8 EASY WAYS WITH JEWEL TONES AT HOME


THE FEATURE WALL

A jewel-inspired feature wall is an instant game changer. Try a bold emerald shade for a sophisticated and glamorous look that complements a myriad of colours such as magenta and turquoise. Dark paint is key to making your already existing accessories pop with new life.
THE STATEMENT CHAIR

Add spark to a room with a statement chair. The key to making this look work is keeping it to just one striking sit. A regal sapphire armchair can draw the eyes in, but don’t forget to take note of the style of its legs – this is your way of seamlessly fusing the piece with the rest of your room.

Tip: Achieve a cohesive look to your jewel-inspired palette
with brass and gold accents.


THE CUSHION CRUSH

Use cushions to build your confidence with a new colour scheme. They’re inexpensive and easy to move around from room-to-room when it comes to an instant refresh.

THE BOLD FRONT DOOR

Make a memorable first impression with a fresh lick of paint on the front door. A bold shade at the entrance is a low-cost way to personalise your space, and hint at what’s to come inside. It’s an easy DIY project you can knock out in a weekend.

THE NATURAL TOUCH

It can be as simple as a few polyanthus flowers or citrine-coloured paper daisies in a bud vase when it comes to injecting a bolt of jewel-like colour into your room. Opt for polyanthus flowers in rich red shades or violet varieties to brighten up interiors.
THE ART WITH SPARK

Take your room’s existing gem-inspired colours to the next level with art. Choosing art that features the same emeralds and amethysts already present in your decor makes for a complete and cosy feel to the space.

Tip: Use jewel tones in areas you don’t spend a lot of time in such as bathrooms, hallways, and dining rooms. This way you can cosy up to the idea of vivid shades over time.


THE EASY ACCESSORIES

Keep your look fresh by playing with accessories. If you’re loving the jewel palette this season, but aren’t sure you’ll want to see it through the next, swap out smaller, inexpensive accessories such as vases, vessels, and candles for an instant revamp.
THE COSY CURE

Rugs are an easy way to transform a room, but it’s not uncommon to see decorators opt out of bold shades and striking patterns in fear of overdoing it. The key is to not be intimidated. Once your rug is on the ground and surrounded by furniture, it’s jewel shade or gemstone pattern won’t be a big shock.
