there’s something about the pairing of blue and yellow that just says ‘holiday’ to me. maybe because it reminds of the south of france, and striped umbrellas on the cote d’azur but the color pairing is nothing less than cheerful. sure, it can lend itself to a moodier feel, because let’s face it, both blue and yellow come in many different shades — from perky butter yellow and cobalt blue that simply scream ‘happy’, to rich gold tones combined with deep navy blue that lean towards the dramatic end of the color spectrum. but together they’re a super-powerful color combination! this week’s color story is all about blue & yellow.

  1. Beautiful! The colors of the bathroom and kitchen tile in my new apartment. Along with 16 ft tin ceilings and steam cast iron radiators, I’m in heaven!
