Mix Jewel Tones
Sure, green is a strong color, but it also works exceptionally well with other bold hues. This colorful living room from belindashusoghage features a jewel-toned couch that really pumps up the luxe factor in the room. When mixing jewel tones, pick two or three primary shades and keep the rest of the palette simple. This will allow those colors to really pop and prevent the room from feeling too carnival-like.
