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.
