Let's think Bold & Elegant - Jewel Tones
Bold, Elegant & Rich - Setting the whole Vibe with Jewel tones. I love how Jewel Tones make their way back into the home accent trends. I have always been about Jewel tones with my clothing and am happy to incorporate them in my home or homes I'm staging for sale or Airbnb. I wanted to write a quick post about which ones to use and how to work with them. I hope this helps a bit and inspires you to be bold and give them a try.
To start, When you hear Jewel Tone Colors. It's just that, Think Sapphire, Emerald, Amethyst Light or Dark, Garnet, Citrine, and Topaz. The colors of Jewels and Precious stones. The tones can range from Mid-tone to Saturated, My favorite is Mature Grape, which is named after a Fruit, but the color falls in the rich Jewel tone color wheel. Below are a few colors that I feel make excellent Jewel Tone colors. If you click the swatch, it will take you to the manufactures page with more information about the color.

I can't say enough about this lovely and lucky Shamrock Green by Sherwin Williams. If yellow is your thing, I find this Yellow Curry to be bold and bright yet rich earth all in the same.

So now that we discussed some beautiful Jewel tone colors to work with, Let's dive into how to style the space and what colors to play with for accents. I'll start by saying the obvious and something I can not stress enough. You NEED live plants. Not only are houseplants the perfect way to accent your space with green, but they are also great for purifying the air, and if appropriately placed, they make for the perfect ambiance. Watch for my Plant Care and Feng Shi post coming soon.
So when it comes to pairing colors, I like to mix in creams and ivory, and pairing the colors themselves works well too. A cream rug brings in some texture with throw pillows or a throw; accents of gold go well with blue and green, while I like using black and white with the deep yellow curry. Working with color is fun, and it adds spice to your space. I hope you enjoy the post and it helps inspire you somehow. The opinions expressed in the blog post are my own, and the colors are colors I have worked with. Thanks for reading, and please follow for more Homestyle posts.
