Decorating Style

Mustard, Ochre, Gold, and Copper

Everything I’m drawn to lately is in these warm yellow tones. Below is a mix of items on my wish list, along with favorites that I already own and would highly recommend. May it be useful for those in your life with the same color preferences! (Though to be fair, almost every single one of these come in other colors too.)

A Gift Guide in Mustard & Ochre, Gold, & Copper

For the Home

  1. Real Good Chair, Blu Dot
    Ours is developing a patina so nicely.

  2. Classic Velvet Bedding (Fall Leaf), Williams-Sonoma Home
    Velvet bedding is the best for chilly winters.

  3. Italian Velvet Pillows (Sunflower), Rejuvenation
    And velvet pillows are the best, just because they’re so dang pretty.

  4. Eve Brushed Gold Serving Fork and Spoon Servers, Unisom Home
    Simple and pretty.

  5. KitchenAid ® Copper Metallic Series Stand Mixer, Crate & Barrel
    My mixer broke after twelve years’ use (sad face). While I will be attempting to repair it, I dream of the copper version.

For Feeling Cozy

  1. Italian Cashmere Crewneck Sweater (Hazelnut), J.Crew
    Perhaps more brown than ochre, but I’m into it nonetheless.

  2. Fun Knitted Pinafore Dress, Boden
    Wintry and adorable.

  3. Woodside Pullover Sweater, Madewell
    A chunky knit and a boxy but flattering shape. Nice.

  4. Bunny Velour Hat & Bootie Set, Nordstrom
    OMG. Baby! Why do you look sad when you are the cutest sweetest little thing ever?

  5. Knit Cotton Sweater, H&M
    I’m cheating with the color palette here as there’s just the tiniest bit of color, but sometimes that’s all you need.

    The Real Good Chair – how sharp are the edges? I’ve always loved it but wonder how it’ll be for little ones using it regularly.
    By the way, the sledding chicken people are adorable

      They aren’t too sharp. I was concerned too with the kids zooming past. (And glad to hear that someone besides me likes the new header!)

    I was able to repair my kitchen aid mixer. The speed lever was bent after being knocked over by the dog (the mixer was on the floor) and we had only one speed and couldn’t turn it off without unplugging. Even though it was intimidating taking the motor apart i there were good instructions that came with my replacement lever and I found lots of diagrams online.

      Glad to hear it can be done! From what I’ve read, it’s likely the worm gear that needs to be replaced on mine and it’s fairly straightforward. Just haven’t gotten around to ordering the part yet (though I should get on that).
