Fall Coveted Colour: Samba Sandstone
Nov 22, 2021
Fall into autumn with a samba sandstone colour palette of inspired designs from bronze light fixtures built to brighten the dark of the year soft velvet couches and chairs in warm cinnamon tones that are perfect for curling up with a mug of hot apple cider. When you think fall, you might think of pumpkin-spiced lattes, warm fireplace mantels, changing leaves, and sweet apple pie —but what is one thing that all of these have in common? Their muted orange to soft beige-brown hues.

As we approach the winter season and the days get shorter, we lose a lot of natural light which can often make us feel a little stir crazy. One way to maximize your productivity and boost your mood is by bringing natural colour palettes indoors. Thanks to our latest issue of the Design at Home magazine, we aim to do just that with this season’s coveted colour: samba sandstone.
Incorporate Beige-Toned Tile Designs
Newberry Cotto Glazed Porcelain by Emser Tile
Install beige-toned tiles as backsplashes, accent walls, and flooring throughout your home. Updating bathroom and kitchen sink backsplashes with earth-toned ceramic or glazed porcelain tiles are a beautiful way to spruce up your home design. Plus, these warm brown-hues pair well with kitchen and bathroom hardware in bronze, gold, and copper finishes. This glazed porcelain tile by Emser blends contemporary design with old-world charm with its brick-fired appearance. Although the tile is available in multiple shapes and sizes, for a fun modern design, opt for the 10” by 11” hexagon in Newberry Cotto.
Use Soft Beige-Brown Fabrics
Roller shades by Graber
Select drapery, accent pillows, throws, rugs, and furniture in soft sandy brown colours to create warmth this season. Whether you choose a new set of brown velvet pillows for the living room or a soft camel-coloured leather chair for the bedroom reading nook, these samba shades are sure to warm up your room. Window treatments are always a great place to start when it comes to updating your home for the winter —swap out light drapes for heavier curtains and roller shades to keep your home insulated during the cold months.
Install Samba coloured Floors
