Fresh Color Combo: Black and Yellow

And now, in honor of my friend Vicki's very favorite football team, here is a a Steelers-inspired color roundup.

Even if you would never dream of rooting for Pittsburgh, you have to admit there's something about the black and yellow mix. Black is mysterious and sophisticated, and cheerful yellow keeps things from getting too serious.
