When the world seems full of uncertainty, our home becomes a place where we want a little more luxury. A desire for opulence has inspired the upcoming trend for jewel-inspired colours. But luxury doesn’t mean spending a fortune. There’s a treasure chest of ideas out there – and you’ll find a few of them here!
One tone wonder
You could go all out for one colour. Painting the ceiling, cornices, skirting boards and EVERYTHING gives a real regency feel. But keep high gloss for kitchens and bathrooms – not the rooms you’ll want to relax in. Metallics work marvellously with jewel colours, so use touches of these and base neutral tones to counterbalance an excess of colour.
Behold the wonder of cushions – the quick-fire way to give your sofa a makeover and an up-to-the-moment look. (We get a little over-excited by the endless possibilities!) Plump for big, bouncy cushions or elegant bolster shapes; try an array of tactile textures from satin to wool; go gemstone monotone or for a mixed bag of colours. Oh, we could cushion shop forever.
Always room for opulence
It’s easy to see how sumptuous colour can be brought to your living room and bedroom, but you shouldn’t limit jewel-inspired tomes to there. Every room can enjoy a touch of extravagance. Cover walls or add accessories – like the stunning jade chairs above. And we couldn’t resist sharing this actual amethyst bathtub, complete with 24-carat feet!
Everyone deserves a little more luxury in everyday life. And that includes you! So whether or not you remodel or makeover your home, add extra sparkle to every day with rich jewel colours. Drink your morning cuppa from a gem of a mug, find fresh flowers in vivid tones, and enjoy the perfect excuse to treasure a jewel-coloured treat too. Go on, make every moment precious.
