2018 Color Trend: Burnt Yellow

May 30, 2018

Looking for a way to add some sunshine and sophistication to your décor? Keep up with 2018 color trends and say yes to yellow. Not just any yellow, though. Today, golden-toned yellows—mustard, burnt, sunflower, saffron, to name a few— are heating things up in rooms of all styles and playing well with many other colors.

We’re crazy about designer Anne-Marie Barton’s pairing with teal and aqua. The look is warm and cool, fun and elegant all at the same time. Barton used the rich color sparingly in a modern Park City home featured in our current issue. But as this pro proves, it only takes a little yellow to make a big style statement.

Where will pop it in your home?

Burnt yellow and teal pillows add shots of color to Holly Hunt sectional. 

A yellow upholstered bench warms the laundry room, floored with Pave Bloom Bluebell encaustic cement tiles from European Marble & Granite. 

Two simply framed art pieces pair with a shapely art light to create an engaging focal point.

Lotus Mustard wallpaper by Harlequin animates a spacious guest room. 

Yellow-bound books draw the eye into custom walnut-and-bronze bookshelves designed by Barton and crafted by Bradshaw Design
