Earthy colours are very much on trend in 2021, and another way these manifest themselves is through a mineral colour palette. Taking inspiration from natural elements like rock, precious stones and sand, these colours include ochre, mustard, clay pink, terracotta, charcoal, sage green and even lapis blue.
Opt for one focus colour to complement more neutral shades, and then work in the other hues through accent items like cushions, throws, rugs and seasonal bed linen. Mineral shades look absolutely gorgeous across a variety of styles, as they incorporate colour in a more subdued, relaxed way. Try a mineral palette when working with mid-century modern, contemporary or Scandi interior styles in particular – for instance, through a new mod chair in a pared-back sage or deep lapis blue.
