Get the look: How to use Mustard colours in your home

August 18, 2016

Bright colours can give the illusion of space and if you’re looking for a boost of optimism go for mustard yellow. Yellow can work best when painted as an accent wall, door or even stairs. Not feeling brave enough to take the plunge with full coverage, yellow is a great choice for a statement sofa or armchair. Alternatively carefully considered accessories can add pops of colour to give a room a real uplift. Just be sure to select the correct tone to avoid disharmony.
