I love the richness of jewel tone colors. They have a warmth and sophistication about them that makes them so appealing to me. These highly saturated colors are aptly named because the tones resemble those of precious gems. This time of year they are especially popular. Even mother nature seems to get in on it, “decorating” fall in dynamic ruby, topaz and amethyst. Because the colors are so intense, they tend to make less vibrant colors seem dull and boring. That is why it is always best to match them up with equally as intense tones. You can also pair them up with black, white, brown grey or other neutrals.
Dramatic jewel tones help to create a room’s ambiance. They can make a large, stark room seem more intimate and inviting. While small rooms can become even more cozy, enveloping you in the richness of the color. When decorating a room with jewel tones, keep things unified by choosing accessories and pieces that have the same intensity. I’ve selected 5 rooms in popular jewel tone colors for you today. A few have a lot of the chosen color. The others have touches for accent. I wanted to show you that you can vary the amount of color you add to a room. It’s all about what you like and are comfortable with. They are all beautiful rooms. I hope you enjoy them and find some inspiration for your home.
