Pick your favorite jewel tone and give your chest of drawers a renovation or that vintage cabinet a brand new feel. This DIY can brighten up your interior spaces while being easy on your pocket. An interesting trick here is to repaint the drawer knobs or accented table corners in metallic gold or brass hues so as to match the bold background colours of the furniture pieces.

ADD DRAMA WITH YOUR FURNISHINGS
A showcase of your personality, speak your mind with furnishings boasting bold and vibrant jewel tones. Think in terms of things that can be changed easily and without any hassle, like your bedcovers, table runners, cushion covers and bathroom linens. Once you are all tucked in these new furnishings, you will feel both cozy and glamourous in a royal setting.
