A design dilemma of my own prompted my latest article [Rust for All Seasons] for Houzz. I’m looking for accent pillows to transition my titanic rust-hued sofa into spring. Clearly replacing the sofa is not an option, but finding colors that cool the room’s atmosphere sounds like a more realistic plan. I’m looking forward to getting rid of the pillows with the fringe on them. The kids pull at it constantly and our new pup likes to get in on the fun, too. *sigh*
As you can see the room hasn’t changed much since I posted about it last year. This room for me is like a leaky faucet in a plumber’s home. You get around to it when you can.
Here are a few examples from my article on how to decorate using rust in the spring.
Rust colored bedding in combination with a geometric patterned comforter and crisp white sheets makes for a modern aesthetic that lasts for al seasons.
Rust built-ins provide a warm welcome to visitors in this entryway and library. Surrounded by pristine white walls, the color combination leans more toward eclectic than modern with the introduction of rich antique furniture.
Houzz readers recommended adding turquoise and cream to the mix. I’m definitely interested in hearing your thoughts, too!
