The latest trends in furniture see the rust color as the absolute protagonist, inspired by natural and raw materials.
In fact, this shade has become a real must in modern homes, particularly for what concerns the color of the walls.
In the case of oxidized rust, it is an effect that recalls the worn metal and is reproduced using acrylic paints that recreate an industrial and very urban atmosphere. This color is extremely special and if used in the right dose can make any environment extremely original and fashionable.

In the case instead of the uniform rust color, therefore without particular effects, it is a red with a brown tip and also pink inside.
Precisely because of its originality, the rust color could lead us to think of a certain difficulty in combining furniture and furnishing accessories but in reality it is not at all like that.
Rust-colored walls can be used extensively in a home. In fact, they can be used in any type of room, provided that the surrounding furniture is well married with this shade.
For example, rust can be used in a modern living room as a backdrop for a fireplace or a retro-style shelf.
The color can be used to decorate a single wall or for the whole room. In the latter case, however, it is good to remember that, since it is a rather dark shade, it is necessary that the environment is large enough and above all bright. Otherwise it is preferable to use the color on one wall instead and leave the others clear: in this way the room will appear optically larger without detracting from the brightness.
Even the dining room can be embellished with this very special color. It can be combined with satisfaction to a table and chairs with a purely industrial style, perhaps using materials such as steel or aluminum. The rest of the objects must combine perfectly: the raw metal lamps, for example, are perfect for recreating the atmosphere of an old workshop.
Wood combines very well with this nuance, but I find perfect matching with grays and whites.

The perfect nuance for furnishing accessories
An undoubtedly original and less invasive way to use rust for interior decoration is to use it in the furnishing accessories. In a double bedroom the rust-colored sheets or the duvet are the perfect element to give personality to the room but without exaggerating.
Even the curtains and cushions in the living room can be chosen in this color. The important thing is to keep the rest of the furniture quite basic, perhaps preferring furniture and walls in neutral tones.
