The Spruce / Threshold

Terracotta decor is all the rage this season, and it's easy and affordable to incorporate into your home. “I believe in bringing the beauty of nature into every space, and weaving terracotta accessories into a room’s design gives an infusion of organic warmth," designer Elizabeth Drake says. "While red-orange terracotta is classic, I love utilizing other shades of the material including white."  

Designer Alex Epstein of Purple Cherry Architects is also a fan of the style. "Terracotta offers great character and comes in a variety of sizes and now, in plenty of different finishes and distressing," she says. "Terracotta pieces can be used together in a collection or as a standalone piece on a console, entry table, or even placed near the edge of a fireplace."

Feeling inspired? We've rounded up nine chic terracotta picks that you'll want to add to your space ASAP.
