Decorating with Jewel Tone Colors

Dip your toe into this color palette with inexpensive accents, such as lamps, wall art, pillows, and vases.
Amber, a cousin to of-the-moment citron, has all the boldness of gold without the sparkle. Try an upholstered chair or throw pillow in this color.
Pair jewel tones with equally vivid colors, such as gray, brown, and black. Vibrant hues can make other colors, especially pastels, feel dull.
Textured materials that reflect light help play up the drama of bold colors—think velvet, leather, and silk.
If you're wary about combining too many jewel tones, stick to solid-colored accessories, which are easier to group together than patterned accents.

Adorn your home in gem-inspired colors for a rich
and luxurious look. Consider Pantone's color of the year, emerald green, and other big-impact jewel tones--bright amethyst, sparkling sapphire, scintillating gold, ruby red, deep purple, and blood orange. 

Give nearly any spot in your home a boost of bejeweled opulence. Try experimenting with intense color in a small room; or opt for saturated hues in large areas, these colors create a feeling of intimacy by enveloping you in color.
