Certainly, there is something special about the colors of gems; sapphire, ruby, emerald, amethyst, amber with more.

It is also true that these colors are the most trendy when it comes to interior design. We are talking about a trend that has grown even stronger over the past two years. It seems we want a cosy and colorful interior after years of neutrals. 

I am doubtful that this trend will be embraced by the public in general. Colors like gray, white and black have been favoured for a long time.

Colorful environments add energy and well-being.

The gem color palette have especially been favoured on velvet.  The emerald green velvet sofa has been popular for a while. And other vibrant colors to a certain degree on velvet curtains and cushions.

Nice curtain set in emerald green velvet.

Not many among us  would choose green curtains when the rest of the decor is in blue.
But it is absolutley the right move. The green curtains stands out and dominate the room. Well done.

The sapphire is my personal favourite. Transferred into fabrics it can look like this.

A silkdealers dilemma

As a purchasing manager, I collect a lot of inspirational
imagesfrom different image banks, such as Pinterest.
The reason for this is that it will give influences to future purchases
of new silk colors. It is not easy to foresee the colors our
customers will like.
