10 Gorgeous Ways to Decorate with Gemstones

Amethyst, agate, geodes, and everything "gemstone" is quickly becoming the home decor trend that's taking over our Pinterest feed. Discover how to decorate your home with sparkling stones.

Gemstones, geodes, agates—no matter which you prefer, they will make your home chic, stylish, and oh, so trendy. These natural rocks are mineral formations that, when cut in half, reveal a glittering, colorful interior—the perfect finishing touch for your coffee table.

The ones found in home decor aisles likely aren't the real deal, but that doesn't keep us from filling our homes with these glistening rocks! If you're looking for a nature-inspired way to glam up your space, discover our favorite geode decor ideas below.

1. The New Neutral

Neutrals once meant choosing shades that blend in instead of stand out. When combined with the gemstone trend, grays, whites, and tans become eye-catching art. For a grown-up take on geodes and agates, pair matching prints with furniture and textiles of a similar hue. See more from Lake City Loft.
