Mustard Yellow Painted Walls

Painting a wall in your bedroom or living room a vivid shade of mustard yellow is a great way of making a statement. This works well if you keep the rest of the interiors plain and simple as it will focus all the attention to the wall. A point to remember is not to paint a wall that will receive a lot of sunlight as this will flood your interiors with bright yellow hues reflected from the wall.  Top it off with a minimalist style painting.
