Elegant Black + Gold

Is there anything more timeless, more elegant, and more appropriate for a New Year’s fete than a black and gold color palette? Modern and chic with a bit of sparkle, the color choice of deep black and glittering gold adds instant drama to a ballroom soiree—one that’s complete with a healthy dose of candlelight, of course! We can’t get enough of this perfect pairing!
