Get the look – Contemporary Earth Tones


Sage green, neutral beige and classic charcoal are all colours that fall into the earth tone category, creating a soothing and homey look that draws inspiration from the outdoors. Pairing these hues with modern influences like contemporary shapes and styles of furniture gives a room an innovative and original look, much like our show home at City’s Reach, Hull.

If this style sounds like something you’d like to try in your own home, check out our best matches to get the look below.

 

 

Show home at City's Reach, Hull.

 

Table

This style of table can act as the eye-catching centrepiece of any room. If you like the look you can opt for rattan or steel wire materials, depending on the feel you want your interiors to emit, and the budget that you have set aside.

 

 

Save

This low-key rattan table is £60 from Next and even though it’s not too big, it’ll still strike the right balance between natural and modern in your living room.

 

 

Splurge

This more expensive option brings together the earthy materials of smooth grey stone and sustainable eucalyptus wood. It comes at a hefty price of £799.99 from Wayfair.

 

 

Sofa

The cream studded sofa and matching chair anchor the theme of the whole room and can be dressed up and layered with different coloured cushions. The studs also add a subtle detail that complements the added accessories placed throughout the room.

 

 

Save

This three-seater from Wayfair is almost a perfect match for £669.99.

 

Splurge

This four-seater from DFS is also a very close match with a touch more upholstery detail. It costs £1,599.

 

 

Mirrors

The shard mirror is eye-catching in the most subtle way. There are so many styles when it comes to decorative mirrors, so if the shard shapes don’t quite do it for you, then you can find other sectional designs that will still add that modern style to the look.

 

 

Save

To save money, you could use a decorative wall sticker instead of a mirror. This one is a steal from Wall Stickers Folies is £14.65.

 

 

Splurge

This shatter mirror from Persora is almost a complete match, and comes in at £195.

 

 

Light Fitting

The light fitting adds another aspect of contemporary design to the room and complements the rounded table and vase shape, blending in perfectly with the sharp edges of the mirror, sofa and unit. This style is a firm favourite across many of our show homes and finishes the look of the room off perfectly.
