A couple of weeks back, I did an inspiration board featuring copper, grey, lilac and a touch of navy. Well, I loved that one, but the whole copper and navy combo clearly made a bit of an impression because ever since, I’ve been wanting to do a sort of antique but preppy-looking take on navy and grey with copper as the magic ingredient. And I have to say, I think it’s a winner – the perfect mix of modern, sophisticated and old world romance. One thing to remember if you pick a palette like this, is there’s no need to be matchy-matchy. For example, I love the idea of having the bridesmaids in white, and the groom and his guys in grey. So stylish! But it also means you don’t have overkill on the colours, which on a blank(ish) canvas, really speak for themselves.
