Cupcakes and Cashmere

i must say...this is one of my favorite posts i've come across. all of the pictures are oozing with inspirational ideas and mustard yellow is such a fabulous color.

Caroline @ Patagonia Gifts

I love mustard yellow too. It's my favorite yellow hue. That dress at the top is sooo beautiful! Thanks for all your awesome comments on my blog! They make my day! :)

I love yellow! It was on my mind this morning too.

Hi there! I can't find a link to email you at so I thought I would drop you a line. I had a quick question so if you would be so kind to email me...

Thanks!

So I love the "thesis" that you wrote about my dress post. I had a feeling you are a good person to get feedback from and I was right! So I am probably going to take advantage of your wedding obsession if you don't mind. I just love your taste.

I am going to take your mentality of the dress shopping being for other people and not just me. I am feeling much better about it. I agree on things not being too stiff. I want to feel beautiful, but not necessarily a princess with a huge ball gown. I am trying to stay open minded before I try things on because I am sure my opinion and thoughts will change. I'm encouraged by your experience with losing 8 pounds. People are saying that I don't need to, but I want to. I still can lose some weight and continue to be in the healthy range that I'm in now. So anyways..thanks so much for your feedback. Please give me more. My posts might be a little slow today and tomorrow as things are super crazy.

Now on this post...I like the mustard yellow too. I like it with the gray or even a deep purple to balance some of the brightness. Your pictures are such wonderful examples of yellow used well. What were your wedding colors?

joanna goddard

that dress at the top is so stunning!!!

julie

what a wonderful post! my best friend just bought her first house and we've been obsessing over incorporating teal and mustard yellow. These images are inspiring!

Georgia

very nice. i'm thinking about my place—i'm pretty sure i have no mustard yellow anywhere except one small throw pillow. i will have to remedy that.

as far as clothing goes—it does not work well with my olive skin tone, so i find myself always putting lovely items back on the rack.
:(

you found some nice "stuff" here—you've given mustard yellow a new life!

jora

Beautiful choices, per usual. I really like those floor pillows and the backdrop to the newlyweds. :)

Beautiful post! It's funny, when I was pregnant with my third child I was overcome with an insatiable craving to paint an archway between my foyer and hallway yellow. And not a sweet, shy hint of yellow, oh no, my hormones were screaming big and bold. My husband, bless his heart, was up on a ladder that very afternoon. But three years later the yellow is still there, vibrant as ever, and I'm glad I took the plunge!

robin pulsifer

wow, love all of those photos and i want every single item in the first one, including the dress. where did you find these fab photos? drool city!

joslyn

i've caught it for sure...love, love, love mustard!

love. it.

dolce chic

Anne, you are by far the greatest at this! I am absolutely in love with the color yellow! I love that tufted sofa, and that dress with the gorgeous boots, and turquoise ring...couldn't be more gorgeous. Wonderful post as usual my friend!!!

please sir

I so agree...love this color oh so much!!

Courtney

Yes, I have caught the mustard bug too.

Anne, these are beautiful images! I always love Lena Corwin's wedding photos. And the first photo in this group is absolutely breathtaking. It makes me want to have a dinner party to get ready for (soaking in that tub and having that dress to wear!) Love love love.

juliette c.

Anne. what a wonderful work you made!!!
I love the photo with sofa and curtain! It make me loves this specific mustard yellow!

juliette c.

ops! I lost my comment...
I was sayin you made a wonderful work. I love the photo with sofa and curtain!!!

Treacy

Happy. That's how mustard yellow has been affecting me lately.

And that overprint damask fabric in your last photo? Gasp- just beautiful, it takes my breathe away.

Jen

I love it in the house...especially paired with dark gray. With turquoise it gives it more of the "Darjeeling Limited" look. I thought that movie was pretty. Can movies be pretty?

I don't like it for a wardrobe color due to the fact it makes me look like I am sick. But it did remind me of the last episode of "the Office"...Pam Beesly: [over bluetooth, referring to Dwight] Describe him exactly. What color mustard is his shirt? Yellow or Dijon?
Jim Halpert: It is more a spicy brown actually.

Sarah's Fab Day

Me too! My sister and I were just talking about my latest crush on yellow earlier today.

Rebecca

ooohhh, I love mustard--what a great collection! and those dresses--lovely!

Alice Q.

I love those photos! Dark gray and mustard yellow has been one of my very favorite color combos this fall. Gorgeous! ;-)

Betsy

I'm not normally a yellow fan myself, but I do find myself veering towards the mustard color. Is it because deep down I've always admired it? Or is it because it is so prevalent in fashion/interiors today that I can't help but be sucked in? I don't know, but a little mustard yellow mixed in with grey or teal is lovely.

As is that top picture of the bathroom. That dress is stunning. Sadly it looks like one of those dresses that looks so much better hanging than on!

mary jo

This is just a fab post! Love that photo of the stones on the mantle. And that mustard dress and boots--to die for!

velvet and linen

Ok, you have convinced me. Mustard yellow is divine. I love the first image of the ethereal yellow dress hanging in front of the aged blue wall.
I also love the blue velvet chair against that gorgeous yellow wall paper.
Great images.

christina

i love every single photo. i'm not usually drawn to yellow myself, either (gold is another story...) but what a fresh, beautiful way of looking at this color!

dolce chic

I just had to comment again on this! This has to be my all time favorite post. I've been thinking about it so much!!! :)

Design Lovely

I really love these photos. I especially love the last photo because I have been thinking about creating a photo shoot area at my wedding similar to this. I think I will go with something a little more subtle than than the mustard though. Thanks for showing this and reaffirming my decision. Love your blog and thank you for all your nice comments on mine. Cheers!

The Deco Detective

These photos are beautiful. Yellow can be really happy, too - I painted the tiny hallway in a previous apartment a warm, sunny yellow, and it became a really inviting room!

Thank you for the nice comments on my blog!

Peonies and Polaroids

I hate yellow but this colour has been appealing to me since we did an impromptu wedding portrait session in front of a mustard wall. That dress in the first picture is heavenly, I love it.

alison

gorgeous photos, i love your choices. definitely in the hot now. i have been 'suaded and bought a new coat that it STILL isn't cold enough to wear! thanks for your posts...

cara

Love this! The colors, the posh, the luxe, even in the funky + laidback-ness of the last 2 photos + the natural rawness with the rocks on the mantle -- so lovely!

Redframe

Anne, just had to stop in after all this time to say that top picture has been stuck in my head for almost a year! Came back to it now as I'm dreaming of a guest room in those colours... Saved a bunch of pics off this post, I love every picture!

compact flash

Hi Guy's,
I am absolutely in love with the color yellow! I love that tufted sofa, and that dress with the gorgeous boots, and turquoise ring..

Spice Rack

I would suggest to put a spice rack with the color yellow to your Bathroom. It helps store some the creams and shampoos.

Cindy Abney

I love mustard yellow, just painted my dining room that color. I am lost on what color curtains to use. My table is black. I thought sheer burgandy, help......maybe white lace??? cyn

Pandora Braclets
