Earthy Tones: Back to Basics with a Twist

Earthy tones serve as a phenomenal colour palette. Earthy tones can be seen almost as a mid-term between neutrals and jewel tones – they fit in nearly seamlessly in most environments yet they have a charming intensity to them. This vibrant quality is what sets them apart from other neutrals and makes them so desirable – they can blend in and stand out at the same time.

So what constitutes “earthy tones“? Earthy tones are exactly as they sound – shades reminiscent of the earth. This obviously includes, first and foremost, the colours of the earth itself, in both senses of the word – for short, brown, blue and green.


Earthy tones are an impeccable way to bring subtle pops of colour into your design while maintaining a cohesive and soothing ambience. Here are some pieces you can use to bring these splendid hues into your decor:
