Strong colors subdued

The canvas: Cool white stands up to the blocks of primary-strength colors.

The coordinating pair: Bright red and saturated green could go “holidays” fast. Keep them separate and sparing to avoid that.

The unifier: Small hits of black temper the bold colors and makes the combo sophisticated.

The surprise: Yellow, in shades varying from squash to lemon, takes this palette out of color-block land.
