Bold, regal, elegant, and sophisticated – these are just some of the words you can use to describe the charm of jewel-toned colours. They’re powerful and can make your homes feel very gorgeous. Here are 5 tips for emulating them in your homes:
1. With sheer fabric in the backdrop
You can emulate a sense of whimsy in your home interiors by setting up a jewel-themed furniture pieces as a foreground for some sheer curtains. The hazy, semi-opaque luminescence can set off the bright colours brilliantly – especially when there’s a lot of natural light. The navy couch with a backdrop of light-infused sheer curtains in this image is a great example.
Moody jewel-toned colours need a bright, airy, and spacious surrounding to feel truly impactful. When the ambiance is the right blend of light-hearted, the dark colours of the jewel-toned accent piece can shine more fully. The sofa with its surroundings of bright whites and easy-going natural textures in this image is exactly how you can emulate this technique in your homes.
3. A unique design element for company
A contemporary design element can make your space feel rather interesting on its own, but when you accent it with a jewel-toned furniture piece, it looks even more stunning. If you’re wondering what sort of a design element it might be, just take a look at this image for inspiration. Alternately, classical design elements such as wall beading and carved wall art can also be used.
4. Neutral surroundings
Jewel-tones have an extremely royal vibe. They’re largely used to accent spaces, this is why the colour scheme of their surroundings have to be three or four shades lighter. A neutral theme is very much appreciated. In fact, it adds a certain level of elegance and sophistication within the space that makes the jewel-toned fabric or painting or artwork stand out even more.
5. Use mirrors
Extensive use of jewel-toned colours in small spaces can turn them a little overbearing, but you can make it all better – if not more charming and glamorous – by using lots of mirrors to manage the spatial arrangement. This can help add more depth and illusive spaciousness to the ambiance while bringing out the best of such bold colours.
