Decorate with this year’s trend colour – a brown canvas print
Nothing stimulates the imagination more than beautifully evocative colours and patterns. Create a welcoming home by using earth tones. It’s easier than you think to be creative with this year’s trend colour. If your home already includes shades of brown, use them as your foundation colour, adding complementary colours such as powder pink and bright turquoise. Or you can add flashes of fashionable colours using details such as a picture, a rug, or some throws.
Brass and copper work brilliantly with brown tones. Dig out granny’s brass candlesticks, get those old gilt picture frames up on the walls, or look for something like it at your local flea market. Add textiles with a variety of finishes, such as satin or velvet, and be generous with scatter cushions in a mix of shapes and colours to enhance the contrasts. Browns of all sorts work well in a bedroom as they exude warmth, calm and stability. Dark cocoa-brown velvet curtains will block the light effectively, and an inviting bed made up with pale brown linen sheets promises a good night's sleep.
Humans have been making natural pigments from the soil since prehistoric times. These clay pigments, coloured by iron oxide or hydroxide, are called earth colours. Some have names such as umber, terracotta, and ochre, after their tints of red, brown or yellow.
In the nineties, people used to say “Brown is ugly”. Perhaps they were thinking of seventies’ wallpaper and interior design – those backgrounds in the family photos, full of big, flowery brown-and-yellow wallpapers. Today, though, that’s all forgotten, and rich brown cognac and chocolate tones are the height of fashion.
