Current Trends

  • Desert Vibes: Sandy hues: clay reds, deep, muddy browns, desert golds, and yes: terra-cotta colors will be booming in 2019. — Junglalow

  • “In the main, ceramics have etchings. Dug from deep within the earth, natural pigments like ochre and umber, sourced from clays and volcanic rocks, have been used by artists all over the world for generations. It’s this authentic rich color palette that ensures your living space will feel warm and inviting should you adopt this trend.” — Ideal Home

  • Quiet Surroundings: “a place to withdraw to Plain products that are close to nature, soft colors and respect for the original material create a natural environment that is ideal for anyone longing for a stress-free daily life that is full of peace and tranquility. Natural materials such as wool, silk, hemp, wood, stone, clay and ceramics are combined. There is joy in experimenting and in applying traditional craft techniques. Recycling often plays a role.” — Ambiente, 2019 Trends

  • Soft Terracottas: “Sherwin Williams' 2019 color of the year is Cavern Clay, which is a Southwest inspired tone. For those who want a more elemental, nature-inspired hue with a contemporary twist in their home, this creamy rust will truly shine. — Elle Decor
