Move over, navy blue: There’s a new popular kid in town. According to recent Pinterest data, searches for terracotta bedrooms are seeing a 341 percent increase year over year—there’s something about the warm, earthy hue that feels especially comforting right now. 

It’s not only that room that’s getting some love on the platform; searches for terracotta decor and a terracotta color palette are also popular, with a 106 percent and 301 percent spike, respectively. We even rolled out a Domino-curated feed dedicated to the tint, in partnership with Pinterest as part of one of its just-launched features to help users shop on the app. As we get ready for sunnier weather, why not bring some desert vibes home? 

If you’re ready to hop aboard the trend and give your bedroom a revamp, there are so many ways to approach a mini makeover: Treat yourself to some rosy bedding or add a clay vase to your nightstand to house fresh blooms. Or you can go all out with a gallon of paint—because shades of terracotta range from orangey brown to dusty pink, it’s a surprisingly versatile color. Here are the swatches we’re currently considering.
