With Autumn here, there’s no better time to start warming up our homes with colour and texture. The hue on everyone’s home-decorating radar this year is Terracotta – favoured for its down-to-earth feel yet sophisticated aesthetic. Tierras Industrial tile collection by Mutina and Patricia Urquiola consists of different kind of lavas, of terracotta and of clays, chromaticaly matching with each other. You can find this beautiful tile collection at Urban Edge Tiles in Richmond. To add only an accent of terracotta in your home get your hands on the amazing Potter light by Anchor ceramics. Anchor’s lighting products are handmade in Melbourne, Australia. Thrown on potter’s wheel; the small and subtle differences of an object made by hand are evident from fitting to fitting giving each it’s own unique character. ‘We are Triibe’ design studio consists of a blushing tone-on-tone palette with terracotta accents. The design studio explores the different shades of dark reds, warm apricots and flat muted tones which gives a retro-cool feminine vibe.
Layers of burnt-earth tones and cosy textures complement each other and to add some soft texture grab the washed Velvet Square Stitch Quilted Throw in Paprika, by Citta. To balance warm colours introduce contrasting neutrals or greys for a serene feel with a touch of greenery. Burgundy has also become an increasingly popular colour and pairs perfectly with slightly muted shades of burnt reds and oranges. Anchor Ceramics has also designed the lovely ‘Earth Light’ which has been developed in both a wall and pendant format. Perfect for the exterior of an house, the wall bracket and electrical componentry have been custom designed to complement the handmade nature of ceramics.
