Warm rustic terracotta is a colour we are seeing everywhere in interiors this autumn. Its earthy tones are warm and natural and can be paired with warm neutrals for a calming setting or with monochrome accents for a vibrant look. Here are some of the very best terracotta interior buys to update your home this autumn.
