How To Decorate With Jewel Tones

For Design Firm Drake/Anderson, a little goes a long way and this year this seems to be a big trend with Jewel Tones.How To Decorate With Jewel Tones jewel tones How To Decorate With Jewel Tones imagem

There’s no doubt that amethysts, sapphires, and rubies look incredible on your hands and wrists, but pulling off the similar jewel tones in your home is no easy feat. Jamie Drake and Caleb Anderson, the team behind Manhattan-based design firm Drake/Anderson, know that a touch of these super glam shades goes a long way. The pair has gained a reputation for their keen use of colour and fashion-forward keenness. They schooled us on the best ways to use these rich hues at home without overdoing it; here’s what they had to say.

Test them out first

“Always introduce a dose of your favourite colour to a room via small-scale furnishings or even a test patch of wall paint before you settle on it,” Anderson says. “Different colours evoke different moods and feelings, so it is important that the colours you choose reflect the feeling you want to achieve.”

Less is more

Use bright tones sparingly, mainly in muted spaces. “Punctuations of colour in a neutral interior are the easiest (and most sophisticated way) to disperse colour throughout a room,” Drake explains. “Not only does it energise the space, it forces the eye to move around.”

Go big (in a small space)

According to Anderson, bright colours can offer dramatic layers of intensity and contrast in tight spaces. “Small spaces are a terrific place to go full blast with a colour you love,” he says. “A smaller room painted in a striking hue will envelop you in a cocoon of colour and personality.”

Architecture matters

Drake believes deep shades work best when they are used to balance the aspects of a room. “Saturated colours instantly enhance the structure of a space,” he says. “Jewel tones are an excellent choice for foyers, libraries, powder rooms, and other places of architectural interest.”

Accessorize away

There is an abundance of ways to include jewel tones into your home without too much commitment. “Decorative elements, such as throw pillows, flowers, lampshades, and accessories, are perfect for playing with bold colours at home as they can be swapped out without too much effort or expense,” Drake explains.
