With seasons changing, it is a perfect time to talk about colour — rich, jewel-toned colours, to be more precise. Autumn always sees us seeking cosiness inside our homes, and while there are numerous ways to warm up a room, not many have such a transformative power like a bold colour choice.
Whether you opt for accents or dare to pull off the entire colour scheme, deep jewel tones like emerald green, ruby, garnet, amethyst and sapphire are promised to add a taste of luxury and refinement into your home. Bringing a sense of lustre and drama, jewel tones will help you make a bold yet very sophisticated statement. Pair them with rich fabrics like velvet and you are in for an ultimate treat!
But be aware! If you’d like to play with the jewel tones inside your home, you need to be ready for a commitment. Jewels are anything but shy, so unless you are willing to adopt a “go big, or go home” mentality, you won’t be able to enjoy their beautiful glow.
Jewel tones are a perfect choice for rooms lacking natural light. Embracing the moody look of the space, jewel tones will add a sparkle to the otherwise dark and gloomy space.
However, they rarely work unless you pair them with their peers, so they can show off against each other and create contrast. Be playful, but make sure not to get too crazy and always, always consult the colour wheel.
A neutral background is also something to consider.
And while the summer may over, a jewel time in the sun is just beginning.
We bring you our vision of a home in the colours of some of our favourite autumnal gemstones, all discovered in the Vinterior treasure box.
