The combination of the two earthy shades creates a tranquil ambience that pairs well in bathrooms, living rooms and kitchens. Sage green brings a subtle softness, yet terracotta delivers such a warm and inviting presence in a space. A beautiful way to incorporate this rustic, earthy colour combination into a kitchen is by pairing brick style terracotta tiles on the floor with sage green cabinets.
For added texture, if you have a kitchen island why not bring in a set of light, terracotta bar stools for extra layering and depth in the space.
Add a set of open shelves to display your most loved kitchen items, and decor accessories. Introduce terracotta into the equation in an affordable, simple way by simply painting the walls in the kitchen.
If you have open shelves like this, use them to display natural materials such as wooden bowls, foliage and other darker accessories to define and ground the area. Terracotta is a colour that has been used and loved in interiors across the world for years, but it’s slowly making its mark in our kitchens.
This punchy colour looks incredible on the kitchen cabinets, adding a true statement that won’t be forgotten in a hurry. This warm shade is balanced beautifully by the coolness of the sage green walls for a softened look that just works. The earthy tones of the floor tiles blend beautifully with the sage green cabinets. Tie the two colours together with well placed terracotta decor accessories on the kitchen countertop that will also pop against the white and sage green backdrop.
In this setting the earthy wood tones on the lower half work beautifully with the extension of the terracotta wall tiles and sage green upper cabinets. If you already have a sage green kitchen, perhaps you’re interested in introducing a touch of terracotta, but in a subtle way.
You absolutely can use terracotta as a subliminal accent against sage green and it actually works really well whether it’s for the light fittings, or decor accessories carefully positioned on a countertop.
If you have a kitchen island, slotting a set of terracotta bar stools into the space will add instant visual interest and warmth to the area without it being overpowering. Plus, I just love the curved arches of these bar stools, they bring a beautiful softness to the kitchen island. The kitchen is finished with pale blush countertops which co-ordinates beautifully with the light terracotta ceiling.
As you enter the room, the first thing that will happen is that your eyes will be drawn up, creating the illusion of higher ceilings, even if they aren’t that tall… These hex terracotta tiles are a match made in heaven for the cool, sage green cabinets. It’s all in the detail, and brass hardware is a fine finish for a sage green and terracotta kitchen.
As terracotta is also warm, brass provides a perfect compliment to it where it is also used in the same kitchen setting, such as on the floor tiles, on the walls or cabinets.
