Rust Colored Comforters and Bedding Sets

by HomeArtist1

These rust-colored bedding sets and comforters both enliven and warm a bedroom space with their rich, earthy hue.

While we may envision rust as having one distinct tone; its value varies from person to person; some relate rust to brown while others may attest to red being prevalent in rust. But rust is a bit more complex than a melding of two primary hues and it's this more complex blend that lends to rust color's richness. Indeed, rust is a warm hue all in itself, it impresses its spirited warmth deep within us-- like a cozy fire on an autumn night or the crunch of leaves and roasted pumpkin seeds come October's end. It's these most ethereal gifts of our world around us that we can bring inside, into our most intimate of spaces: our bedroom. What better way to wrap ourselves in everything warm and comforting than rust-colored bedding, soft pillows--our own cozy nest of sorts?

Getting Started: Creating Great Focal Point

Your Rust Colored Comforter Bedding Set Has Quite the Job Description

a bedroom's bedding should contrast with its surrounds and capture the eye

Bedding has one doozy of a work order; it's your bedroom's host, ushering in guests, introducing your room's theme while warming your space and performing as your bedroom's focal piece.

If we personify this job performance I'd say it's one 'job' nobody wants!

Kidding aside, bedding is vital to your room's decor; it's often your spaces largest contributor, so it makes sense to go as big as practical on your comforter or other bedding.

This selection of rust-colored comforter sets, with their bold lines and striking hues, have all the attributes to make a great first impression (known as your focal point).

Ideally, your bedding should contrast with your wall and its surrounds, so it takes on that, 'Look at me!' impression.

Note how well the bed sets work to contrast the model room's surrounds.

It's as though the bed leaps from its space, beckoning admirers' attention. It's this quality you want for your bedroom's decor.  

Lighting and You Bedding's Texture

 

adding 'light' to your bedroom

Since your bedding is the most influential decor piece in your bedroom, it's important to consider how much its texture lends to your space's lighting.

If you've a darker bedroom where natural light is lacking, consider a bedding set like this rust and ivory comforter with its reflective sheen.

What light you do have in your space will be amplified, giving your low-light bedroom an extra ray of 'sunshine.'

Linear Design: It's Not Just Modern - Block & Linear Style Rust Color Bedding Sets

 

Modern design has many linear aspects with its clean-line appearance but much like the comforter set here at left, the style can work wonderfully in a more traditional setting.

Rust is such a versatile hue that I can see it being your color of choice in a rustic lodge theme and on into a Soho vibe like the set above, on the left. Too, if you're stick with white walls or they're your preference, rust bedding can support either look--all while grounding your space. Keep to bedding with brown accents if you're after that toasty-warm palette, while the more fiery tones can enliven your bedroom, taking it to mid-century modern or urban loft decor.

How neat is that?

Standout Bedding Sets: Allow Them the Space Needed to Make an Awesome Presentation

 

It's pretty much a constant with decor--particularly bedding--where you'll have the option to incorporate matching window panels, accent pillows, rugs, valances, wall art, lamps, even clothes hampers!

If it seems I went overboard with my list, I did.

Just as it's too much to read, it's even worse when the same design is repeated again and again and again and . . .. Well, you get it, I'm sure.

While matching a few pieces helps bring cohesion to your themed space, having too much of a 'good' thing dilutes the decorative value of your room's main attraction--the bedding. I call it, "seen one, seen 'em all.' Too, it's only human nature to turn all those look-alike images into a matching game, where the eye converts your decor scheme into a 'how many pink hearts with a green ribbon can you find [fill in your own annoying visual, here] ' competition.

Allow your bedding to take center stage and be the space's star attraction. Any accessories should complement your bedding, not compete with it.

A Note About Solid Rust Colored Bedding Sets

 

With lovely bedding like this solid rust colored quilt set above, it's best to allow it to stand its own and garner the attention it so deserves.

I love the crisp lines of this ensemble and interrupting its energy with too many 'helper' pieces would only serve to dilute its strength in your space.

With the smooth texture of the quilt, it's best to consider if you want more definition with your bed set.

The pinch pleat bedding here at right might serve you well to get the play of shadow and light going while adding warmth from added texture. 

 

Versatile Bedding = More Decor Options

 

I love this duvet for its contrasting elements and versatility.

The warm, earthy rust-colored background is emboldened by the stark contrast of a winter-white tree branch.

I can see this bedding in an urban loft just as it fits with a cabin-in-the-woods setting.

It's cool and funky or conversely, cozy and warm.

You'll easily define your intentions with your accessories and wall art.

Decisions, Decisions

While you probably have a style planned for your bedroom, solid bedding like this rust comforter set allows you to change course from traditional to modern without so much as a quick accessory change out.

While perusing the internet looking for rust bedding, it was clear that some comforters were more orange or red or brown than others.

So, I've come to the determination it's not so much the 'pinch of this or the dash of that' rather it's a matter of personal preference--especially those pieces for our most personal of spaces. My ideal rust color for the warm and fuzzy space is one that works with brown or tan. The more orange of rusts will pair well with white like the tree branch duvet I talked about earlier.

 

How 'Rust-y' are You?

My ideal rust color for the warm and fuzzy space is one that works with brown or tan. The more orange of rusts will pair well with white like the tree branch duvet I talked about earlier.

Here's a look at several solid color rust comforter sets and duvets. Solids may seem blahzay but ironically, plain gives you more choices for wall art and accessories than you have with busier designs.

Too, solids can swing from fun to formal and they're quite the age and gender-neutral bedding.

Another great thing about these plain-Janes is you have the option to use any existing pieces you don't want to part with.

Yes, plain is plain but you can create whatever theme or ambiance you love.

Using Rust-Colored Sheets to Build Your Color Palette

 

Rust-colored sheet sets can help you achieve the color scheme you're after, especially if you bedding of choice has a less-than-ideal amount of the rust color you're after.

Too, you can influence your comforter or other bedding's actual color by adding more of the hue you prefer. Sheets are an easy way to help you pull it off. Just dressing your bed with the welcoming pull-down corner and exposing your top sheet leaves a lasting impression.

The eye remembers a space's strongest color, so where color is lacking, add accessories or other bedding to sway the eye and influence admirers' perception on to your preferred color choice

Balancing Your Bedroom's Arrangement

I created this visual to illustrate how despite what is readily apparent with our decor, it's the things we're not so keen on that make a big impression on a space.

Did you first see the room's balance in threes?

The wall art reflects the number of objects on the end table. Our eyes recognize this trio and balance the space without a conscience effort; our eyes move fluidly from one element to the next without interruption and overload.

Keep pieces relative in size, shape and arrangement for a more serene abode you'll appreciate retreating to.
