11 Ways to Decorate With November’s Birthstone: Citrine

We’re at that weird part in the year again. It’s cold, but not too cold. It’s no longer early autumn, but not quite early winter. And we aren’t yet decorating for Christmas, but we’re definitely rethinking our home decor. So let’s give ourselves a rhyme and reason to decorate for the month by tapping into November’s gorgeous birthstone color: citrine. Okay, citrine and topaz, both of which have yellow hues and make for an awesomely cozy vibe.

1. Statement Chair: For a pop of color — without the expensive commitment — try adding a citrine-hued chair to your living area. Bonus points if it’s like this awesome vintage leather beauty. (via A Beautiful Mess)

2. Florals: Prefer a non-permanent, simplified way of adding citrine to your home? Top off any surface with a vase full of yellow foliage. (via We Are Scout)

3. Pillows: Sometimes introducing a new tone into your home is as simple as adding a few decorative pillows or other subtle elements. (via Desire to Inspire)

4. Planter: Maybe it’s because winter is around the corner and we’re craving greenery, but plants, and thereby plant hangers, are huge right now. Of course, any greens look better when they’re being held up by macrame gold. (via Moon to Moon)

5. Couch: For the fearless among you, go out and rock a citrine-colored couch. We promise that even though this is November’s birthstone, you could easily transition this bold piece into spring, summer and fall with the right accessories. (via Babble)

6. Cabinets: Spruce up the office space by swapping a standard filing cabinet for a modern, bold choice. (via EST Magazine)

7. Rug: These don’t have to be brightly colored to make a statement. For a subtle citrine nod, find a rug with hints of yellow sprinkled throughout. (via Desire to Inspire)

8. Dresser: Whether you’re shopping for a new one or repainting that old one you picked up from a garage sale years ago, yellow dressers are a gorgeous way to add a bold pop of color in a totally unexpected place. (via Architecture Art Designs)

9. Lighting: Try adding a topaz-colored lampshade to an old light or, if you’re feeling really adventurous, swap out that chandelier for a more citrine-y option. (via Front + Main)

10. Eclectic Dining Chairs: Go boho by adding a few happy-hued chairs to your standard dining area. (via Design Sponge)

11. Bed Frame: Who says your bedroom has to be 50 shades of gray? Up your frame game by choosing a citrine hue that makes you happy to rest on every night. (via Apartment Therapy)
