Down to Earth

There is no wonder that earthy tones have the ability to inject warmth and familiarity into Australian homes, with the deep natural tones a subtle reminder of our native landscape.

Warm, earthy tones are comfortable to be around, creating a sense of cosiness and ease. This makes Unearthed perfect for use in bedrooms and living spaces, as well as outdoor areas. For those looking for a subtler look, the warm, rich tones of the palette have been paired with neutral greys and browns to create balance.

When used in the home rust colours work well in living rooms and bedrooms, creating a cosy vibe, and a feeling of homeliness. Whereas neutral earth tones are successful in rooms like bathrooms, where texture and a wash of colour help to add complexity to an often-clinical space.

When thinking about furnishings, Unearthed pairs well with pieces that are similar not opposing in finish. Wood finishes work well with deep terracotta, and crisp, neutral linens pair well with greys.
