Earthy shades of terracotta are doing a comeback, we are loving the warm hues and handmade feeling this colour brings. Go big and paint a wall in terracotta or add smaller subtle hints with furniture and other decorative items in your home. This modern colour with a vintage vibe is the perfect addition this season.

I love how Decordots added a pop of terracotta red with a velvet cushion cover from H&M Home in her home. It shows how a little detail can make a huge impact on a neutral space, and how you can easily change the look of your space according to the trends without spending too much.
The terracotta-coloured Globo candlestick by Kähler creates associations of the warm colour scale. With its defined shape, it can serve as a modern advent candlestick or as a sculptural decoration in your home. Use it alone as a stylish statement or together with the smaller candlesticks for a beautiful design tableau.
Beautiful earthy terracotta tones in a home spotted on Fantastic Frank.
Lovely earthy tones and desert vibes from Ikea. The lovely rich wall colour is rusty red: NCS S 5030-Y80R.
The Muuto folded shelf is a sleek and contemporary way to add storage to any home or professional space. Accentuating the look of folded paper yet created in metal, they are at once delicate and substantive.
How pretty is this home photographed by Riikka Kantinkoski for Kannustalo? A lovely combination of grey velvet, terracotta, and natural tints. On the table you can spot the Skagerak Edge terracotta teapot and cup. The Edge collection emanates from an ancient Greek-Egyptian tradition for craftsmanship and designed in a simple, Nordic expression.
Spun from organic cotton, these luxurious bath towels from Ferm Living are suited for everyday use thanks to their waffle-like texture that ensures superior softness, high absorbency, and fast drying. They also look great on display on a bathroom shelf like this one!
