I love the name of this color and I love the actual color even more! It’s a trendy burnt orange that has so many possibilities. Sherwin Williams calls it ‘Cut the Mustard’ and it’s part of their 2017 Colormix Color Forecast. There’s a rusty undertone to this orange that adds a warm, autumn feel to any design. This particular shade looks wonderful in modern interiors, Bohemian interiors and even traditional, vintage and Moroccan styled spaces. Let’s take a look at some ideas for this color trend.

I love the simplicity of this nursery design. The lovely white that’s used for the majority of the surfaces pairs perfectly with the ‘Cut the Mustard’ accent wall…

Here’s the same color combo in a more traditional interior with the addition a few more accent colors. So cozy!

Holy wallpaper Batman! How fun is this bedroom? The pop of burnt orange in an otherwise black and white bedroom is just stunning!

Custom door designs are an endless source of inspiration for me. This faded blue door in a rust orange wall is fantastic!

‘Cut the Mustard’ also fits in perfectly with Moroccan style interiors. In this case, the woven pendant lights, pots and pillows add this rusty orange to the look.

If you’d like to add this color trend to your wardrobe, consider a burnt orange jacket. They look great with simple black and white outfits.

An affordable way to add this color trend to your own home would be to refinish an existing piece with ‘Cut the Mustard’ paint. If you don’t have a piece in mind, find something at a local thrift store or flea market.

This color looks lovely in cream and white interiors. So fresh but spunky!

Plum and burnt orange. Here’s a color combination I can get on board with. The white accents keeps the look from getting too dark.

This scene is absolutely gorgeous! The pale blush tones of the dresses against an autumn yellow and burnt orange tree is so pretty.
