A Color Story | Mustard Yellow in Interior Design

The Nordroom - A Color Story | Mustard Yellow in Interior Design

Mustard yellow and ochre are colors I’ve been seeing a lot lately in home decor (even yesterday I posted a home with a mustard sofa). The colors are not as bright as normal yellow but they are nice colors if you want to add bright colors into your home that still feels warm. I’ve selected some examples as to how you can incorporate mustard yellow/orchre into your home. From mustard furniture to wall paint and home decorations, there are plenty of ways to brighten your space with these beautiful colors.

Furniture

From small statement furniture pieces in mustard or in combination with colorful wallpaper, you can make it as wild as you want.

Decor & accessories

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

Isn’t it a lovely color? I really like the combination of warmth and brightness this color brings to a home.
