The colour that’s trending this season

Would you go nude? The latest interiors trend is barely there, warm, earthy neutrals.

For the past few years, grey has  dominated the neutral interiors palette. But sandy shades are back, and proving to be anything but boring.

Now don’t get us wrong, we love grey, but we’ve found ourselves increasingly drawn towards the warmer, friendlier tones of oatmeal and stonewashed linen. Think fleshy toned, earthy jute, canvas, wool, wood and hemp  – which, face it, all sound way nicer than beige.

Get the look: Find a similar bench at Pinch. Similar rug, Moroso, similar vintage mirrors, Kiki Design.

Not convinced? Beige tones have even been making waves on the catwalk. Evolving from sleek and streamlined at Swiss fashion house Akris to safari-feel at Loewe, we spotted a smothering of earthy shades sauntering their way down the spring/summer catwalk.

Get the look: This is the Otto chaise from sofa.com. The rustic oak flooring is from AJ Rogers & Sons.

Wiping the slate clean in the home, Perch & Parrow’s Brooks pouffe has sit-on-and-sink away factor by the bucketload, closely rivalled by Emu’s indoor/outdoor Terramare garden chair. Love the look and want to rock it underfoot? Lace up with Converse’s canvas-covered Chuck Taylors for a minimal but mighty style statement.

Get the look: The bedside stool is from ABC Carpet & Home. The bedside pendant lights are vintage barn lights. This is a Cirrus Hugger ceiling fan in Gloss White. The artwork on the wall is by Charlotte Hagen-Cazes.The doll sculptures on the bed are by Anne-Valérie Dupond. This vintage bed linen is from Anne Becker. The cashmere blankets on the bed are from India. This is bleached white oak flooring.

The shade feels most modern and fresh when paired with crisp white and black accents, or use it to create a pared-down, rustic feel with stonewashed linens, oak, rattan and jute.

Get the look: Amara has a range of cube footstools. This is Blu Dot’s Free Range coffee table in Marble from Heal’s.
