‘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
