One of the Coolest Colour Trends: Ochre, Gold and Mustard
The yellow colour hues of Ochre, Gold and Mustard have been hailed as one of the biggest colour trends for 2020 weddings. With the wonderful Style Me Pretty team stating, “mauve and ochre tones… Palette of the year, in our opinions.” We love this fresh, creative colour palette and wanted to show you different ideas for making this work – for both creative, contemporary weddings and the oh so beautifully elegant. Below you’ll find our top picks for inspiration and different ideas on colours you can use to compliment and mix with ochre, gold and mustard!
Here are our top tips for working with this colour palette:
- Using fashionable dried flowers and grasses works really well with these colour tones, either using them in their natural state as neutral or incorporating the new trend of dyed flowers! Spraying fluffy Pampas grass for a modern pop of colour, or delicate curly Ferns in gold for a more elegant detail – there are so many options with this to create texture and statement details!
- Silk, Linen and Velvet. You’ll see a lot of silk and velvet bouquet ribbons and also runners which are great ways to add this pop of colour. Whilst silk and linen pieces create a softer, more refined look, velvet is much richer and heavier. You’ll also find that you can create a much bigger statement using these colour tones of Ochre, Gold and Mustard for the table linen and again this can even be luxe velvet. Personally I love using the napkins in your signature colour, along with neutral plates and topped with pretty place cards or menus.
- Use layers of neutrals like white, grey or nude tones for a really sophisticated aesthetic and add flourishes of gold, ochre and mustard with flowers as well as some subtle details in your table decor. Think gold cutlery, gold rimmed glassware and coloured candles. You can even opt to go for an understated elegant look and more minimalist too.
- Get creative with the clashing colours trend to other bold colours to use alongside these. You’ll find examples of pinks and mauve below, as well as burnt orange and peach tones leading through to trendy Teracotta, and even pops of soft turquoise!
