Dijon is a dark, richer version of the colour yellow.

The colour psychology of yellow says that it is uplifting and illuminating, offering hope, happiness, cheerfulness and fun. In the meaning of colour, yellow inspires original thinking and inquisitiveness. Similar characteristics can be considered when thinking of the Dijon colour.

Dijon, as one of the mustard family, encourages creativity. From a mental aspect, it is a colour of new ideas that helps us to find inspiration. Dijon would be one of the best choices to consider  when adding a bit of spice to our lives, confidence and optimism.

We love working with DULUX colours due to their wide range of colour choices.

Our favourite Dijon DULUX range: DULUX 40YY38/643 & DULUX 45YY51/758


DULUX 40YY38/643 & DULUX 45YY51/758


Bold in its richness, Dijon is one of those colours that might not be everybody’s cup of tea. A select few of our clients took the brave step and embraced it in their interiors.

In our Ballsbridge Residence, we have used a mustard sofa throw & cushion to bring a strong accent colour to predominantly navy blue library room. The dijon worked really well in combination with various blue tones that were used throughout the room.

In our Wicklow Residence, a mustard armchair brightened up space and worked really nicely with the natural materials like timber and stone.

We would recommend using various tones of mustard colour with neutrals or blues. If you are aiming for something unusual and daring, opt in for a pattern mustard wallpaper. Wallpaper can be used on a feature wall or as the background for wall shelves. This little trick will instantly add an interest to your room.






Painting Inspiration

When it comes to paint there are endless possibilities to update any home.. You can play it safe and paint the walls a fresh new shade for an instant uplift, or go brave taking inspiration from some of our ‘outside the box’ painting ideas!

Paint is a cost effective, quick and easy way to inject personality and colour into any space. Be brave and take a risk, if it doesn’t work simply paint it again but 9 times out of 10 the risk will pay off giving you a unique interior and a talking point when you have friends over.

From colour blocking to pops of neon and geometric designs to watercolour murals the key is to be playful! Use paint to define spaces, highlight areas and draw attention to key pieces. Check out the full colour range from Dulux with a wide selection of bold, bright and neutral colours you will find the perfect shade for any project.
