Home Decor Inspiration from the October Birthstone: Opal

Opal is the official birthstone for October, and is a beautiful assortment of rainbow colors that make it a favorite stone in general. The reason it takes on a variety of colors is because the internal structure diffracts light, so it will take on different colors depending on the conditions of how it was formed.

Sometimes a variety of rainbow colors can be difficult to decorate with because it can quickly start to feel overwhelming. However, when done correctly and in small amounts, a rainbow scheme can go well with the rest of the home and add exactly the color you need.
