Mustard yellow is just like its namesake, a sharp, tangy and tasty flavor that spices things up, but best kept as a condiment to the room’s overall decor. Mustard is a duller hue of yellow to your sunshine and daffodils yellow, but nonetheless has a special place in our hearts and by the hearth.

Going big and bold or pairing with something daring, mustard yellow can work to bring out the strength of the other colors in your home decor project. Dazzling emerald greens and rich sapphire blues look even more stunning with a dollop of moutarde on the side.
