Emerald green is still a trending color, but the new kid on the block is mustard yellow. And, that just happens to be my favorite color so I’m ecstatic that the rest of the world is starting to realize just how fun yellow is to decorate with.
From plush modern couches, you can sink into, to boho chic sofas to mid-century modern chairs that add the perfect touch to your home decor, I did the hours of Googling for you. Here’s all the best mustard sofas, sectionals and cozy chairs for your living room and home.
How To Style A Mustard Sofa
Yellow is one of those colors that just oozes happiness and cheer. I’ve seen some wonderful spaces featuring bright yellow to smooth mustard yellow furniture. You can opt for white walls and pops of color with artwork or rugs.
Personally, I love a good statement moment with a wall painted a darker color (perhaps a dark blue or grey to make the mustard color sofa pop even more?) Just don’t let the couch overtake the design. Make sure you have bits of yellow around the room to help make the couch fit in instead of standing out like a sore thumb.
You can do this by having a multicolor rug, like this shag rug which I personally own, that has pops of mustard and yellows in it. Or, you can lean on gold hardware to complement the mustard couch or chair. When in doubt, I head to Pinterest to view home decor ideas from other folks.
For the dining room furniture, I love mustard chairs around a table and then maybe you can add in yellow flowers or something simple like yellow salt shakers to tie the color in. Some stores even sell outdoor furniture that comes in yellow, though this is a lot harder to find. I wouldn’t put yellow couches on green grass (remember the Green Bay Packers things? but on a white or grey deck it’ll look great!)
What Colors Go With A Mustard Sofa?
As you can tell from my apartment tour, I lean toward eclectic boho home style so really I think a mustard couch could go with any color you want. But, I know not everyone likes colorful decor hitting them in the face every time they step through the door.
For a more traditional, classic look stick to greys and whites to make the mustard yellow couch you ordered stand out in a streamlined way. For a bolder look, paint a wall dark blue, pink or even another shade of yellow if you’re really looking for a color pop.
Mostly, I would just avoid greens so your interiors don’t look like the Green Bay Packers stadium and also avoid using too much black (bumble bees anyone?) Your mustard sofa living room can be styled so many ways and I know you’ll find the perfect combo for your sense of style!
