Keen as mustard

If you’re super keen to get styling with the hot new favourite colour for interiors, we’ve pulled together some styling tips to make sure you nail the brief.

Mustard is playful and lively, yet offers a cool, contemporary luxe feel when used to ‘pop’ with charcoal and neutral tones, according to Penny Tsiklas from linen brand, Logan & Mason.

“A spicy tone, rich in depth, it’s a perfect choice for that statement lounge, or alternatively as an accent colour for your cushions and throw.”

Morgan Kelly, head of creative and photography at Pillow Talk, says mustard is making a comeback “in a huge way”.

“A flashback to seventies styling, mustard is still seen as a sophisticated colour and will be a hot trend this season,” she says.

“Mustards play a huge part in warming up a space whether it is a mustard cushion on a luscious emerald couch, a mustard throw on a dark blue bed or even as a wall colour.”

And if you think mustard can only be used in cooler months, think again.

“Paired with relaxed white linens and fresh green palms, mustard can take you to a whole different era of summer with a Californian influence,” Morgan says. Or add blush pink, gold and glass for a more elegant Californian vibe.

Pair earthier mustards with linen to set a relaxed mood for the space, matching mustard tones in artwork to accessories like cushions or throws, and adding pops of mustard in the kitchen for a “summer feel”.

The kitchen isn’t the only wet area that can benefit from mustard, either. Marc Reed, managing director at Candana, says warm, golden tones are perfect for wet areas and bathrooms because they provide balance to the stark whites of bathroom fixtures.

He recommends using mustard towels and accessories throughout, which work perfectly with copper or brass finish tapware.
