Sunny yellow and dark navy make a sophisticated color palette that also energizes a room. The effect comes through the contrast: Yellow brings out the rich depth of navy, which in turn amplifies the brightness of the lemony hue. It’s a combination that feels more current than gray and yellow, yet is equally adaptable to virtually any space. Ready to try it out in your home?
