    Bring in the warmth

    ANN/THE STAR – Blacks, browns, oranges, reds and even yellows are often considered to be earth tones that can help add warmth and cosiness to a space.

    Earth tones work especially well in spaces that are overly cool or large and cavernous, as they add a welcoming feeling.

    Here are some top do’s and don’ts for using earth tones.

    DO’S

    – Do blend a neutral palette of earth tones such as brown, black and taupe.

    – Do use earth tones as foundation colours to serve as a blank canvas and springboard to a colour story.

    – Do use earth tones to add a sense of warmth and cosiness to a space.

    – Do add organic elements such as greenery or succulents.

    – Do incorporate textiles to infuse earth tones into a space.

    DON’TS

    – Don’t overuse the same earth tone. Use tints, tones and shades.

    – Don’t be afraid to black and brown together for a rich, luxurious feel.

    – Don’t overlook opportunities to incorporate earth tones in unexpected ways like a piece of artwork or furniture.

    – Don’t use earth tones in spaces that are overly dark, as they may make a space feel small and closed in.

    – Don’t ignore black and brown as foundation colours for other earth tones as part of an overall colour scheme.
