Aqua + Cobalt + Yellow Cobalt blue and sunny yellow is such a classic combination, but when I want to throw a new twist into this mix, I like to amp it up with aqua. Because aqua is the combination of blue and yellow, it is a natural fit and can come across as feeling somewhat monochromatic. -- Shazalynn Cavin-Winfrey, designer The Colors: clockwise from top, Blue Ground, 210, Drawing Room Blue, 253, Dayroom Yellow, 233; all Farrow & Ball.
