These rust living rooms have convinced me it’s the color trend of 2023

Decadent, jewel-toned, yet earthy and warm all at once, rust red is a color we’ve got our eyes on as we enter 2023.

And it seems as though designers agree with this blossoming color trend. ‘To me, the beauty of rust tones is the concept of rust itself, and how it marries both nature and the man-made through the corrosion of metals through its exposure to air and moisture,’ says Samuel Pye, creative manager at interior design and architecture studio Echlin. ‘It’s a great metaphor for the way we live, wanting to combine the comfort and warmth of shelter with wanting to feel connected to nature for its well-being benefits.’
