A Mishmash of Jewel-Tones

The best part about this look is that you can go wild with a variety of shades, as long as they dance to the same beat. This means all shades of vibrant blue or green, paired with exciting hues of pinks and reds. Orange works too! To get the most out of this look, go for muted shades of color on your walls.

Make Your Intent Clear

Be confident about your intent. Boldly add a bright piece to your decor to take it up a notch. This can be in the form of a magnificent sofa in bright shades or the mingling of bright shades in your accessories and your drapery. The choice is yours. It is exhilarating to take off the shackles of tame colors and let your wild side reflect in your decor.

Amp Up the Look with Shiny Accessories

When we speak the language of jewels, metallics such as gold, silver, or bronze are the obvious next step to complete this fabulous picture. So add a touch of gold metal to your lighting, accessories, or end tables to brighten up the space. We are talking about Aladdin’s Cave, so go for it!

Glistening yellows and oranges are a great pick for a summery feel. To get the shade you want, let the vendor mix your favorite hue for you. But hey. It is easy to get confused as bold colors have a gorgeous sheen, making it difficult to pick your favorite. So take your time.
