sitting in a chair, busy from one task to another, that we forget to ground ourselves. Earth tones come from nature - brown, ochre, taupe, beige, cream and terracotta are the most popular.

These earth-based neutral colours are calming, relaxing and make any space feel homey. They help us recharge and reground ourselves.

Earth tones are very versatile, they go well with any décor style and they are a good complement to any material. Below are different ways which you can incorporate earth tones into your space.

1. Furniture

Because earth tones feel relax and calm, they are a great choice for a living room or kitchen. A wooden table, rattan chair or rich brown sofa could be some examples. Framed artwork on the walls in natural timber frames such as raw oak, teak and walnut frames can also provide the perfect accent.
