Decorating experts predict richer colors for 2020 and mustard yellow, or some variation of it, tends to be on everyone’s trending list for the New Year!
Mustard yellow is such a versatile color. It pairs so well with dark, saturated hues.
But it can also hold its own against vibrant colors. It has the intensity needed to stand up to bold tones.
Mustard yellow can also be soft and feminine. It’s not at all overpowering in this light-filled eat-in kitchen.
You’ll find the color used quite often in historic homes because it was one of the first paint colors developed. If you’ve ever been to Monticello, you might have been surprised to find that Thomas Jefferson painted his dining room a bright yellow, better known as Chrome Yellow.
If you’re not a huge fan of mustard yellow, try adding it in small amounts like a chair, pillows, or blankets. You’ll find it looks great with almost any color – especially gray and blue.
In addition to being popular with the colonists, yellow is also one of three colors seen in Paleolithic drawings (which also include red and black).
This sunny shade looks great in any room of the house and is a great way to brighten a space during the gray days of winter.
