White bedrooms are a classic design choice, and for good reason. Reminiscent of five-star hotels, white sheets and comforters are synonymous with clean, sophisticated elegance. Still, not everyone appreciates the neutral look in decor. If you want to create a stylish master bedroom that’s also warm and homey, terracotta bedding might be the way to go. A big trend in recent years, terracotta is a bold bedroom color that’s showing up in a wide array of products from bed sheets to blankets, wall paint to furniture. Read on to discover Latest Bedding’s top tips for making over your master with beautiful terracotta.
What Does Terracotta Mean?
An Italian word for baked earth, terracotta refers to a clay-based material used in ceramics and earthenware. In fact, terracotta has been used in prehistoric art dating as far back as 26,000 to 24,000 BCE. Today, however, this shade of burnt orange and brown is showing up in a range of home design products, including bedding. If you’re drawn to the natural beauty of the American Southwest, there’s a good chance you’ll appreciate this rich and cozy shade.
Why Choose Terracotta Bed Sets
A centuries-old color and crafting material, terracotta is enjoying renewed enthusiasm in the world of bedding. This deep, rusty shade of red tends to create a feeling of warmth and comfort while reminding people of everything outdoors. So it’s a great option for those looking to bring the outside into their bedroom year round. And with terracotta growing in popularity, it’s no surprise that an increasing number of designers are now creating luxury comforter sets featuring this stunning shade. Whether you love solid colors or prints, florals, paisley, or patchwork, you’re sure to find a style that suits your taste.
Decorating With Terracotta
Warm and natural-looking, terracotta pairs well with a range of design styles, colors, and textures. It’s especially beautiful set against blue and other cool shades, though it also works well with neturals. Here are some tips for decorating successfully with terracotta bedding and design elements:
Wood and Natural Fibers
Wood and natural fibers look lovely against terracotta bedding. Calling to mind the synergy that exists between humans and nature, terracotta pairs well with wood or wicker furniture, woven rugs, pottery, and baskets. The end result is a soothing place to call home. We especially love the idea of creating a pop of color with a terracotta-painted accent piece like a desk or nightstand.
Plenty of Plants
Want to improve indoor air quality while renovating your bedroom? Decorate the space with leafy green plants in terracotta pots. As a bonus, you’ll be transforming the area into a serene garden that inspires rest and relaxation after a long day. If you don’t have a green thumb, feel free to sub out the real plants for silk. The end result will still impress.
Want to take your terracotta decor to the next level? An accent wall is a bold way to bring color and warmth into your bedroom. In particular, terracotta paint is delightful with boho or Scandinavian decor. So you can feel free to pair it with those pieces from IKEA. However, it also looks great with modern design elements and furnishings. For an even bolder choice, paint your entire room in terracotta or rust.
One of the good things about decorating with terracotta is that it pairs well with plenty of other colors. You can set off this stunning shade with black and white, burgundy, or deep red design elements for the most cohesive look. Additionally, terracotta goes well with cool shades like green, grey, and cerulean blue.
