Make Mine Mustard

A few years back I jumped on the Mustard Yellow & Gray Train.  But after having every client request the same color palette, I had to jump off that ride.  That is one of the unforeseen problems of designing others spaces... you find a trend you love & after duplicating it dozens of times it becomes old, really fast.  

While I haven't brought a lot of yellow back into the house, during our shopping trip this weekend I once again saw this color everywhere!  I wanted to share a few fresh options for bringing other colors in with Mustard, in case you are looking to update your existing yellow, or maybe venture into something new, here are some great color combinations that will take yellow to the next level!

  1. I'm working on ideas for my baby's nursery and am thinking mint and gold and grey and wood tones. But I think mustard is a good stand in for some of the gold tones. I'm not a professional designer, but even just in following design I think it's easy to get tired of color combos.

  2. Isn't that the truth! I love something, but then I start seeing it everywhere and tire of it quickly. I've been loving really rich curtains as of late…I'm sure the promise of fall has something to do with it. :)

  3. Kristen - Loved this post. Many years ago I painted off white walls in my great room a beautiful mustard gold and watched the windows and the cream woodwork pop! It made such a difference. I have loved the room ever since. The room is quite large and I feel the golden color really warms it up. I have made changes to accessories and find that the gold is so neutral to me that anything goes with it! Loved your color combinations in the pictures ... especially the red and peacock blue with the mustard. Thanks for all your decorating inspirations!

  4. I agree, I hate to follow too many trends, I like to see other pieces in my four walls. :) I just love those pink chairs above, that entire space just looks elegant. My go-to "color" is gold, there are so many different shades of gold and it can look great in any room.

  6. I have yellow velvet swatches on the way to my house now! Pillows will soon come of that. I also have yellow cranesbill wallpaper in my dining room. LOVE yellow!

  7. The first combo...wow! I love the unexpected touch of cranberry, and the peacock just makes the mustard so much richer. Good eye ;)

  8. This is really helpful. It's sometimes hard to stay ahead of the influences we see everywhere and still be true to our own personal style. We just have to design with what speaks to us, and some of these yellow schemes are definitely calling my name right now! Thanks for the inspiration.

  10. The mustard mutes the primary color palette in the first image. InsideSeen shows you how to get this look for less with the Curated Fabric Collection. http://ow.ly/B6vLx

  11. I was burned out on yellow too and recently I've been catching myself using it again in projects. I am actually using it in my youngest son's room now!
