Bold Splashes of Deep Primary Colors, Known as Jewel Tones, Are Taking Over the Interior Design World | Source: Rikki Snyder
Using jewel tones in your home decor is a great way to expand the depth of space and spread rich hues in well-lit areas.
Historically, precious and semi-precious stones have been used to signify wealth, status and royalty (think crowns etc.) and so when we see these interrupted jewel tones in modern design they instantly give a feeling of distinction.
From shimmering gold accents to ruby reds, emerald greens and bold sapphires. Here are the best jewel-toned colors and pieces to incorporate into your home decor to give your home a sense of royalty.
Emerald green sofa
This three and a half seater sofa comes in verdant emerald green and looks majestic when paired with gleaming gold or smooth porcelain, it’s versatile and perfectly suited to stand out against a wall of lighter color.
A perfect example of a larger jewel-colored piece of furniture, its color scheme could be continued throughout the home or combined with a magenta armchair.
The deep ruby red of this chair is reminiscent of your favorite lipstick and will add the perfect pop of color to any space. Bring this room to life by adding brass decor accents, sapphire and eggshell elements in the draperies and shelving for a modern touch.
Moody teal and gold accents
Teal and gold are a classic jewel tone combination and one that never really gets old. This combination of wallpaper and headboard lends a magical quality and can inject energy into a dull and otherwise ordinary space. We love this combination for a guest bedroom or powder room.
Jewel Abstract Geometric Rug
Dreamy geometry and vivid shades of emerald and ruby conjure up images of colorful New York apartments with bespoke wood furnishings and views of the city skyline.
This rug is a serious combination of deep colors and gemstone shapes in a pleasing design, a centerpiece for anyone looking to add glamorous tones to their interiors.
Cobalt Leather Pendant
This mid-century modern nightshade is made of brass and hand-stitched leather and is available in cobalt, emerald green, camel, black, and berry.
It is an amazing addition to any room and provides a great focus center, it is inspired by the works of Colombian artist Fernando Botero as well as the tradition of Colombian saddle making, Talabartero translates by “master saddler”.
Inverness SW 6433, Sherwin-Williams
This colorway would be well suited to an office or dining room and pairs well with darker wood tones and bronze, a must if you like the way the light specks through the trees and a great color so that bright natural light comes through.
Cascades SO 7623, Sherwin-Williams
This beautiful jewel tone is reminiscent of high quality interiors and opulent fixtures, best suited for pairing with bright gold due to its dark teal hue, it would be well used as a feature color in a kitchen or bathroom.
Brushed Clay, Magnolia Home
A soothing shade of ochre, this color is reminiscent of citrine but with a softer, calmer feel. Makes a great color blocker when you want to show off some cool vintage furniture.
Crushed Velvet 2076-10, Benjamin Moore
A vibrant and welcoming hue that would be perfect for a front door or hallway accenting this color is not for the faint hearted, it leaps off the wall and makes a perfect backdrop for muted shades and dramatic silhouettes.
