Are you of the opinion that black, white and neutrals are way too commonplace and a tad too minimal for your personality? If the answer to that question is yes, then you might want to consider going for rich and distinctive jewel tones in order to pep your domain and give it a lush vibe.
Jewel tones, sounds so inviting! But wondering what exactly are they? That's easy, any rich and highly saturated colour tone which resembles well known gemstones would be considered a jewel tone. In simple words, these colours represent the colours of beautiful jewels that have been used since centuries by humans for beautification and range from emerald green, amethyst purple, ruby red to topaz yellow! It's a no brainer that any colour that is associated with precious jewels would bestow the same qualities to your interiors. A vibrant, rich, lush and distinct look is what you will experience if you are going to go for jewel tones.
You have the choice to go either all out to create a jewel box like room, or use the colours sparingly in furniture and accessories to brighten up an otherwise understated interior. Whatever your choice may be, jewel tones are sure to stand out and catch anyone's attention at first glance!
