It’s a known fact: Add a little butter to anything, and the result will be a bit creamier, cozier, and absolutely twice as delectable. But this isn’t just true of real dairy; it’s applicable to color palettes, too. Stick solely to shades of yellow and cream, and there you have it: the #StickOfButter aesthetic, as coined by Man Repeller’s Harling Ross.

When Ross first started talking about #StickOfButter style last winter, it was in relation to fashion. The hashtag has since been used more than 2,000 times, with devotees dressing in warm neutrals with some pops of ultra-pale yellow thrown into the mix. Essentially, visual representations of a generous pat of salted butter that has seeped into the crannies of a lightly toasted piece of fresh sourdough. Pretty satisfying, no?

Buttery vibes, however, aren’t just suited to your wardrobe. They also play nice in your home. All you need to do is layer in the creams and the baby chick yellows, and you’ll be set with an interior that’s as calming as a big pile of pancakes—topped with plenty of butter, of course.
