Terracotta Décor to Bring That Earthy Touch Home

If you’ve been coming here for a while you’ll know we’re all about elevating the everyday. In fact, you could say it’s a bit of a mantra at ES HQ. We believe that mirrors, lamps, and art have just as much a place in your kitchen as the knives, chopping boards, and pepper grinders. When you spend as much time as most of us do in the kitchen, it makes sense that you would design a space you want to be in. And this applies to every other room in your house, too. We’re always seeking out decorative elements that turn a functional area into a heartfelt one. From vintage vessels with patinaed surfaces, artisanal pieces that reflect the charm of the hand, and natural materials like marble, stone, and terracotta décor to bring depth and meaning home. 

The latter is what we’re diving into today. And if you hadn’t already noticed, terracotta is having a moment—a well-deserved moment we might add! Whether you’re painting your walls in the earthy hue or choosing a vase to decorate your bookshelf, we can’t get enough of the baked clay. If you feel the same way, then keep reading to shop some of our favorite terracotta décor. You’re welcome.
