Get the Look: Earthy Neutrals
21st Feb 2023
Neutral tones have always been a favourite amongst interior designers, but for 2023 we have seen a move towards more earthy tones and design schemes with added depth and interest. Whether you’re looking for a subtle touch of natural colour or want to totally embrace the organic feel of earthy neutrals, there are plenty of ways to incorporate them into your home. Here are some ideas for embracing this trend and incorporating earthy neutrals into your home decor.
Add natural wood
Create a rustic yet modern look with wooden furniture and accessories. Furniture made from natural materials like wood, rattan, and wicker is perfect for bringing an earthy vibe into your home. Choose pieces that are light in colour to create a more neutral look.
Adding engineered wood flooring throughout your living areas will have the effect of grounding the space, allowing your furniture and decor to take centre stage. Opt for a natural wood floor colour for the perfect backdrop, or a dramatic dark tone for added contrast. Rich coffee coloured floors, such as our Brixham Oak Wide Plank work particularly well with this trend perfectly complementing warmer neutral paint colours.

Add texture with natural materials like stone, clay, and jute. These materials add interest to any room without taking away from an earthy neutral colour scheme. For example, a clay or stone vase or bowl can bring a unique texture and character to your space. Jute rugs or wall hangings can also bring a touch of natural elegance to the room. Layering with different types of textiles add an earthy touch to any room.
Opt for a lived in look as opposed to a pristine and polished look; think linen bed spreads, chunky sisal loop rugs and knitted cushions for a comfortable, relaxed aesthetic that has an inviting, cocooning effect.
Introduce house plants
House plants are ideal for adding a bit of life into any room, and they come in an array of earthy tones as well. From deep greens to light tans, plants can bring the perfect amount of natural colour into your home. Choose a few that suit your style and place them around the room for an instant pick-me-up.
Opt for warm walls
Use neutral wall colours as a backdrop. Neutral paint colours like beiges, creams, and whites are great for creating a neutral backdrop for your decor. These colours will help to tone down bright and bold accents, while still providing depth and texture to the room. The Dulux Colour of the Year for 2023 is Wild Wonder, inspired by the warm tones of harvested crops, this upbeat hue connects us to the world, evoking a sense of renewed energy.
These are just a few ideas for incorporating earthy neutrals into your home decor. With a little creativity, you can create a tranquil oasis that is both modern and cozy at the same time. Don’t be afraid to experiment and have fun with it! Good luck!
