Jewel Tones: the bold and the beautiful

November 29, 2015

The sparkle of the holidays is upon us and I find myself looking more and more at rich colors, in particular jewel tones. I recently saw the living room pictured above with the most beautiful teal sofa and thought it looked fabulous! Combined with the gold accents and all white walls it is simply stunning!


Jewel tones can take a space up a notch and add a luxurious feel – think colors like amethyst, sapphire, turquoise, ruby, emerald and citrine.


Maybe it’s because we’ve been looking at Mid-Century Modern homes in Sarasota, but I’m hooked!


I’m talking about replacing your neutral sofa with a colorful one – it can be just as timeless. With the power to make any space more exciting, while easily anchoring a room, jeweled-toned sofas shouldn’t be reserved for only the most adventurous. As a lover of all things neutral, I’m loving the change! Keeping the rest of the room simple is the trick I think.

Not ready to commit? How about starting with this:


Need more proof? Here are a few more of my favorite examples of living rooms that embrace jewel tones.
