When it comes to interior design, choosing a color can be intimidating. The wrong shade can feel too bold, too juvenile, too much. For many, that means sticking to the paler side of the spectrum for fear of going overboard, but it’s the deeper, more saturated shades that can take a room from basic to refined.

Jewel tones are the perfect accent—or focal point—for any style. Whether you want to add a showpiece sofa to your modern living room or a pop of personality to your traditional entryway, here are 10 richly colored pieces to shop right now.

Comfort and luxury don't always go hand-in-hand, but a velvet sofa delivers both in spades. The super-soft fabric looks best in saturated shades, so go for the deep blue. Pair it with an ombre cylinder side table for a cohesive color story.
