A Bold, Bejeweled Floral Design For Fall

Fall presents a unique opportunity to add some richness and depth to our home decor scheme. If we’re not blending in those rustic harvest hues, we’re going in the opposite direction, the more vivid, vibrant direction. Yes, we’re talking about those gemstone colors, a palette that instantly injects excitement and a touch of mystery into your space. At Billy Heroman’s Flowers & Gifts,¬†we’re partial to any flower that can completely transform the look of your place. When those flowers show up in glittering, precious stone colors, we’re fully on board.

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 popular autumn arrangement, Bold and Beautiful, looks like a rainbow but a fall rainbow. The prevalence of orange in the daisies and lilies helps this stay autumnal, but it’s those powerful reds, blues, and purples that really enchant the eye. This is a great transitional piece from summer to fall, with those bursts of gold and seasonally-appropriate flowers. When you invest in some jewel-toned richness, you don’t have to sacrifice color (unlike spring’s muted pastel palette or fall’s hushed harvest hues). Instead, you’re announcing that you’re ready for the cooler weather, the deep dive into the holiday season, the visits from friends and family, and the shorter, darker days. Bring it on, your table seems to say. We’re all glittering here at Billy Heroman’s Flowers.
