Fall’s Rich, Gemstone Tones

Decorating your office space or home with fresh flowers can be a great opportunity to introduce bold tones and colors to an otherwise neutral area. Offices and workspaces are often kept calm and neutral to promote productivity. But influencing your space with a splash of color that’s all you is a great way to add your personality to your work area, living room, or Thanksgiving dining table. The floral designers at Adrian Durban Florist have some beautiful, jewel-toned arrangements that will pop in any work setting or home, giving you the burst of energy you need to keep going strong.

Warm Jewel Tones vs. Cool Jewel Tones

When you think of jewel-tone flowers, you may think of the warm, rich red, yellow, and orange blooms like chrysanthemums, dahlias, and other iconic autumn stems. Or, perhaps you like the deep, moody, cool hues like blue, green, and purple florals, including calla lilies, orchids, button mums, and delphinium that remind us of the cool sweater weather that is just around the corner. However, both warm jewel tones and cool jewel tones are necessary for creating the perfect warm, cozy, rich, and profound fall arrangement or even Thanksgiving centerpiece. Whether you enjoy utilizing complementary jewel tones or mixing and matching between warm and cool hues, it is important to note the basics based on traditional color theory and the color wheel.

Complementary Jewel-Toned Floral Hues

Gold & Amethyst Flowers

The jewel tones of yellow and purple are nothing short of regal and royal. As you perk up your autumn decor with this dignified duo, look toward blooms like uplifting sunflowers, Craspedia billy balls, daisies, football chrysanthemums, carnations, purple calla lilies, orchids, larkspur, purple pompon, and dianthus. This unstoppable jewel-toned pairing will offer the best of autumn in the most sophisticated and graceful way.

Amber & Sapphire Flowers

A warm amber-orange hue paired with a cool sapphire blue is a classic combination of complementary colors. Imagine the deep richness of petals that offer multi-toned oranges like alstroemeria, lilies, button mums, and dahlias nestled among brilliant blues like blue thistle, hydrangea, delphinium, and iris. This color combination is nothing short of cozy and radiant, like the glow of a fireplace with tiny blue flames that crackle above the coals.

Ruby & Emerald Flowers

Our final jewel-toned couple is ruby red and emerald green. Of course, your mind might take you straight to the hustle and bustle of the holiday season with this festive color combo. However, when we look at rich red roses, like carnations, dianthus, dahlias, chrysanthemums, and gerbera daisies, nestled among a bed of green eucalyptus or accompanied by green button mums, succulents, green orchids, or even Granny Smith apples, it is undeniably autumn.

Our compact, contemporary cube vase is packed with jewel tones in vivid orange, red, yellow, and purple alstroemeria, or Peruvian lilies. Accented with seeded eucalyptus and salal, our Autumn Alstromeria features brilliant colors that are the bright, crisp version of autumn’s darker hues. Lighten and invigorate your desk or office with this stunning design.

Try introducing bright, jewel-toned hues into your office or home with a gorgeous floral arrangement. You, your co-workers, and your family will feel refreshed and inspired by their rich hues and soft textures. The experts at Adrian Durban Florist can help you choose the best design for your color scheme and give you the confidence of knowing you’ve worked with the best!
