When a colleague of my at work turned 21 recently, I was asked to embroider his initials on a set of handkerchiefs. I used co-ordinating colours which blended in quite nice.
His parents gave his room a makeover, so I decided his bathroom needs one too. So, I embroidered a set of towels for him.
I used a silver/black mixed metallic thread which co-ordinated with the charcoal towels with just a little bit of silver in the scrolls.
