Jewel Tones that Glimmer like Springtime

Jewel Tones that Glimmer like Springtime

After a long, drearily gray winter, there’s nothing more welcome than the splendid colors of Spring. But since those seasonal hues are so short-lived, we like to surround ourselves with brilliant splashes of color year-round. Even though Mother Nature may be a tad stingy with her best jewels, we like to share.

For an eternal Springtime, we can always count on a rainbow of colors from the amazing glass artisans of Venice. There’s no end to the variety of pieces that one can deploy to make a sparkling, gem-like statement. Whether clustered in a grouping or singled out as a glittering accent, it is sure to evoke the delicate hues of Spring.

For last spring’s Kips Bay Show House, we sought to incorporate a subtle exoticism into our design. For the serenely neutral space, we designed a custom, jewel-toned desk inspired by India. With its combination of rich aubergine, vivid peacock blue and mustardy gold, it stands out as the jewel in the crown.

If you really want to replicate the perfect jewel tone, there’s nothing better than the real McCoy. For a touch of theater and a bit of fun, we adorned this charming bust with a chunky necklace of amethysts, purchased in Rajasthan. It’s a delightful way to inject color into your interiors…and keep your best jewels on display!
