Burgundy, Rose, Blush, Crimson

While burgundy pairs effortlessly with competing colors, we can’t help but love a semi-monochromatic approach! This combination of burgundy, rose, blush, and crimson is equal parts feminine and bold, as it commits to developing its color story from a single hue. Plus, how gorgeous is that rose-colored stationery!
