What is it with mustardy-yellow these days? Have we all fallen under the Taste Makers control?
I think so. I have no illusion that I just suddenly love mustard. As if I came up with this on my own. No, it is the new black for me, and I have been seduced into loving it by Pinterest, Anthropolgie, Country Living and a thousand other influences..
I have and always love robins egg blue, white, pink, celery, cherry red.
But other colors seem to come and go as my accent colors, my “pop.”
Right now, it’s mustard. Or Farm Equipment Yellow as my spray paint calls it.
In the past it was black. Then bright aqua. Now it’s mustard.
When Sweet Man and I went on our little impromptu getaway a few weeks ago I picked up this lamp at the Goodwill in Springdale. We needed a new lamp because the aqua one that sat here before has wacky wiring and needs surgery. Honestly with everything going on around here these days it was just easier to pay $8 for this one and be done with it. Also, when when Black comes back or Brown is in the color-about-town I can just whip out another can of pain and presto! New lamp!
For now, I am happily under the spell of Mustard and I love the bright yellow color against all the pale blues and soft whites I have going on right now. It cheers everything up a bit don’t you think?
PS- What color have you fallen for recently?
