‘This colour has come a long way since my mother chose to build our en­tire liv­ing room around it, even­tu­ally lead­ing to a ter­ra­cotta “fea­ture wall”. Now, its resur­gence marks a shift from the trend for a min­i­mal­ist, all-neu­tral pal­ette and pro­vides an ex­cel­lent way of dot­ting colour through­out your home. The warm­ness of this hue means it fits per­fectly with most dé­cor, mak­ing it per­haps one of the most ver­sa­tile shades. Bagsy the chaise longue.’

En­velop your home in the warmth of the sum­mer sun with the lat­est interiors trend sweep­ing the high street. Shak­ing off its 90s con­no­ta­tions – when lit­er­ally ev­ery­one was ob­sessed with red brick hues – ter­ra­cotta is back in a big way to give your home a healthy dose of Friends-era nos­tal­gia.

This time around, though, we’re off­set­ting the fiery shade with cooler, con­trast­ing colours, like dove grey, soft denim and fresh off-white for a more taste­ful take – be­cause the 1990s were bad for all of us. Just add sleek mar­ble tex­tures and your front room glossover is com­plete. Chaise longue, £995, Habi­tat 3
