While no one likes to see rust on the underside of his or her car, this engaging shade can work wonders in your home decor. With fall well underway, you'll find that this color is fitting for the season, yet it has timeless qualities that allow it to be used all year. Here are a few ideas to get you started when it comes to using this alluring and autumnal shade of orange.

Make a few easy changes for a white space
Having a white room adds a touch of light airiness to any home, but you may still want to ground the brightness with something that's a little darker. Rust can come to the rescue of your pale living room with the addition of a carpet or chair, noted the Apartments I Like blog. Using a circular rust-colored rug with a few new curtains can make for a good start in getting this color into your home. Try following that up with some new switch plates and throw pillows. Play around with placements to make the balance work. 

Utilize the whole fall spectrum
Rust may be one of the prettiest shades of fall, but there are plenty of other colors to add to the mix. Blending rust with darker shades of yellow and red can work well to create a room that always has the laid-back look of autumn. The mix of these colors will make for a den that'll make you and your family want to relax and enjoy reading, watching movies and playing games. Try going for a pumpkin-colored couch with a rust-colored vase or switch plate nearby to complete the fall medley. HGTV noted that a splash of red can make rooms with a fall complexion come together.

Use rust-colored items from all over the world
Rust has been a color of worldly and exotic decorations ever since domestic decor started to embrace influences from around the globe. Using rust-colored lampshades or hanging tapestries can give your home an Eastern vibe that's always in style. This color will also look beautiful when in the form of a modern painting on the wall, even if it's alongside older antiques. By using rust as the main color base, you can easily use decorations from all parts of the world and virtually any time.
