Rustic Paint Colors

Finding the right color scheme or palette for your home can be both daunting and exhausting; however, it can also be an opportunity to bring out your home’s personality while also reflecting your own taste. Additionally, there is no need to feel the pressure to keep the same color scheme throughout your home. Each room can reflect a different side of your personality.

Naturally, we favor the rustic, cabin-inspired decor that has become prominent in many 21st century homes. In this post, we’ll cover the right colors to complement that rustic look you’re aiming for.

 

Types of Home Color Schemes

When choosing the colors for your home, whether rustic or modern, it’s important to understand how color schemes work and the differences between existing schemes. According to Freshome, there are 4 possible color schemes:

  • 1) MONOCHROMATICA monochromatic color scheme will often use white or black to lighten or darken a given color. For example, using blue as your primary color can produce a pale blue or midnight blue depending on lightening or darkening the color.
  • 2) ANALOGOUSThe colors used in this color scheme are ones that can be found next to each other on the color wheel. These colors are clearly not in contrast with each other, which can provide a soothing aesthetic regardless of the chosen primary color.
  • 3) CONTRASTConversely, a contrasted color scheme brings a vibrant energy to your home. This scheme uses a trio of contrasting colors, such as red/purple, yellow/orange, and green/blue.
  • 4) COMPLEMENTARYHere, two opposing colors on the color wheel, such as red/green or blue/yellow,  are used to bring a strong dynamic to your home that is often quite bold.

Typically, a monochromatic or analogous color scheme work best when working with a rustic aesthetic.

 

The Best Colors for Rustic Decor

Fall colors often work best with rustic home decor, but it would be a mistake to think that this limits your color choices; in fact, the rustic color palette provides ample choices for your decor.

MUSTARD

This loft showcases how a rustic color can still add personality while also brightening up the room. Mustard yellow is a great choice if you’re thinking a bit outside the box of browns and oranges.

 

MAPLE

There is actually more variety than you think when exploring the browns of the world, including this soothing maple color. It’s smooth, inviting, and perfectly complements the white linens on the bed.

 

NAVY

There is actually quite a bit going on in this rustic living room: the wood floors, the off-white rustic walls, wicker and wood furniture, but what really catches our attention is how well the navy couches work with this rustic theme. Also, the mustard pillow is perfectly placed in the lead of succeeding fall-colored pillows.

 

LIGHT BLUES

Pale or light blues are not often thought of when rustic decor comes to mind, but as you can clearly see these monochromatic blues work perfectly with the rustic wood beams along the ceiling as well as the wood floors.

As evidenced with the small sampling above, there are many color options available to you as you plan out the rustic aesthetic of your home. To complete your rustic look, be sure to visit Rustica Hardware.

Rustica Lock Measuring Guide

Measuring Distance

This is the measurement from the top of your door to where you'd like the lock handle. This measurement allows you the flexibility to place the locking mechanism where it will not interfere with any existing handles or fixtures pre-mounted to the door. You'll need at least 2-1/8" clearance below. See Picture

Hole Placement

Introducing an easy solution to little ones slamming your barn door! Our new Closure soft-stop system slows you door down before it makes contact with the track stop. This ensures a smooth stop every time. The Closure system has been specially designed to be universal with all Rustica Hardware flat track systems, no matter the length of track this product will work with your flat track system. Product comes with (2) Closure mechanisms (one for each side of the track system) to protect your system whether it’s being opened or closed.

“Slab” refers to the door only where “Pre Hung” includes the door, hinges, and the door jamb pre-assembled with Rustica standard hinge positions.

Placement is measured from bottom of the door to the door bore hole.

Placement is measured from bottom of the door to the door bore hole.

Standard is 5'-1/2" above door knob boring.

Our designer corbels are sold in pairs. Each pair of mantel corbels is made of solid alder wood and designed for use with our floating mantel shelves. Corbels are easy to install and add a substantial design feature to your mantel space. Corbels will come finished to match the color and texture of your selected mantel.

All of our solid wood doors are made from the finest grade knotty alder or poplar. The species of wood that a door is made from is based on the finish that is selected for that door. Knotty Alder is more rustic and full of knots that are prevalent in the finished look. Poplar is a cleaner wood in that it has less knots for a more seamless look.

Please use the below guide if you're interested knowing what species of wood your door will be made from and the type of look you should be expecting:

This is the width, height and thickness of the door itself. If you are replacing a slab (door without the jamb), fill in the exact measurements of the existing slab.

To measure rough opening height, measure the distance from the stud above the door opening to the floorboard at the bottom of the door opening.

To measure rough opening width, measure the distance from the stud on one side of the door opening to the stud on the opposite side of the opening.

Measure the existing slab, that you're wanting to replace, from the top of the door to the top of each hinge. You will format your entry in this format: Hinge 1- 10" from top of door. Hinge 2- 22.

We Recommend:

3-1/2" hinges for 1-3/8" doors, 4" hinges for 1-3/4" doors and 4-1/2" hinges for 2-1/4" doors.

Select which side of the door you'd like your pull/handle to be located when facing the front side of the door (the side of the opening in which you can see your track/rolling system). The back side handle will be placed on the same side of the door as your front side handle.

NOTE: The current lead time for Brushed Steel and Brushed Stainless Steel on the Box system type is 7 weeks.

Hinge Placement Instruction

To identify hinge positions, measure from the TOP of the door to the top of each hinge.
