Terracotta seems to be the trendiest color for interiors this year. Terracotta is a clay-like earthenware ceramic that can be either glazed or unglazed. In addition to being used for flower pots, terracotta is also often used for water and sewage pipes, bricks, and sculptures.
The word “terracotta” comes from the Italian words for “baked earth.” Since terracotta pottery is made by baking terracotta clay, that only makes sense! Terracotta is often used as a color word, too, to describe the natural brown-orange color of terracotta products.
A shade between orange and brown, terracotta is a cozy color that helps to warm the house with just a few touches. The color of earth and nature that, although it may seem difficult, it is easy to combine in different ways, combining well with warm colors and materials such as wood (for a material effect) but also with cold colors such as blues and materials like concrete (creating an interesting contrast effect).
But remember that are two terracotta shades that I think are more trendy: on the one hand, a shade that tends to brown and with a bit of pink inside, on the other a shade that almost tends towards an orange-pink. These nuances seem very elegant, both used in a total look or dosed with small color accents, perhaps an armchair, some sofa cushions, some accessories.
