Color Combo: Blue and Yellow

In our earlier post on David Netto we mentioned how much we love the blue-and-yellow color combo, so we figured we'd elaborate on how these two colors work together. It's a tricky balance...we're not talking about the IKEA logo color scheme, but rather the buttery blues and yellows of a well-designed space like Monet's bedroom (image via Galen Frysinger).

Yellow can be a very acidic color, so it usually works best with blue if it's a little diluted. Use pale yellows with a range of blues, from robin's egg to navy...
