Are you as crazy about jewel tones as we are? Then it makes sense that you’d want to adorn your house in some cool jewel tone décor.
When it comes to incorporating jewel tones, they key is balance. Jewel tones are as luxurious as they are colorful. Paired with neutral accents and down to earth touches, you can give your room a comfortable pop of color without getting too eccentric.
Here are a few ways you can reinvigorate your space with some trendy hues and classic touches for the perfect combination of modern, chic décor.
Start with the furniture
Your furniture makes a bold statement about your decorating scheme. Start with a plush, comfortable chair that incorporates a bright blue, bold pattern, and plenty of white. We suggest this chair from Pier 1. By adding a splash of color with just the right balance of neutral tones, you get a healthy dose of jewel tones in your furniture without going overboard.
Use your lamps as accent pieces.
Your table lamps are small but mighty when it comes to decorating. Use them to bring out bursts of color without overwhelming the room with too much flair. We love this small table lamp from Pier 1. The purple is just the right match with the blue in the chair making these two jewel tones a dynamic pairing.
Bring the bold colors together in the curtains.
Your curtains frame your room. This is where you can really make your jewel tone designs shine. Add curtains that bring together all the jewel tones in your room in a subtle way. Paisley or peacock patterns are perfect for this. If you’re using purple and blue, you might want to opt for this curtain from Pier 1.
Offset the décor with a neutral toned art piece.
Now that you’ve added a few brightly color pieces, it’s time to bring your décor back down to earth – with an earth tone wall hanging that is! This earth-tone peacock wall hanging is perfect for a jewel toned room. It offers a slightly ironic touch. With it, you can stir up conversation, add a unique dynamic to your space, and bring out a classic look with beiges and browns.
Add whitewashed floors for a classic, yet modern look.
Whitewashed oak floors are hot right now. They’re perfect for beach front cottages and shabby chic designs. With a whitewashed floor in your room, you can downplay the loud colors. Instead, you create a healthy contrast between neutral and colorful making your home look like an artful masterpiece.
