Love yellow tile, but not sure how to pull it off? Mustard Seed, one of our newest tile colors, is a golden hue with a soft matte finish, its toasty yellow shade emitting warm waves like the late afternoon sun. Despite its earthy tones, Mustard Seed blends beautifully into both classic and contemporary interiors, proof of its versatility and timelessness.
