Colour Crush: Terracotta and Navy

October 9, 2017

colour crush: terracotta and navy

Thanksgiving has come and gone here in Canada and while most of the country nurses a turkey and pie hangover, I’m back at it with a fall inspired colour crush: terracotta and navy.

If you read my post on transitioning your space for fall, you know that I am not one to decorate with traditional colours like red, yellow and orange.  Favouring instead textures and layers to create a cozy space to welcome cooler temps.

Having said that, a colour I am obsessed with for fall is earthy terracotta: warm, laid back and much easier to work with than red.  It is my new favourite fall hue.  And when paired with navy, it creates a sophisticated and modern look; one that is comfortable, cozy and inviting.

Terracotta and navy is a colour combination that works beautifully when each is in large scale pieces – a navy sofa and terracotta chairs and rug, work masterfully together. Creating a comfortable space that is cozy, yet vibrant and fresh.

      Thank you Melissa! Navy is definitely one of my go tos – in decor and fashion – a timeless classic. And while it pairs well with so many colours, I just adore it with earthy terracotta. Thank you so much for stopping by.

      Hi Emily,
      The rug was purchased through Etsy. It was vintage and brought in from Turkey, so finding an exact match might be difficult, but they do have many other beautiful rugs too choose from 🙂 Thank you so much for stopping by!
