Turmeric has been used in the kitchen to add flavor to Asian dishes for centuries. A relative of ginger, the mineral-rich spice is also known for its health benefits as an anti-inflammatory and powerful antioxidant. Now, turmeric’s warm, earthy hue is popping up in interior design. The rich mustard color is appearing in everything from porcelain tile and lighting to appliances and backsplashes. Rather than shy away, consider taking a risk and adding a dash of turmeric if you are looking for that extra layer of unexpected character in your home.
