my condiment of choice, for sure (...mayo, not for me)!
mustard yellow is now my fave wardrobe-condiment as well-- this is NEW for me!
it all started with a cardigan purchase in THE color (it was the largest stack on the shelf at target, bought it anyway),.. i now wear w/everything, really!
(yah, not me!)
...but in interiors, really? you're prob thinking something like...
yikes......a 70's throwback shag-upon-shag (btw: shag is BIG BIG BIG right now, just not this variety!).
~5 ways to rock the mustard yellow in your interiors-- think: interior-condiment~
#1-- start small, noncommittal (i.e. my target mustard purchase),...
a few earthen-ware bowls stacked on your counter top
...luscious vignette (pairs well w/eggplant, slate,...)~
...just A pillow (love this fam space for its eclecticism)~
..a small lumbar pillow sitting in the crook of your fave chair (note how it picks up the mini daisy's eye-- perf!)~
#2-- choose a mustard yellow paint color like this one....
...ben moore's #2154-20 and paint-it-up (it's only paint)~
an old hutch given new life
...these are a dime-a-dozen in consignment shops; what was once an old & dark mahogany~
or try a tiny side-table...
#3-- or,.... you could go ALL-IN with that can of mustard yellow paint...
...a stairway to heaven~
...a tired, old window (albeit w/good bones) now commands the attention it deserves-- an architectural feature~
walls, esp a small space such as a guest bath, powder room,....
...so pretty when paired with teal & brass hardware~
...love how the striped runner continues the color~
#4-- i love textiles & have incorporated mustard yellow in spaces that way.......
i used this fun kravet print in a client's guest room as window panels to rave reviews (no pict, tho)
from casual striped shades
to elegant, dressy bedroom panels (love love)
or maybe yet, just go with a noncommittal tie back (so pretty)
...note color pairings: gray is a sure thing w/mustard yellow~
sew up a slip-cover (yah, i know, IF you are so skilled!)
a cute, simple pillow (from a diy simplicity-type pattern)
...love those artichoke lamps from stray dog designs~
try upholstering a headboard,... not that difficult, really!
#5-- what color to pair with mustard yellow? i know that this is THE HARD-PART for most (me included--past tense)......
warm taupes, greys (neutrals),...
rustic wood tones,...
...ok, i'd do coffee here any day!
blues, teals (complimentary colors),...
...blue transfer-ware plate wall (have i told you that i LOVE a plate wall!!!)
#BUT-- what i love most about this interior-condiment is....
IT commands attention, steals the show, doesn't steal the show, pairs with just about any color (w/exception of brown-- i think--unless it's wood), can usually find it in the "clearance" zone (i.e. affordable), feels warm, and,............?
...whether it's-- a city scene
...or-- a country scene
taking a cue from mother nature, is ALWAYS right,...
you absolutely CANNOT take pass-on-the-mustard here in nh's fall season!
