Blue and yellow are both stunning colors that bring a sense of calm and vibrancy when used together in blue and yellow color palettes. Why is this?
When people think of blue they associate it with feelings of tranquillity and relaxation because it has a calming effect on the mind. When used in a color palette, blue tends to create a serene and soothing look and feel.
On the other hand, shades of yellow, are vibrant and people associate them with feelings of happiness and positivity. When you use yellow in your color palette it tends to create a bright and cheerful look and feel.
