If the changing leaves have you daydreaming over new hues for your home, maybe it’s time to swap out your pastels for an autumnal yellow shade like ochre. Whether you prefer a bold mustard color or more subtle yellow tones, ochre is a unique hue that echoes the beauty of the great outdoors. When paired with chic accessories and bold textures, ochre brings the ultimate fall color for prepping your home before you welcome the holidays. Scroll on to see 18 ways you can decorate your home with ochre.


1. Navy Blue: The combo of navy blue and ochre yellow totally slays. The rich yellow color beautifully balances chilly blue tones, especially when you add cheery accents like coral pink and orange. (via Oh Happy Day)


2. Blushing Pink: If you’re looking for one must-have to update your bedroom for fall, experiment with this rich tone. An ochre and peach quilt warms up the bedroom and ends up acting like a neutral, while letting the teal and blue tones pop. (via Greenhouse Interiors)


3. Pink Color Crush: Picking up some new throw pillows should already be one of your list of fall decorating priorities. It’s an affordable update that’s an easy way to play with a trendy color palette. Try testing out ochre with dark navy and blush pink bedding. (via Adore)


4. Earthy Tones: Ochre pairs wonderfully with jewel tones like navy blue, teal and magenta. Add a splash of sunshine to your kitchen backsplash, then score extra points with the addition of blush pink dishes or light rustic wood. (via C More)


5. Accent Wall: A little modern and a little retro, this bold dining room is bright in all the right places. With white floors, open shelving and a black dining table, the space feels both cheery and sophisticated. (via House to Home)


6. Bold Accessories: Ochre planters will make your indoor garden pop. You get all the warmth and joy of a yellow space without worrying about regretting a new wall paint or expensive throw rug. (via My Attic)


7. Texture Play: It doesn’t get more boho and playful than this curated living room. Gray is one of the best colors to pair with mustard yellow because it’s easily able to hold its own against the strong hue. Whether you go for gray throw pillows or a gray rug or pouf, you can’t go wrong with these two colors. (via Paper & Stitch)


8. Take a Seat: Your reading nook could be the perfect space to try out this trendy tone, whether it’s with a vintage flea market chair or a retro piece your parents had in the attic. If you’re hesitant of its boldness, don’t be! This muted sunny hue is right at home in a warm and neutral color palette. (via A Beautiful Mess)


9. Throw-Pillow Magic: Grab a yellow ochre throw pillow, and that vintage chair can be transformed into the coolest seat in the house. Give every space a gilded and vibrant makeover with a few key accessories, like throw blankets and pillows. (via Urban Outfitters)


10. Dash of Pastel: If you’re looking for one way to bring your pastel home decor into a new season, a single piece of ochre decor will instantly update your space. Ochre plays well with all members of the pastel family, from soft pink to light blues and purples. (via Emily Henderson)


11. Nature Vibes: Even though that couch is a kind of a beige shade of ochre, the forest green accent wall and warm textural accents (think: leather and wood) give it a stunning yellow undertone. Now that you’re spending more time indoors, cozy up your space with plenty of nature-inspired pieces like plant wall art and an indoor garden. (via Bolig)


12. Make an Entrance: Plant game is *V* strong here. Warm, peachy hues with lots of blues will forever be one of the ultimate color crushes for fall. It’s amazing how a pop of mustard yellow (that door though!) can tie everything together. (via Front + Main)


13. Bold Bedding: Throw pillows or a new duvet cover make for an easy, cost-effective way to inject some color into your bedroom. Blush pink sheets, a killer teal wall and a neutral floor rug ensure the bold duvet won’t completely overwhelm the room. (via Urban Outfitters)


14. Moody Chic: Forget about that almost-black bedroom wall color (swoon!). It’s the pink and ochre bedding that steals the show in this bedroom. (via Adore)


15. Half and Half: Mustard and pastel pink go together like PB&J. If you’re looking for a stunning way to perk up your pastel space, break out the ochre wall paint for a half wall. Seal the deal with copper accents, a rustic wood table and modern seating. (via Vtwonen)


16. Bring in the Art: A gallery wall can be the *perf* way to try out a new color palette, without committing to a new couch or paint color. Against a dark teal backdrop, this unique collection of wall art feels equal parts retro and elegant. (via Front + Main)


17. Light and Bright: Feeling bold? This jaw-droppingly gorgeous home is totally rocking that ochre mustard accent wall. Keep the space bright and fresh with pastel pink, gray and black accessories for a totally Scandi vibe. (via Vtwonen)


18. Rustic Tones: Even if you’re not a huge fan of bright yellow, mustard yellow is a whole different ball game. Its earthy undertones bring an element of warmth, without being a boring neutral. Take a cue from this glam bedroom and add subtle accents, like a single throw pillow or a piece of statement art. (via Adore)
