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.
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.
