It’s no secret that we’re colour lovers here at Mustard. Colour is a huge part of our brand identity. For those of you who haven’t been around very long, three years ago we launched with two products and six colours; it is safe to say we have grown quite a bit since then! Now we have five locker styles, three different accessories and nine (soon to be ten) beautiful, complimentary colours in our range. We may be biased, but we love every single colour we have produced, to the point where our wardrobes are now heavily influenced by our lockers! If you're new to the locker loving clan, or you're just trying to grab some inspiration for which colour to add to your collection next, then look no further! Read on to discover our colour story, find out a little more about each delicious shade and discover our favourite (and your new favourite!) colour combos.
The Original Line-Up
Way back in 2018, Mustard was born with six original colours in the collection. Those colours were Blush, Mustard, Olive, Navy, Slate and White. It was the perfect capsule of the colours we had been dreaming of for our lockers all along and the perfect foundation for our brand. Olive was the colour Becca had always envisioned when designing the lockers, Mustard was a must because of our name, and Blush just seemed to fit in perfectly! Slate + White because our essential neutrals, then Navy came along to complete the original Mustard colour palette.
Blush Colour Swatch | The Skinny in Blush
Our bestseller - Blush is the perfect pastel pink with slight grey undertones, just understated enough that it can work in neutral spaces too, but enough of a pop to add a splash of colour to any room! Get your gradient on by pairing Blush with Berry + White.
Colour Swatch in Mustard | The Lowdown in Mustard
Our namesake, our Mustard. A hot, spicy yellow, bright enough to add a pop of colour to your room with a warm undertone. We made sure Mustard goes with all of our other colours, but we love it the most next to Blush.
Colour Swatch in Navy | The Shorty in Navy + the Skinny in Navy
Our Navy is somewhere between navy + royal blue. Not too dark, not too bold, we’d say she’s just right. We love seeing Navy with Sage + Olive for a real nature-inspired vibe, or next to Berry for a fun, colourful look!
Colour Swatch in Olive | The Lowdown in Olive
Olive is our classic earthy green - fun fact, it was the colour Becca originally had in mind when starting Mustard! A dark green but not too deep, it is smooth, subtle + goes perfectly with Sage + Blush.
Colour Swatch in Slate | The Twinny in Slate
Slate is the cool kid around here. It is a dark, smoky matte grey which fits right into a muted, industrial setting. Pair it with White for a classic monochrome look, or go bold with a combo of Slate, Mustard + Berry.
Colour Swatch in White | The Midi in White
Choose White for that classic school locker vibe. We love to pair White with our pastels for something dreamy, but she pretty much goes with anything! Our White is not a pure white but has slightly creamy, warm undertones, for a softer, calmer feel.
Ok, so it's June 2019. We've found our business feet for the most part and we're ready to add a new splash of colour to our rainbow. Now it was about finding the gaps, what did we want to add that would fit nicely with what we already had? That's when Berry + Ocean were born, our bold, pretty pink and our soft and subtle pale blue. It was nerve-wracking to introduce something new but it has definitely been a fan favourite, and we think you'll agree they fit into our line-up perfectly!
Colour Swatch in Berry | The Skinny in Berry
We love pink so much that one just wasn’t enough. Berry is a deep pink, not too bright but definitely bold enough to make a statement! Think pretty flowers + summer fruit, that’s Berry. She’s a match made in heaven for Blush (obviously!) + makes a cool, colourful statement with Navy.
Colour Swatch in Ocean | The Lowdown in Ocean
Ocean is a soft blue with slightly moody grey tones. It goes beautifully with Navy + White for a coastal vibe or go for some cute pastel shades with Blush and Sage. Our Ocean blue is super versatile + works for all ages.
Along came Sage!
We don't need to talk about what a year 2020 was, but one good thing to come from it was Sage. It took some work to get her here - factory delays, shipping delays, all of the delays meant that production was difficult, getting samples for photoshoots took longer, and then when it finally arrived we majorly underestimated how loved she would be! Sage has really taken off + we can totally see why, because it has quickly become an office favourite too. We just can't get it quick enough!
Colour Swatch in Sage | The Shorty in Sage
The newest addition to the Mustard Made family of colours! Sage is an earthy pale green, made to perfectly add a subtle colour to a neutral palette + compliment our range perfectly. We love pairing Sage with Olive, White, Ocean + Blush.
We can't say much yet, but it's we've had a lot of people asking for it! It pairs beautifully with all of our colours, but especially Blush, Sage + Ocean. We can't wait for you to feast your eyes on it!
