As the clocks go back and longer nights draw in, the urge to hunker down at home is undeniable. So make your home rich and warm for winter with the introduction of one of Autumn Winter 2019’s biggest trends: jewel tones. What are jewel tones? They’re colours resembling the hues of gemstones, like ruby, sapphire and emerald – rich and warm shades that give a luxe look. They add depth and luxury to your space, and make it instantly more welcoming and evocative. Here’s how to bring jewel tones into every room of your home.
Jewel toned living room
Your living room should be the most cosy room of your house, so add jewel tones – ruby and emerald – to your living room through the use of textured home accessories, like rugs and throw cushions. This handwoven emerald and pink rug looks great under a rich mahogany sideboard, or your sofa. Which you can top with jewel-toned cushions, like this teal and emerald striped cotton cushion. To add extra drama, switch up your lighting and incorporate this ruby red scandinavian pendant light into your space.
Jewel toned dining room

It’ll bring an inviting sense of luxury to your dining space ahead of dinner party and entertaining season, and make Christmas dinner rich and indulgent. These red cylinder dining chairs make a great focal point for your room, especially when your dining table is topped with an emerald green tall vase. Alternatively, a ruby red rug under your existing dining setup is a great way to add jewel tones with minimal effort.
Jewel toned kitchen
When it comes to incorporating jewel tones into your kitchen, look to your kitchenware and dining accessories – it’s a much more affordable way to give your kitchen a makeover than switching up your cabinetry. This tropical teapot includes shades of teal and emerald green, and is perfect for helping you warm up during winter.

While this green marble table is the perfect size for your kitchen, and makes a great place to sit with your evening hot cocoa.
Jewel toned bedroom
Adding jewel tones in the bedroom creates a boutique hotel feel that’s welcoming and warming – as well as fitting for the winter season. And because bedrooms have easy-to-change textiles – like pillows, throws and bedspreads – it’s easy and affordable to introduce jewel tones. This burnt orange velvet pillow has a luxe look, which looks even cosier when paired with a ruby red and gold bedside table lamp.
