I love mixing outrageously bold colors with softer more romantic ones. Here, vermillion orange and pale blush pink make up a palette that’s both sweet and sexy – bold regency romance. Each element adds to the opulence: elaborate florals, satin shoes, rubies, truffles, and ostrich feathers.

Mood: Russian ballet meets Paris ballet
Palette: vermillion orange, blush pink, hints of gold

    Your right these colours go really well together! It almost oriental and not too overpowering considering its orange.

    So beautiful and the fact that you added Charbonnel et Walker truffles made me ooooh! So happy. Their Champagne truffles are my absolute favorite.
