Usage of #dec401

Recommendations for light backgrounds in respect of a good contrast.

Usage for Text: not recommended (low contrast)
Usage for headings: not recommended (low contrast)

Usage for buttons: watch out for enough contrast

As a rather light shade, this color can very well be used as a fill/background, also to bigger elements. If there is no obvious reason, we do not recommend using it as text-color on white backgrounds (low contrast gives bad accessability-rating). Some usage-examples for #dec401
