This moody mix of wine and navy is well suited for an elegant evening celebration or a winter wedding. Both colors evoke richness and pair beautifully with a gold or silver metallic.
How To Use It: Decide which color you want to lead the palette and which will be your accent – both colors are strong, and work equally well for a formal or casual celebration. Regardless of your leading hue, you’ll want to stick to Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year, marsala, for your florals since few varieties come in blue. Consider offering a cocktail with a fruit garnish (blackberry or figs) for your signature sip. Midnight is a classic choice for apparel, invitations and small details like custom matchboxes or welcome bags. Try a marsala runner on wood tables or lighten the palette in warmer months with taupe linen.
