The rich & warm tones of Terracotta

Used in India for several centuries, terracotta is considered a mystical material because of its association of four elements: water, air, earth and fire.

Many ancient terracotta objects have been discovered in India, mostly depicting deities. The most famous terracotta sculpture is the Ayanaar horse in Tamil Nadu.

The regions of Rajasthan and Gujarat are known for their terracotta jars dyed white, while Madhya Pradesh is famous for its decorated terracotta roofs.

Terracotta is a lovely shade that blends easily with others. Use it with beige tones to add a touch of brightness to a living room. Combined with powder pink, it creates a feminine and warm atmosphere. Terracotta and powder pink are complementary colors and shades of light pink soften ambient decoration.

Terracotta works superbly when it is mixed with colors and materials. Mixing it with natural fibers and weaves such as wicker, rattan, wood or linen creates a harmonious whole. Its association with shades of gray and touches of brass and copper creates a warm and chic atmosphere that looks fabulous in a contemporary living space.
