A Jewel Tone Color Palette That Will Make Your Home Appear More Cozy (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Recently we've been inspired by the rich colors of jewel tones and how they can easily change the look and feel in the home. So far, we've explored how ruby red can infuse a room with passion, how shades of sapphire and amethyst can make a space feel calm, and how amber can provide a lively touch. This week, it's about bringing all these rich colors together. What set us off? This photo of stylish heels.

When it comes to decorating, it's important to remember that jewel tones are vivid, so they work best with other bold colors. For example, amber glassware will look more vibrant on top of a dark green tablecloth as opposed to a pale pink one, and a ruby red chandelier would look extra glamorous in a navy blue setting. If that seems like too many colors in one place, use jewel tones with neutral shades like gray and black.

Also, because of their richness jewel tones can have a cozying effect in a room. A large room with walls painted in a color like deep purple will instantly feel more intimate, and a small room with a similar hue will appear warmer.

Drawing inspiration from the many different shades of shoes in the photo, we came up with this stylish color palette. Click through the slideshow below to see the color palette along with a selection of home finds based on those hues.
