Perfect Palettes: Pink and Gold

Martha Stewart Weddings, Winter 2007

America fell in love with blushing pink and gold during the 1940s and 1950s. The palette, which suggested both the romance and glamour of Hollywood, hinted at a playful femininity and came to represent fine couture, days at the beach and on boardwalks, and lighthearted sophistication.

Borrow from the nostalgic palette of exuberant pinks and shimmering golds on the following pages to create a wedding that is elegant without being stuffy. Shell pinks, cherry-blossom tones, misty rose, and cotton-candy pinks are just the beginning.

Combine as many pinks as you like (they mix and match with surprising ease), then crown them in glittering golds.
