        By the big red barnIn the great green field ...Margaret Wise Brown put it best in her book Big Red Barn. Simple, bold and bright, the iconic big red barn seen across the U.S. landscape evokes memories of rural history and a simpler time.

        Country barns were traditionally painted red, a custom that began because the ingredients for red-hued natural paint were readily accessible. The main ingredient likely was red iron oxide. Interested in more about the history of barn red and farmhouse white? Visit GRIT to learn more.

        Barns are all about simple, big shapes and are all the better when painted bright red. With big doors that slide left and right, a barn, like Noah's Ark, is a welcome place of refuge.
