Jewel Tones for Fall





I love all of the jewel tones I'm seeing this season - deep shades of purple and plum, royal blues, intense teal and bold shades of fuchsia; both in fashion and interior design trends. This color palette is rich and sophisticated, and I like the idea of mixing these strong colors with gold and copper accents.

  1. i love the strenghth of each color and the copper sort of softens the tones a bit. plus, i love adding metal elements when designing. they give a bit of sparkle. how is your furniture make over business progressing? are you having fun?

  5. LOVING the jewel tones... I'm a huge fan! Although, every time someone says the phrase "jewel tones" I think of high school show choir. They always wanted us in "sparkly jewel tones, girls. Sparkly jewel tones!"

    terrifying... but the actual jewel tones are splendid!

  10. Whoa! Loving the Indian-inspire palette!

    avant garde actually pointed me in the direction of your blog and let me know you are a fellow ASID member! I was saying that I thought it was rare to find blogs by ASID members, but here you are!

    I'm on the Michigan State University ASID Student board but will bridge to allied when I graduate.

    I'm loving your blog, I will definitely have to explore it more when I find the time between projects and such. I'm also really interested in hearing more about starting your own business, since that is my dream for the future!
