Primary colors are making a come-back... whether the influence is a reflection to the past or a look into the future. It provides a palate that is clean, fun, and striking. These colors can be combined with a neutral backdrop as an accent or the opposite. It's all up to the imagination.
The Mondrian's paintings of the 1920's remind me of this modern shift of style where blocks of color were painted to stand out from a structured backdrop.
