Beautiful Rust

Bringing some of the outdoors in through the use of organic elements can add a serene beauty to a space.

While rust is a curse in many situations (causing weakness in metal structures, eroding car bodies), rust is both texturally and visually appealing and is finding its way into the design and decor world with more frequency; interior and exterior finishes, furniture and accessories, faux finishes, paint and tile to name a few.

Here are a few lovely examples.

    I also agree. Something weirdly seductive and beautiful about the transformation of colors and textures that happens with corrosion. Plus, there’s everything else in the vicinity, all the bordering colors and textures. Great blog Becky…loved it.

      The difference between one who is a writer and one who reposts pictures: you captured in one comment what I hoped to in several photos. Oh to be a writer. Thanks for the encouragement 🙂

    I don’t know, we see so much destructive rust on our vehicles in this country I don’t think I’d see the beauty of it – although that doorknob looks very interesting.


I appreciate your feedback.
