Sometimes all you need is an expected color pop to completely change the look of a space and give it a real sense of dynamism. A while back I had done a post on the eternally classic color duo of black and white. Recently, I came across images of a few spaces where a burst of bright canary yellow has been used along with the black & white combo, with dramatic results. There is nothing over-the-top about the way yellow has been used- just as an accent. I think Black & White + Yellow is just such a fabulous combination!
A burst of a bright color can be incorporated in any space and irrespective of the style you are aiming for. It can work just as well in a minimal setting as well as a classic Art Deco inspired setting. Take a look... hope these images inspire you as much as it has inspired me.
