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.
