Jewel Tones

Emeralds, rubies, sapphires, and other precious jewels are so luxurious and inspiring – that’s why I love jewel-toned colors in the home!

Jewel tones bring drama and sophistication to a space, making a dramatic statement. These colors are often very saturated, so you may want to mix them with neutrals or softer tones. And you don’t want to put intensely saturated colors in a room that is meant to be relaxing or spa-like. These colors are all about the drama!

You can also use touches of these jewel tones to draw the eye, like designers Traci Zeller and Lisa Mende did with this gorgeous emerald chest. Set in a room of neutrals, this piece really stands out!

Designer Michelle Workman chose sapphires to accessorize this bright and beautiful living room. And Amanda Nisbet chose the same jewel tone to wrap an entire hallway.
