mellow yellow

It was a slow starter for interiors, however the retro yet sophisticated tones of mustard yellow have clearly been having a moment.  Whether a plush velvet upholstery fabric, heavy, saturated satin or elegant, layered  chiffon – these rich but muted colour levels echo the glamour of mid-century design. The colour co-ordinates particularly well with oyster, dark neutrals of a blue/grey tone, charcoal and black. Yellow is an intense, statement colour that needs to be introduced to an interior, or worn with confidence.  That said, it is also a welcoming and mellow colour, signifying vitality and new beginnings. After all, who doesn’t love that regenerating feeling of daffodils in the Spring…?
