Uber Chic Umber Decor

Umber pigments were found on cave paintings from the neolithic period, one of the first colours painted by humans, and yet it lends itself marvellously to the modern interior. Raw umber is a rich natural brown or reddish-brown earth shade that builds warmth. Put a little fire to it and a pronounced burnt umber shade can be utilised for added intensity in a contemporary setting. In the two umber home interiors we’ll look at today, the shade is balanced out with black and white elements, and moments of greenery for added freshness. Of course natural elements vibe easily with the earth colour, but these modern mixes bring the historical hue bang up to date.
