A dash of mustard: This season’s hottest colour in your home
December 22, 2017
The winter can be a dreary old time, with everything looking a little dull, grey and lacklustre. Well, it’s time to spice things up! Thankfully, one of the trending colours of this season is a bright, smile-inducing, mustard yellow. The hottest hue to put a sunny spin on your interiors and fill you with a warm glow from the inside out. Here are some top tips for using this saucy shade in your homes this season.
Spice up your living rooms with a dash of mustard. A feature or standout piece of furniture is ideal for incorporating a bright colour into your interior scheme. A bold mid-century chair or slouchy velvet sofa would look stylish and sophisticated in this colour. For bedrooms and living rooms, a colourful footstool, like this Watson storage footstool by Arlo & Jacob, which is the perfect choice. Stash clutter throws and blankets inside. The lovely padded top doubles as a seat for dressing tables, hallways and closets. The ideal allrounder piece.
A feature wall is another brilliant way of introducing some colour into your interiors. Wallpaper is back with a bang for 2017/18, so it’s the ideal update to last well into the new year. This Hold Tight mustard wallpaper by Mini Moderns, produced in collaboration with Transport for London is a delightfully retro design that’s perfect for bringing a sunny pop of mustard yellow into your home.
For those of you a little colour shy and wary of redecorating a whole wall in such a bright shade could always take inspiration from this Farrow & Ball radiator. The dark Hague blue on the walls pairs beautifully with the mustard yellow Babouche on the traditional style radiator. Mustard yellow also pairs well with teal and grey if you’re looking for further colour combinations and schemes to embrace.
For those of us with their practical cap on, thinking about space-saving, useful pieces of furniture, this mustard yellow wire table from Maison du Monde is minimalist and petite, which is perfect for resting a book and a mug. Its geometric design is also bang on trend, so this piece covers all bases.
Finally, a way to add some pops of this seasons colour to your kitchen is with these mustard yellow Eiffel dining chairs from Dwell. Their classic mid-century design works for all settings, plus they’re a timeless investment that won’t date. You can keep them even if you change wall and cabinet colours or move homes.
