NOVEMBER 2021 - SAPPHIRE 

As November arrives, our focus turns to our homes. In many places, it’s starting to get colder, the sun sets earlier, and we all just want to be cozy! Naturally, we turn to things with a much richer feel, whether it’s hearty meals on a chilly day, spending Saturdays wrapped up in a cozy blanket watching movies, or just surrounding ourselves with colors that reflect the season. It’s that deep, comforting feeling that has inspired the Color of the Month for November: Sapphire!

This gorgeous shade of blue is bright, but also very grounding. Blue is known to be a very calming, soothing color, and really helps to create a feeling of comfort in any space. What’s special about this particular shade helps to brighten up your home, without feeling overwhelming. You’ll definitely appreciate the energy Sapphire brings to any room on those long winter days.

 

 

As a gemstone, Sapphires are said to provide good energy and promote healing. They can also help bring mental focus, and are a strong symbol of strength, power, kindness and good judgement. They’ve also long been associated with royalty, and represent order.

When it comes to using Sapphire in your decor, you have a ton of options! Blue is a very versatile color and pairs well with both warm and cool tones. Sapphire would work well as an allover wall color in a formal living room or a powder room, or as a bold accent wall in any space. For kitchens, try painting your cabinets in Sapphire for a modern, sophisticated look. In terms of coordinating colors, you can’t go wrong with crisp white! To keep things feeling earthy, pair it with warm wood tones, shades of brown, cream, and soft gray. If you want a look that really pops, try pairing with other jewel tones like deep red or emerald green.
