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.
