The Riches of Fall

It seems as though every fall one of the hottest trends is anything jewel toned. As someone who loves jewellery, I am always willing to jump on this particular bandwagon. Who wouldn't be inspired by these decadent earrings?

Jewel tones offer so many colours and moods to choose from, and an almost infinite variety of media with which to try them out.

Emerald (via Lonny)

Amethyst & Aquamarine (via One Kings Lane)
Ruby (via Miles Redd)

While turning an entire room into a prism of colour may be overwhelming (not to mention a lot of work!), there are plenty of different ways to open the jewel box in your home.


  
Emerald end table (Etsy)/ Anna Weatherly porcelain (Elle Decor)/ Pintuck Cushion (Urban Outfitters)


Glass Pendant Lamps (Moshe Bursuker)

Or if you want to be entirely literal in your application of this trend, you could splurge on this over the top lamp, or check out the amazing photo-realistic paintings of Toronto artist Carly Waito!

I like using jewel tone accents but I am considering painting a whole accent wall emerald.

Love the idea of an accent wall in such a rich colour! And gold or bronze accessories like picture frames or light fixtures would look great against it.
