Mood: glamorous elegance with a Deco twist
Palette: candle white, gold leaf, navy blue

I started this inspiration board with the idea to create something entirely gold and white, but when I came across the Charbonnel et Walker box of chocolates, with it’s gold edge and navy blue lettering, I immediately switched gears to incorporate navy blue into the palette. And I love it! I chose to use navy as a simple accent, rather than a dominant color, and I think it works wonderfully to temper what might otherwise be an overwhelming amount of gold.

    i was happy to find a color palette close to what I’m doing. I am having a 1020/30s vintage vow renewal. My them will be “All that glitters is not gold”. My colors will be Sapphire, silver, gold. Your board is the first I’ve come across with the formal,glamorous look I’m going for. Your wedding was absolutely stunning.
