I think the y+b+g trinity has held its own because it's strong, graphic, classic, a-sexual, a-age..ual. It feels modern without out the chill. It complements architectural features, and in some cases creates some where there is none.
This all coming from someone who ranks yellow, low on a their favorite colors list. I'm sure one day, as with all trends, the triumvirate will be thrown into the bushel with avocado and gold and will no longer seem as current.
But you have to admit, even in nature, this palette is reads fresh and harmonious.
(This little tangent was inspired by these beautiful photos and food shoot by stylist, dietlind wolf and photographer julia hoersch. )
By the way, Dietland Wolf's blog is a total time-suck - in the best way a good blog knows how to be. If you like food and beautiful photography, you're gonna get yanked in so deep. Warning you. Just so you know.
