Top Trend Colors of 2019: Jewel Tones

March 10, 2019

March is here and it seems so ready to proclaim the arrival of Spring, yet the winter appears to be going strong in many parts of the country. Jewel tones come to the rescue as one of the top colors of 2019 to bring  the perfect punch of color and liven up our wardrobes and interiors.

They certainly change the feel of a room and they make an impact. Sometimes their presence is strong which means they may not be the way to go for the color shy, but Jewel tones are potent to communicate and convey an emotional message about a living space. via Elle Decor


In this journal I will share some of my designs but also other favorite rooms to inspire you to create something different and may be (who knows?) a fresh new  palette for your next project.

purple kitchen
I know this violet purple kitchen by Kaitlyn McCarthy Design may not be for everybody, but thank God to those that dare follow their heart and make colorful spaces that totally draw you in and make you feel happy!

Jewel tones sometimes cam be ‘moody’ but uplifting at the same time. I love the juxtaposition of the trim and the playful rug in this formal dining room. via Elle Decor


formal dining room with blue accents
Here are two classics: Sapphire velvet and oval back dining chair for a timeless sophisticated look. The turquoise accents add a ‘smile’ on this dining room‘s face…


topaz blue grasscloth wall
The Jewel tones here reach another height in the form of Topaz grasscloth wallpaper, the lamps and the spiffy blue leather chairs in all their simplicity. The art confirms the rhythm of the scheme in a nice noninvasive way . . . via Elle Decor


emerald green kitchen
Wowza! See what I mean by impactful? Here are some masculine properties, but not only. The Emerald green cabinets and Teal counter stools make it happen. via Caitlin McCarthy Designs


These are one of the most comfortable swivel chairs I know, made in green velvet by CRLaine. The Sapphire parrots ‘speak’ the Jewel language and set the tone for the blue grasscloth chest by Barcley Butera.

four chairs living room setting
This is one of my very favorite Jewel tone projects! Each and every one of the materials has a story to say. The silver leaf texture wallpaper (it is hard to see in this picture) hold their elegance without being overstated.

spool counter stools in navy finish
In this breakfast nook the focus is on the Sapphire finish of the spool counter stools and the complimentary playful blue/green exchange. The art confirms the color story.


Purple wall study
Jewel tones sometimes can be moody, but that’s perfect when you are trying to make a cozy, gathering space like this study. I love how the Jewels  alternate here as each one plays its part and they all move hand in hand making the room special and comfortable. via House Beautiful

Exotic and crisp-looking, this master bedroom feels like a heaven of relaxation. The Jewel tones in accessories, pillows and art gently refresh the subtle white backgrounds. via Florida Design
