Chromologist mood board – Earth colours

As we grow increasingly addicted to our screens, is it any wonder that we crave nature-inspired colours and ideas for our homes? The most recent trend to emerge in this vein is earth tones, something we touched on here before when Patricia Urquiola launched her Terracotta-led tile collection for Mutina. Earth colours are as they sound – rich, warm and grounding. Whether you choose to employ them as a wall colour, to dress a dining table or as textiles on a bed, try toning similar shades for a complex, layered look that will feel elegant and timeless as these ideas show below.
