With the sparkling summer sun comes the urge for more excitement, more life, and more color. But the sun doesn’t have to be the only thing sparkling this summer. Decorate your home with jewel tones and bring some of that dazzle indoors.
Here are a few of our favorite ways to incorporate jewel tones into the home for summer.
- Welcome Home Some Bright Backsplash Tile
Installing a backsplash is an easy project that can add a big pop of color. You’ll find backsplash tile in a variety of deep gemstone shades that’ll complement your all wood cabinetry.
One of our personal favorites is the Cristezza Club Glass Tile in Ruby Red. This jewel tone backsplash tile will make a serious statement in any kitchen. It’s a misconception that red is very hard to decorate with. This sparkling shade actually pairs perfectly with a wide range of colors including white, gray, yellow, tan, navy and black.
In other words, there’s a good chance the finish on your all wood cabinetry will work with a jewel tone backsplash like ruby red. Dream kitchens aren’t made by playing it safe. Take a plunge and see how a bright backsplash can take your kitchen to the next level.
- Bring Out the Throw Blankets and Accent Pillows
There’s no easier way to liven up your living room with some jewel tones than trading out your current throw blankets and accent pillows. It’s always great when you can make a big change in your home without any commitment, which is why we’re all for swapping out these accessories with the seasons. It is truly remarkable how these little pieces can have such an impact on the look and feel of your home.
- Paint an Accent Wall or Put Up Some Wallpaper
Adding an accent wall is another powerful but low commitment opportunity to decorate with jewel tones. If you find yourself shying away from bold colors, an accent wall is a great way to test the waters.
And with all of the intricate prints and patterns available, wallpaper allows you to add a splash of color and some character to any room in the home.
You could even paint a ceiling for a unique and unexpected color insertion.
- Trade Up Your Furniture for Some Vivid Jewel Tone Pieces
Colorful furniture is a fun way to incorporate jewel tones into the home. All it takes is one chair or side table to turn things up.
Try putting a bright topaz yellow chaise next to the window in your living room or set up a cozy corner in your bedroom with an oversized amethyst chair and ottoman.
You’ll notice that even a tiny accent piece can change the aesthetic and add a layer of richness.
- Invest in a Set of Jewel Toned Dinnerware.
Imagine how beautiful your dining room table would look covered with an assortment of color. Emerald green, sapphire, garnet…
Plates, bowls, and glasses in a rainbow of jewel tones instantly add excitement to any festivity. Curate a set of colorful dinnerware to use for your summer soirees and gatherings.
