Color Story | Mint + Navy

Traditional navy gets a twist of modern flair in this preppy palette of navy blue and mint. Looking for a color palette that's a bit unique? Why not consider a fresh and sophisticated palette like this one?

A sweet reader of mine named Hannah recently wrote in to me and asked if I could put together a palette using these colors. She really wanted to see if these shades could work together and asked for my advice on what other colors to incorporate. And so off to the drawing board I went... And here you have it! A perfect palette of navy and mint. And yes, it totally works!

I personally like the idea of incorporating a bit of metallic gold throughout. I think it compliments these creative cool colors so nicely. Mix in some striped linens and some fun confetti garland and you're well on your way to setting the scene for fun! So yes! Navy and mint gets my vote. What about you? Are these colors inspiring anyone else to see some new possibilities?
