Mustard and Maize: An Ode to Nature's Brilliance
Mustard and maize are rich, earthy shades of yellow that draw inspiration from the natural world. Mustard, reminiscent of the golden fields of ripened grains, exudes warmth, sophistication, and energy. On the other hand, maize, a shade of bright yellow akin to sunflowers and cornfields, conveys joy, positivity, and vitality. These colors have a unique ability to uplift our spirits and add a touch of sunshine to any look.
