The concept of ‘earthy’ refers to resembling a natural, grounded ambiance in an interior design. It calls for the use of dark, natural color schemes that border on the dull end of the spectrum along with some boho chic and distressed finishes that provide a stylish edge to the whole setting. So further, we’ll be featuring 5 awesome ideas you can use to make your interior designs the height of earthy and chic.
1. Stripes and bricks
The half-brick wall coupled with the distressed, shabby chic style cabinet and TV console are the most prominent features that add an earthy aura to this interior design. The stripped curtains that make up the window treatment coupled with the shag rug that acts as a center piece balance out the brown accents with dull grey ones and add a chic aura to the ambiance with it.
2. Smooth floors
The first thing that comes to mind when you use the term ‘earthy’ is the soil, which is exactly what the designers have tried to emulate in this living room. The smooth wooden floor is the perfect way to imbue a natural quality in the artificial constraints of this space, while the concrete inspired grey backdrop provides a chic backdrop to it all.
3. Exposed bricks
The exposed brick wall that takes up a central position in this living room interior design exudes a raw, industrial appeal. The texture of the bricks is a little on the burnt side, so the overall impact ends up coming off a little edgy. The spot lighting provided by the tack lights adds a chic and elegant touch to the overall ambiance.
4. Smooth and wood
The smooth wooden surfaces used in this interior design would have been more on the rustic side had there not been a sheen of gloss over each finish. As it is, the whole space seems an earthy version of a highly modernistic interior with the chrome and metal accents providing a chic contrast against it all.
5. Leather central
The earthy aura of this interior design is mostly because of the expert combination of various styles of wooden surfaces, some exposed brick, retro furniture and a backdrop of edgy colors. It’s such an artistic blend that the whole space ends up coming off as highly stylish with a touch of vintage to emulate the chic.
