EARTH TONES – COZY COLOR SCHEMES

SHARE

Earth tones have been the most popular colors for the home during the first decades of the 21st century – and for good reason. Many people feel most comfortable when surrounded by carefully balanced colors that create an understated environment and make few demands on the eye.

Earthy tones make the spaces airy and relaxing, refined and timeless, or elegantly sophisticated. However, it’s easy to fall into the trap of using bland, depressing colors that are nothing like the subtle, complex palettes shown here.

Light plays a huge part in how neutrals appear. Simply consider the light in the room and decide which group you are most drawn to. You can then build a decorating scheme, possibly with the addition of bolder colors and wallpapers.

Color palettes vary from the cool, pastel tones of icy landscapes to the deep hues of dusky sunsets, with rose quartz, pale amethyst and earthy ochre all playing a part.
