Mustard {mustard trend in fashion and home}

For today’s Fashion Friday, I thought it would be fun to explore the “mustard trend” in both fashion and home decor. Ever notice how the two go hand in hand? Love it or hate it, there is no denying that the resurgence of 70’s fashion has brought mustard back into the limelight. For those craving a pop of color in their wardrobe or home, it’s the perfect color for the job.

This scarf isn’t on the website any longer. I went to go buy it and couldn’t find it. Adorable!

We’ll transition now from fashion to home with a picture that incorporates both.

I wouldn’t normally think that I would like mustard colored cabinets, but paired with the white subway tile, black appliances, and farmhouse table they work.

I love this door! If you’re craving a pop of color in your life, painting your front door something fun is the way to go.

    funny, i just painted my one mustard piece duck egg! lol i’ve loved mustard for a long time, i think i’m just burned out on it!

    This trend appeals to me because it reminds me of my parents’ kitchen appliances in the early 80s. LOL…

    I have embraced this trend in fashion {but with a few sweaters from Forever 21, because like all trendy pieces, I’m not breaking the bank}.

    I don’t think I would commit to a couch or cabinets in mustard, but a few accessories here and there…

    I’m a fan! Love it in my wardrobe and in my home. Can’t wait to introduce some into the 1800s farmhouse we’re moving into NEXT WEEK?!?!?! :) Can you tell I’m excited??

    I’m not gonna lie…it’s not one of my favorites. It’s great in small doses–scarf, accent pillows, etc. However, it’s pretty freaking fantastic in that toggle coat. Gah! Perhaps if it didn’t make me look like the walking dead, I would enjoy it more. Not too great with the ol’ pasty skin tones!

    i have been a fan of mustard for many years i am surprised i don’t have it in my house in any room i may have to look into that!!! love the kitchen and loveeeeeeeeeeeeee the clothes!!

    Gah! As much as I love the photos you’ve featured here, I have to honestly say that mustard yellow is the one color that I just can’t do, in my wardrobe and in my home. I gives me that crawly feeling you get when something just feels ‘off’! But I am glad it is making other people happy! 😉

    I love it mostly because I used mustard on burns a couple times w/bandaid,and it worked beautifully and took the pain away! :-) Maybe the color could do that since its a happy color; but I think putting w/blue works real well like the pic with girl w/blue jeans w/touch of red.
