Choose the right shade and colour for your mustard yellow bedroom
Mustard looks great with a variety of colours, but it is very important to choose the right shades and tones of both mustard and the colour you want to pair it with.
For example, if you are using a bright mustard tone, black will work well with it. If using a lighter mustard tone, better switch black with some other colour which compliments the lighter shade of mustard.
If you pick the right tone, mustard can be both inviting and bright or subdued and earthy. Grey and mustard bedroom shades have the right balance and have a relaxing ambience.

Just the right amount of mustard in a bedroom
As a general rule, mustard should be used sparingly to add a bright spot to your bedroom. Overdoing this colour will take away its highlighting properties. It shouldn’t detract from the other colours used in the bedroom.
If you are using mustard for the first time, it is a good idea to introduce it into your space through small elements like picture frames, plant pots, blankets or other bedding, lamps, decoration pieces etc.
This way you can get a feel of the mustard and see if you want to go ahead and make bigger changes like doing a mustard accent wall or adding mustard coloured furniture.
Pro tip: Don’t paint the wall facing sunlight mustard, as mustard reflects the sunglight and adds a yellow hue to the whole bedroom interior; suppressing other colours.
