Trend watch: Earth tones in fashion & interiors

Trend: EARTH TONES

First Spotted: From a huge number of interiors designers at Salone del Mobile Milan.  The colour palette was also embraced by several fashion labels including Kenzo, Ulyana Sergeenko & Fendi at Paris Couture Week Fall 18

Where is it trending? Across fashion and interiors

The colours: The full spectrum of browns – dark chocolate/umber to terracotta/dirty blonde to sandy beige – you’ll also want to consult your Dulux chart for sienna, russet and ochre.

 

Designers at this year’s Salone del Mobile Milan and Fall Paris Couture Week alike are embracing colours of the earth – from all parts of the globe.

This palette is somehow at once bold and subtle; the dark umber tones of rainforest soil, and burnt sienna of the Australian outback complimented with the fresh beige of a tropical beach.  Here’s how designers are making the most of this palette right now:

HIGHLIGHT WITH GREEN

Brown and green should always be seen ; ) In the world of interiors, our love affair with indoor greenery shows no signs of slowing anytime soon, adding a refreshing element to earth toned decor. In fashion, beige and tans are anchored by forest green, creating a polished and warm palette.

IT’S ALL ABOUT TEXTURE

When dealing in earth tones, texture is key. Create a striking look by layering assorted textures to grab attention and celebrate these oft’ underrated hues.

INSPIRED BY NATURE

Look for interesting forms that give a nod toward Mother Nature, think branches, cacti, desert and leaves. Designers are bold and playful with their use of this palette –  the beauty of brown is in its unwavering sophistication no matter how many shades you mix.
