    I like theme number 1 the best, I might even consider eliminating emerald and just using gold ivory & Pantone emerald

    The maroon looks a little harsh, and the emerald/pantone emerald can create texture through color without looking aggresive. Have you considered a deep accent color, like Navy or Plum? Sometimes a touch of dark color creates an interesting surprise, or dramatic pop of color.

    When I think 1920’s I think silvers, golds, navy, etc. I’d say look up some art work from 1920 For inspiration. Check out Alphonse Mucha which was a famous illustrator at the time and did magazine illustrations. 🙂

    I think the first one is best. I would definitely stick with mostly metallics either silver oor gold with some accent colour to add interest. When I think 1920s I always think of beautiful metallic textures.

    I agree with @kittywolf13 – when I think of 1920s, I think gold, silver, black, white, maybe navy?

    Definitely palette number 1 but I like the idea of using metallics as well.

    I would say keep the gold and the ivory. I feel like the pantone emerald in the first selection is closer to the emerald in the second selection for some reason. Either way, I’d say keep that one because it seems to be aricher more vibrant emerald color. As for a 4th color i agree with a navy or a black (what will FH wear?). When I think of 1920s I mainly think gold ivory and black. You should be able to find a lot on pinterest too.

    The only problem I see is with two greens people might think you were going for one green and just did a poor job matching colors. They’re pretty close.

    I don’t really like either colour choices. I would stick to gold & champagne colours.
