Color Palette

The base of this design begins with relaxing neutral shades of grey and taupe, which can be used throughout your entire home. Bring in a pop of rich color, in various rust or reddish-brown shades, to warm up your space and add depth. Black accents add an unexpected layer of weight and interest to really balance everything out.

When selecting furniture items for this design scheme, choose pieces that embrace a cleaner and more modern silhouette. Lighter wood tones and black metal are both great options for occasional tables, benches and smaller accent pieces. Don’t be afraid to mix materials, like metal, glass and wood to create a curated and unique environment. For larger upholstered items, such as your sofa or dining chairs, stick with neutral shades in various textures.

Take the cozy level up a notch and bring in plenty of textured pillows and blankets, in earthy shades of rust, terracotta and sienna. Help define your various living spaces by utilizing rugs in neutral shades, either with a subtle pattern or natural woven textures. Incorporate black wicker or woven light fixtures, like a chandelier or pendant lights, to create a bit of drama and interest in your home.

Add the finishing touches to your space to complete the Rust Revival look. If you’re not a huge fan of wallpaper but want to bring the same amount of interest to your walls, then try utilizing wall paneling with trim. You can do this in an entire room, or just focus on one statement wall, for an effect that is both elegant and stylish. Don’t forget to liven up your home with a few indoor plants scattered throughout various rooms – we love a potted floor plant, like a fiddle-leaf fig or olive tree.
