Color Combinations with Yellow

Yellow is a pretty intense color, so the safest way to use it is as an accent color to a neutral background. If you choose a more neutral tone of yellow, like mustard, you can use it as a background color.  Lets take a look at some great ways to use yellow:

A good rule is that the stronger the color, the less you need of it. But remember there are always exceptions to these rules, and playing with different shades and tones of color can give fantastic results!
