Traditionally, the rustic color palette includes oranges, browns, yellows, greens and blues. The key to choosing the ideal color for your kitchen is to make sure it gives off a nice, warm feeling. Country kitchens rely on yellow and light blue to usher in some rustic charm, while a Southwestern rustic kitchen calls for deeper reds and oranges to go with the terracotta decorations you probably already have. Use the colors of natural materials like stone, sand and clay as your inspiration.
