Exploring Your Color Options to Match the Rustic Personality of Your Home

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.


Understanding 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:


A 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.


The 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.


Conversely, 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.


Here, 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 decor, but it would be a mistake to think that this limits your color choices; in fact, the fall color palette provides ample choices for your decor.

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.

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.

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.

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.

If you're just replacing a slab, fill in the exact measurements of the existing slab. If you're purchasing your slab with a jamb then a good rule of thumb is to measure your rough openings width and remove 2", that will be the width you want to input on the site. For height measure from the floor to the top of the rough opening and remove 2.25", this will be the height you need to input for the height.

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.

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.
