Trending: Mustard Yellow Both In Fashion & Home Décor

March 7, 2020

Interesting color, isn’t it? Reminds me of a Fall color, but I have been seeing this color everywhere in clothing and home accessories!  A richer version of yellow, mustard adds warmth to a room without being too loud or bright. In many ways it can be treated the same as a neutral like beige or cream.

The colors are not as bright as normal yellow but nice if you want to add bright colors into your home that still feels warm.

You can find plenty of mustard yellow in fashion this Spring:

Don’t be afraid to incorporate mustard colored furniture into a room. A mustard couch or arm chair acts more like a neutral:

If furniture or wall paint in mustard is too much for you, then you can opt for a more subtle color impulse. With mustard pillows, plaids, artwork and bedding you can brighten up your space in a subtle way:

What do you think of  this mustard yellow color? I really like it to use as an accent wall color and I like the color for accessories to help update a gray or brown space.

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Hmmm. Though I know objectively that it’s not a color alone that looks good or bad to us, but a color relative to those around it — and though I love mustard as a condiment — all I can think of when I see these mustard-yellow clothes and decor items is *harvest gold* (ewww). I guess it’s one of the sad things about remembering the 1970s. Also, on the clothing, I’m having a hard time imagining who can actually wear that color. I’m not sure even a golden skin-tone could carry it off — am I hopelessly blinded by having lived through the 70s?
