Warming A Room With Rustic Paint Colors

Choosing a wall paint color can always be a bit of a challenge.  Not only is there every color of the rainbow to choose from but there are also a wide range of shades and tones available.  It can leave you staring blankly at a sea of swatches for hours!

However, the choices can be narrowed down quite a bit.  If you are going for a rustic theme, for example, there are certain colors that will complement the style better than others.  It definitely helps to see pictures of decorated rooms for inspiration!

The following rustic paint colors are just a few examples of colors that do well to warm up a room and enhance most rustic decor.

Warm shades of red are great to use in rustic decorating.  It is a nice contrast to use against light wood, antlers and other rustic decor.  The red on these walls is Pottery Red by Benjamin Moore.  We wanted to go with a darker wall color to contrast the lighter basement cabinets which were a hickory.

Another great color is anything in a shade of gold.  This rustic kitchen looks so warm and inviting, even with the cool concrete counters, with the walls being a warm shade of gold.

I love a dark taupe-y gray to especially highlight lighter accessories like these white antlers.  They really pop against the warm dark paint color.

A fun orange can also work in a rustic setting.  This industrial sink is perfectly highlighted with an orange back drop.

This light shade of blue wall paint complements the look of the weathered wood beams.  I had also painted a shade of blue gray in my son’s rustic industrial bedroom which enhanced the light wood and metal decor.
