Rubies, emeralds and sapphires, oh my! We all love jewels and the saturated colors of multi-faceted beauty contained therein. If you crave color and want to make your interiors sing with vibrancy, decorating with jewel tones is the way to accomplish this. Take a look at some of these amazing rooms for inspiration and learn how you can achieve gem-like rooms.
Dare to be bold by mixing various jewel tones in one room. Paint the walls purple and accent with blue sapphire, emerald green and topaz. Keep accessories to a minimum so that the room doesn’t become overwhelmed.
Paint is a way to quick color. Paint a whole room in a jewel tone, such as bright aqua, bold emerald green, seductive ruby red or sophisticated sapphire blue. Use the color in accents elsewhere in the room. Keep it all one color or add other colors for brilliant contrast.
White walls set a dramatic background for colors to stand out. They offer a blank canvas and neutralize the room. Place other white accessories throughout the room for a nice balance.
Go for beautiful jewel tone fabrics on furniture and mix it up. Pair a blue velvet sofa with purple or emerald chairs. Try a different gem colored fabric for every dining room chair to create a melody of jewels around the table.
If you’re not ready to take the full plunge into an array of jewel-tone colors throughout your room, add just a few pieces to accent. Place vibrant throw pillows on the sofa, add a vase of fresh colorful flowers or use a bold area rug.
Immerse yourself in just a pair of jewel tones, such as sapphire blue with emerald green or deep amethyst. Mix with metallic, white or black to balance out the room.
Create rooms worthy of a fine platinum or gold setting; rooms that glow with brilliant color and cool sophistication. Whether you choose ruby red, blue sapphire, emerald green or other beautiful jewel tones, play with contrasts and enjoy the multi-faceted mix.
