Colors of the Month | April 2022 | Shades of Yellow

This month we're featuring not just one color of the month, but three: Bee's Knees, Yellow Wellies, and Fresh Mustard! Scroll down to see each color in action.



Bee’s Knees

Bee’s Knees is a warm, muted pastel yellow that was inspired by the days of good old fashioned sock hops and clam bakes. We love how it looks when paired with natural or stained wood elements, or layered with a brighter yellow like Fresh Mustard.

Yellow Wellies

Yellow Wellies is the perfect, sunflower yellow. Lighter and brighter than Fresh Mustard, this color is the ideal lemony yellow to brighten up a room. Bring an older piece to life with this joyful color, or try it with a floral stencil to brighten up any piece.

Fresh Mustard

Fresh Mustard is a bold, retro, mustard yellow that compliments mid century modern furniture fittingly. Fresh Mustard pairs excellently with Wanderess and Starstruck, for example. If you’re looking for a happy color, this is one to try.

What would you paint with these happy, spring yellows?
