Color Story: Jewel Tones

Winter just seems to provide the perfect backdrop for jewel tones, and these semi-precious hues are popping this time of year. Jewel tones pair perfectly with the rich hues of the holidays. Ruby red and emerald green, yellow topaz and sapphire blue, these modern furniture favorites were made to be dressed in vivid gemstone colors. Here’s my narrowed list of modern jewel tone favorites.
