Earthy tones are a popular commodity this year with the shades popping up everywhere from furniture to walls for a neutral look and feel. This look allows you to style a space without over-complicating it with too much colour.


Compliment your living space with tan furniture that will emanate warmth.

Pair with off-white walls and balance with taupe accents for the perfect winter feel.

Bedroom Tans

White and grey walls work well against earthy tones such as dark brown, as they are a perfect pair in nature. Achieve this look by adding a touch of brown to your bedspread or a throw rug.

Light Brown with Grey

Light grey couches are trending in 2016, and light tans complement them perfectly. Include luxe textiles such as leather to create a modern look.

Statement Tan

Use earthy-tones as a statement by choosing a particular chair or piece of décor that will stand out in a stark room. When using the right shade of tan, it will give balance to the rest of the shades and tones commonly found in a neutral space.
