Rugs in Jewel Tones: Mesmerize with Alluring Color…

The term “jewel tones” is a descriptive term of colors that resemble those of gemstones (some examples are emerald green, sapphire blue and ruby red). When we think of jewel tones, we often think of fashion. We consider which color might match our skin tone best, or how we might sport more than one of these alluring tones at once. But what about incorporating jewel tone palettes in your interiors in your home? Perhaps this might be achieved through gorgeous and unforgettable jewel toned rugs. Decorating with these colors inspires the same feeling of upbeat energy that the colors convey.

What are Jewel Tones?

Jewel tones are colors that are, unsurprisingly, colors found in jewels and gems. Commonly, these include sapphires, emeralds, rubies, amethyst, and citrine. These colors are visually the opposite of pastel colors and are vibrant, deep, rich, and bold. These tones are not for the color shy. They are energizing, bright, and intense. Oftentimes associated with royalty, jewel tones are saturated and go well with metallic like gold that really amp up the “royal” look.

Many modern designers, whether they are clothing, furniture, or interior designers, are inspired by these colors and turn to them in their gorgeous designs. These colors serve as inspiration for many current fashion trends, trendy pieces of furniture, and even as the inspiration for a whole room design.

Decorating the Home with Rich Colorful Jewel Tones

Decorating your home interiors with jewel tones provides many options. You can choose to go completely bold and make a statement by decorating the room with all one jewel tone color or multiple jewel tone colors.

Conversely, you can also decorate a neutral-toned room and choose one or a few jewel tones as pops of color. Whichever way you choose to incorporate jewel tones, their timeless, rich beauty will add instant luxury to your space.

In rooms such as the dining room, home office, or library, jewel tones like emerald green or sapphire blue make great wall paint or wallpaper color choices. In the living room, rich jewel tones matched with luscious velvet, such as in throw pillows or even a sofa, are the perfect pairing. In the bedroom, consider a stately antique carpet dyed with saturated, royal jewel tones to give the space a more luxurious feel.

Happy Colorful Rugs

When choosing a rug, it is important to stop and consider how the rug makes you feel when you first see it. Here are some examples of colorful rugs that will brighten your day and help you transform your room into your happy place.

Bright Colorful Jewel Tone Geometric Patterns

Geometric patterns create a sense of order and balance. In recent years, chevrons, zigzags, and other geometrics in bold colors have been a part of our design vocabulary. This is because they make you automatically smile when you see them. Fine hand-knotted rugs in bright, bold geometrics add an element of surprise, but they also have a primitive, tribal quality that makes us smile. A bold geometric rug is the perfect complement to brighten styles from ultra-modern to Boho chic.

Lively Florals

Nothing brightens a room like flowers, and the same is as true for rugs as it is for flowers in a vase. Garden-inspired rugs bring the colors and shapes of the natural world indoors. Humans have a natural affinity for nature and anything that reminds them of nature. Bold florals in saturated colors automatically invoke a feeling of happiness and inner peace. They can be playful and whimsical or realistic and natural. Choosing a floral rug is a sure way to make the room feel a bit more bright and cheerful.
