Interior design: 5 ways to nail the terracotta decor trend for under £20

Posted by for Life

Terracotta is the interior design trend taking over our Instagram feeds, and for good reason. Here’s our homeware edit to make this rich, earthy tone your own.

With summer on the horizon, it seems the interior world is being influenced by the hot weather with a terracotta-toned trend.

The shade’s deliciously rich, earthy red and brown tones are taking over this season, and will be staying put until autumn.

There are plenty of ways to work this look, from subtle dining room touches (think a burnt orange mug or glass) to a bigger statement piece, such as a terracotta rug.

What’s even better, is that when it comes to terracotta, rules simply don’t apply. This shade comes in a myriad of depths and variations, so anything from rust to a rich yellow will look spot on.

To make adopting this toasty trend easy, we’ve put together an edit of our favourite terracotta-hued homeware pieces for under £20, all of which can be added to an existing room for a subtle touch.
