Mustard yellow, a mix between bright yellow and light brown, adds a rich tone to any space that it's used in, making it a great color to bring into your home this fall season. Mustard yellow can range from light to dark, which gives you the opportunity to curate an array of looks, to include warm, edgy, or even sophisticated. With mustard, you can go modern, contemporary, or mid-century, depending on the additional colors that you bring into your space or how the color is used in design. In an all-white room, mustard can make a room pop, as well its ability to add warmth to the overly cold feeling that all-white can sometimes create in a space. In recap, a white room with mustard accents creates an overall balance between the powers of both colors and can create visual interest and warmth, even when used in small doses.
Red is the complementary color to green; therefore, pinks are a strong option when decorating with seafoam green. Both light and dark variations of pink, whether fuchsia or bubblegum pink, provide a pleasant, sophisticated and romantic contrast to seafoam green. If pink isn't your favorite color or you think it's too feminine, opt for a muted shade of pink with beige undertones, such as blush pink. To add just the right amount of drama and sophistication to your seafoam green, use pink sparingly around your room, in pillows, flowers, a small pink rug or a pink patterned footstool. I'm thinking this is because they are further away from seafoam on the colour wheel (see I really am an amateur, I can't help referring to the colour wheel). In my mind Sarah's sofa has a grey undertone so she needs to find a more muted version of the high contrast colours. These colours could work as a wall colour, but since they are so intense, would more likely be used as accent colours or as part of a patterned material.
For a more contemporary look, try pairing mustard yellow with dark grey and navy blue. With these color pairings, we love the idea of using grey or blue on your wall, and incorporating small pops of mustard in your décor. For a playful look, pairings of turquoise and teal with mustard can bring edge and a strong dose of personality to your room. Remember, a little goes a long way with these colors, so don't make the mistake of overusing these colors. In the bedroom, consider using mustard yellow as your accent colors for your curtains, duvet cover, pillows, or even an area rug. Due to its strength, you don't need a lot of this color to make an impact. A little goes a long way. In the kitchen, we love seeing mustard yellow in chair or stool cushions, in dish towels, or even as the main color of your dishware. Remember, mustard can make for warm interiors, and with the kitchen being one of the most visited rooms in the home, it's a great place to add this happy color.
