Mustard yellow is just what it says it is – the colour of everyone’s favourite hot dog sauce, and like various types of mustard, depending on their ingredients, hues range from light to dark and in-between. This colour is very powerful and not easy to swallow, so that’s why it’s rarely used as a dominant hue in interior design, but rather in subtle pops through accent pieces, particular walls or accessories. But, that’s not to say it can’t look impressive otherwise if done in the right way. In kids’ rooms, mustard yellow can bring much-needed warmth to an all-neutral space while at the same time toning down the playful vibes of a room filled with colourful pastels. It creates interest and adds a unique contrast to now popular shades of blue such as navy blue, light greens, millennial pink and earth-toned neutrals. So, from this corner to that nook, let us explore how you can spice up your kid’s bedroom by mix-in some mustard hues.
MUSTARD YELLOW WITH NEUTRALS
There aren’t many colours out there that can make such a bold statement like mustard yellow. By placing it against a relaxing and cooler neutral, such as grey or cream white you will be able to take full advantage of this vigorous hue and draw focus on a beautiful piece of furniture or canopy. Mustard is also a great investment because sometimes all it takes is a throw blanket, bed sheets or a cushion to create a warm and cosy statement.
WITH DARK HUES
Just like with the neutral shades, mustard yellow will receive superb contrast and show its full potential if combined with darker colours such as midnight blue and dark greys. Like stars shining in the night sky, pops of mustard create a dreamy atmosphere in kids’ interiors with a darker colour palette.
WITH BLUE AND GREEN
Blue and green with mustard yellow are colour matches made in heaven. Any shades go with this deep, dark and rich yellow hue due to the way they compliment each other. Blues and greens bring out the best in mustard yellow and mustard is quick to return the favour. With this colour combo, you will be able to pull off a gender-neutral room that can grow with your child and all of that without using a barrage of neutrals.
If you’ve decided to go with millennial pink as the dominant colour for your little girl’s room and now you are searching for a shade to break the ice, then try giving mustard yellow a chance. Maybe add a couple more pastels like blue to the picture, and watch the magic unfold in front of your eyes.
MIX IT ALL IN
If you are unsure of which hues to blend with mustard yellow, go wild and put a bunch of them on the table. As we mentioned earlier, this tone integrates itself great with the pastel palette, so it is up to you to organise the casting.
Mustard yellow is pretty much the new kid on the block and is considerably gaining in popularity in the fashion and interior design industry. There are more and more products popping up on the market that are putting on a mustard coat. Go ahead, explore and you’ll no doubt find something perfect for enriching your kid’s room.
