Color Fabulous: Metro Chic

I love the soft, yet sultry colors in the Metro Chic palette. While bordering on the antediluvian on their own, there can be a classic, modern, vintage and romantic touch to the palette depending upon the way you take it or choose to express yourself:

stately black candelabras
decadent croquembouche
lush pink peonies
sparkling champagne
vintage chest
romantic handwritten love letter
platinum tufted chair
Parisian fashion 

black candlesticks, pink peonies, champagne, croquembouche

Color Fabulous: Navy + Yellow

There’s just something about the blend of navy and yellow that exudes class, sophistication and style.  These colors aren’t quiet in the slightest– they expect and demand to be noticed, which is why it is imperative that when used for your wedding that they are styled tastefully.  They can be used for a gorgeous summer outdoor wedding or add a little pop to a cosmopolitan night affair.
