home: trend [ rust ]
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.

For a more subtle take on this trend then add some pastel appliances like a fridge or toaster. Who needs to stick to black or chrome!
