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)
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)
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)
