Dusty pink also pairs surprisingly well with mustard and indigo and works beautifully with natural wood and stone.
Teal has made a comeback in a big way. This moody blue is a design classic that can be complemented with natural wood, warm metals, olive, and terracotta.
If you are not too keen on a dark colour for the room, then you can lighten things up with duck egg.
Use terracotta to add warmth to the room as a floor finish, or as a flat colour on walls. Terracotta wall tiles can also be used for a backsplash, but always ensure that your terracotta tiles are sealed and maintained regularly to retain is natural beauty.
For a few final touches, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to terracotta accessories and copper cookware to dress your kitchen up with.
