Imagine damp umber fall leaves, the fragrant browns of the mud after the first rain, olives of the late summer leaves, dusky marigold and misty folklore kinds of woods — there you have the most timeless colour scheme. And though, often associated with the fall season, earthy tones go beyond trends or seasons. In the year gone by when everything was uncertain, some people found solace in bonding with nature in more ways than one. And since earth shades are drawn from nature, they are an extension of the grounding we so desperately seek.
The earth tone colour palette is vast, so there is plenty of opportunity for mixing and experimenting. Fundamentally, earth tones are browns, tans, umber, burgundy, brick red, yellow ochre, terracotta, cinnabar, warm grays, shades of green such as moss and trees, brown oranges, burnt sienna, whites, some red browns and some gray blues.
