The canvas: A cool white forms the background in this dramatic palette. Paint furniture pieces the same color as the wall to help them fade and make a space look bigger.
The pop: Bright yellow is like a vitamin C shot for a room. It makes plain white look modern and crisp. Use it in at least three places so it doesn’t look random.
The accent: Black makes the yellow-and-white combo sexy.
The glitz: Choose silver rather than gold for a contemporary pairing with warm yellow.
