We tend to gravitate toward white, metal and black lately, but a soft terracotta reminds us of the earth and our latest trip to Zion National park and their iconic red rock. Consider the loveliness and simplicity of terracotta when pondering farmhouse spring décor ideas.
Terracotta has been used for centuries for affordable decorating. Ancient Greeks used terracotta for pottery and if it ain’t broke, why fix it? An organic, vintage vibe for your modern farmhouse or boho-style space is just a couple vessels away.
As seen above, you can style a variety of terracotta vessels with a selection of stems to create a showstopper display.
Oh, those precious, little, circular handles on the Heba Terracotta Vase bring a smile to my face. Terracotta is so versatile. I can imagine a rainbow full of colors of stems or bushes inside a terracotta vessel. Go with just greens or add color with some buds.
You might not think gray-purple tones go with terracotta, but trust me, a Dusty Miller Stem or two looks marvelous inside.
Why does this vase remind me that Mother’s Day is around the corner? Well, if you’re looking for ideas for that awesome Mom or mom figure in your life, consider a Chione Handmade Terracotta Vase with some Snow White Ranunculus stems atop. Mom will love it!
Terracotta vessels with faux greenery or faux flowers inside make the perfect birthday gift for spring and summer celebrations. Need a housewarming idea - done!
Our Dalilah Terracotta Pitcher comes in two sizes and delivers a Mediterranean vibe, right? Styled right, the pitchers can also radiate Southwestern style. Mix and match the two sizes or use one with a couple other terracotta planters on your horizontal spaces. Add some green garland and you’ve refreshed your ‘scapes in minutes.
I’ve saved the Isis Terracotta Embossed Pot (available in two sizes) for last because it’s my favorite. The carved designs on the cylinder pots are remarkable. The design is simple but adds elegance to your farmhouse spring décor. Get one of each size, pair them with lush Lambs Ear Stems and your shelfscape or tablescape is set for spring. I’ve mentioned but a few and there are many other selections of faux greenery in our spring collection.
Keep in mind that these terracotta pots, pitchers and vases are handmade so sizes and tones will vary slightly. That also means each is one of a kind, adding a unique panache to your farmhouse spring décor.
Plus, these look great in your outdoor spaces, too! Terracotta integrates easily onto your patio, porch or outdoor entertaining areas.
