The rust tone is warm and it’s best layered with lots shades of this one colour – plus splashes of rose as a lightener. This creates a lovely building of the colour with no striking other colours to distract from the colour. It’s not overwhelming at all. It’s also a colour that works with trends including Traveller, Moroccan and Woodland.

If you just want a little rust, use in a clean white or soft grey interior with lots of wood tones and keep minimal so the rust stands out.

For walls we’ve found Red Earth (Farrow + Ball) and Heat (Little Green Paint Co). Create the full impact by also painting skirtings, doors, frames as well as walls in a rust tone.

IKEA is a great go-to store to find furniture, especially if you are on a budget. The Scandi brand knows good design and of course it keeps us coming back.

We spotted this cute armchair in store and think it’s prefect for an additional seat in a living room or bedroom. It’s compact and simple shape means it’s great for small rooms, and the padded quilted sides brings some interest to the design.
