Yellow and blue is a classic color scheme that has not been limited to any one particular style.  With hues that represent the sun and sky, these colors naturally go together, and they’re very easy to live with.

Yellow and blue is the perfect balance of warm and cool colors, so it creates a very comfortable feeling for many people.

To spice up this classic combination, experiment with different variations.  Instead of a pale predictable yellow, consider using a golden saffron or a youthful lemon yellow.  Likewise, forgo the the usual sky blue or navy, and try turquoise or teal.



Yellow and blue is a timeless color scheme that will suit any room in your home and it’ll never look dated.  Those are a couple of good reasons to give it a try!

  1. Thank you so much for doing a Yellow & Blue feature! My fiance’s FAVORITE color is that electrifying (or maybe electrocuting) shade of runaway, royal blue. I’ve decided to do the bathroom in blue and yellow (because of the funky pre-existing dark green and beige-green tile scheme). I know it will be hard, and the road full of potential color pitfalls, but this page gave me some really great ideas!

  2. I love that Jamie Drake library — it’s one of my favourite rooms by him :-)

    I voted for you in rounds 1 & 2 of the Apartment Therapy contest :-) Your office is beautiful and colourful and I love it :-)
