Color Challenge: Moss Green and Rust

Color Challenge: Moss Green and Rust

 

Last month, Polyvore had a home decor color challenge featuring rust and moss green. These two colors are amazing right now for two reasons. 1) Rust and Moss Green are perfect colors for autumn. 2) You’re probably sick of hearing it, but the 70s are back and the combination of these two earthy tones just scream 70s to me.

I put together this home decor set highlighting the two colors and tried not to be too “in your face” about the colors. The easiest way to incorporate the colors is with the couch and accent pillows. The couch here is the perfect, bright, moss green color and definitely looks like a throwback, vintage couch. The orange accent pillows compliment it well, but I also wanted to incorporate the white and green chevron accent pillows to break up the colors a bit. The candle wall sconces have a rust, brass color – a subtle way to include the color. The rust colored leaf wall decor is so cute and a perfect piece to add to the home for the season in my opinion! Lastly, the quartet of floral paintings in frames use the two colors beautifully. The 4 piece is so simple, yet beautiful and definitely remind me of something you’d see in a home in the 70s. Feels like something I would see at my grandparents’ house or something! There’s something very nostalgic about it, but I love it and think it would translate well in the home today.
What do you guys think about the rust & moss green color combo?
