Decorating with jewel tones

For those wanting to change up their home’s decor, look no further. Jewel tones are the way to do it. These colors are derived from precious gems, like topaz, amethyst, emerald green, sapphire and ruby. All of these different shades add an element of elegance and intensity to your home’s aesthetic. Here are some tips for decorating your home with jewel tones:

Paint your walls (carefully)

Painting your walls a jewel color is a daring move, but if it’s done right, it creates a whole different ambiance to your home. If you’re looking to take this bold step, choose a room with a lot of space. Darker colors will make the area look cozier, so you want to make sure there’s enough room to begin with. Pick a shade that already matches your home’s aesthetic. The color amethyst can add to your bohemian decor, and a golden tone works great with a industrial-style home full of distressed wood and worldly figurines.

Looking for something different, but don’t want to paint the entire room? Easy. Try an accent wall instead. That way, you can still incorporate jewel-toned paint, just in a smaller dose.

Try an accent piece

“Accent furniture is a great way to make a room pop.”

If painting your walls isn’t on your to-do list, don’t worry. There are plenty of other ways you can incorporate jewel tones into your home, particularly with accent pieces. Is your living room lacking a little color? Add a stylish blue chair to the space. It doubles as a place to sit and a statement piece of furniture to make your living room pop! You’d be surprised by how much one bold-colored chair can transform the overall vibe of a room. Just make sure you pick something that’s comfy, too!

Look to the master bedroom

If there’s one room that will benefit from the integration of jewel tones, it’s definitely the master bedroom. Purple is known as the color of royalty and nobility, which makes it the perfect option for your bedroom. Decorate this space with luxurious bedding sets in various shades of blue or purple, like midnight velvet (that’s us!) or lapis. If your bedding doesn’t need an upgrade, just add some decorative pillows instead.

Keep the lighting in mind

All colors look different depending on your home’s lighting. Rooms with large, open windows let in a lot of brightness, making even the darkest jewel tone reflect light. On the other hand, a room without any windows is typically darker, making the space feel more intimate and comfy. Decide on what kind of vibe you’re looking to exude in your space, and try a shade that will complement your desired aesthetic. But remember that your options aren’t limited to natural lighting. A faux plant with LED lights or a decorative lamp can complete a room and brighten it up.

I am tired of my LR furniture and ready for a change. I don’t intend to get rid of it b/it belonged to a dearly departed friend. But I am interested in using the blue chairs and a new entertainment center. I love the white chaise, but couldn’t find the price; whatever suggestions you might have, would be greatly appreciated!!
