Grey and mustard yellow have been around now for a while but there still is no sign of them going out of fashion any time soon. It’s such a timeless, sophisticated combination. The grey is the new ‘neutral’, while the yellow perks things up a bit. Grey and mustard yellow mix well with black & white, teal blue, but also with soft dusty pinks and the latest copper trend. If you have some mid-century modern furniture to throw into the mix, teak wood also works, as well as tan leather.
Grey and mustard yellow: a match made to last
Farrow and Ball have some great colours in their paint collection. These would make excellent choices to use:
Midcentury modern style lighting
I have spotted lights like this on Pinterest and I love this one, which is not badly priced either. Inspired by midcentury lighting, this globe pendant chandelier would make a great, eclectic statement, especially if you have high ceilings.
Add some nice table lamps to the corners of the room for added coziness. Drum lampshades are always great and come in so many different designs. Check out Etsy for some great geometric patterned ones.
Add a cosy monochrome blanket to your mustard and grey decor
Every living room or bedroom needs a warm blanket or throw for cooler days. Black and white monochrome throws go really well with a mustard and yellow decor. They provide a nice contrast. Check this one out on Etsy.
A great comfortable sofa
I am a big fan of the velvet trend just now. These sofas look comfortable and timeless in grey. Just style it up with a few nice patterned mustard yellow and black & white cushions. For more velvet sofas try Graham and Green or John Lewis
Grey and mustard rug
This grey and mustard rug is made of a cotton and wool mix, so natural materials. A nice, pattern in a pop colour to really lift the room and set off a grey sofa and natural wood furniture. Check out Kukoon for many more grey and mustard rugs.
Another great grey and mustard rug, with a slightly more minimalist look. It is soft yet hard-wearing with a stain-resistant finish. Find it on Kukoon.
Midcentury modern Sideboards to go with a grey and mustard decor
I think an original midcentury modern teak sideboard would be preferable in this scheme, to give the room some character and an eclectic touch, but failing that (you can’t always find the right one or they are too big for your space), this is not a bad alternative and a nice small size too. A lovely warm wood tone, in a simple, timeless design. This one is by west elm at John Lewis. The whole west elm range is worth checking out by the way, some gorgeous pieces here.
Perfect cushions for a grey and mustard living room
If you don’t want to completely redecorate and buy new furniture at this point or you’re very happy with your own sofa, try adding some cushions to your grey and mustard living room. This is a nice, quick and inexpensive way to update the look of your room and make some seasonal changes. I love the pattern and colours on this one. Plenty nice cushions to find on Etsy.
Tan leather chair
Tan leather goes suprisingly well with a grey and mustard decor. It gives warmth to a colour scheme than otherwise can become a bit too grey and cool. This classic butterfly chair would make a great design addition to your interior: stylish and timeless at the same time. Find it on Etsy.
I love a swivel chair. This one comes in a retro design with enough comfort to make it a great chair for snuggling up in for a read. Try Homelia for some great chairs and other home products.
