"JEWEL TONES" are a girl's best friend!

Yesterday I posted about just one color, Yellow, and it DID bring some sunshine to us here in NY! So today I thought I'd continue with the color theme and go with my favorite little set of hues, "jewel tones". I do a lot of these colors in my own work and they never cease to do wonders with a space! I'm very into "haute-femme" decor, and these babies are key to achieving that look. These tones are also very hot in fashion and whether you are wearing them or sitting on them, they always seem to make the blood rush!

I am totally putting together my dream house with this post! And this would be my couch! Emerald green is such a beautiful color and on the sofa it really is the main focus of this photo! It's mesmerizing!
What a great eclectic mix! A little mid century a little baroque and of course the jewel tones make it so femme. I really wish I could see the rest of this French pink chaise. It is totally my style!

I am so in love with this bedroom, and that insanely cool bed! I also love the jewel tones in this room and I am totally going to steal that wall color (Benjamin Moore "Pre-Dawn Sky"). I am so jealous of that little girl! I want your room!
All in all, if you want some sexy, flirty fun in your home, take a visit to Tiffany's for some inspiration! If your husband/boyfriend objects to your girly palette, just do what I do and wait until he goes out of town! They are usually too lazy to repaint!

Of course that little girl's room would be Jonathan Adler. He is the king of happy decorating and that room just makes me smile! I'm jealous too!
