I just can’t get enough of indigo. I highlighted indigo two years ago on the blog and you know, I think I love it even more today. I can’t remember a time that I have been so attached to one color for this long. Indigo is such a rich complex color with a combination of deep blue and violet undertones that just captivate me. I think I love it so much because it’s such a great transitional color with a balance of cool and warm tones, which makes it a great neutralizer.
Each shade of indigo (darker and lighter) are each so individually beautiful and infusing all the shades together is a great (and easy) way to beautifully layer a room. You can do this not just with indigo but with any other color as well.
The easiest way to get started is to pick up a paint card with your primary color on it and all the shades, These colors below are from Sherwin Williams I found on their website:
It also helps to find an anchor piece like a rug, pillow or fabric that incorporates several of the shades like these:
Rug from Rug USA here:
or a pillow like this one designed by COCO Cozy that I found at Layla Grayce here:
Even just two having two shades of a color makes it so much easier to mix and match bold patterns together in pillows and fabrics:
The dot pillow in the darkest shade of indigo that I found is from Layla Grayce here:
The gorgeous Hampton Links pillow (I am so obsessed with this pillow) is also from Layla Grayce here (it’s a great price too!):
The beautiful lighter shade of indigo is a deep cornflower color, which is found in this zebra pillow from Neiman Marcus here:
I found more cornflower color in this gorgeous rug also from Rug USA here:
Right now there are so many great fun colors in lamps and I’m also obsessed with these indigo Foo Dog Lamps (I want these guys so bad!!) from One Kings Lane here:
I’m also loving this Blossom Table Lamp from One Kings Lane here:
One last thing, little small touches in accessories like votives and vases are another great way to keep adding that layers shades. I love this fun dark indigo finial top from Wayfair here:
So what do you think? Can you work in some indigo somewhere? You know, if you’re not digging on indigo, think of a color that you do love and check out all the shades of that color. Maybe that would be a great color to think about layering? It’s such an easy way to add a little pop to a space. One more thing… Are you guys loving those foo dogs too or is it just me? I gotta know! (I know, serious world issues here):
Thanks for hanging out with me today and by the way, if you missed Monday’s post about my new obsession with the new Velvet Finishes paint from designer Kellie Smith, you can check out that post by clicking the image below:
