Indigo is traditionally considered a color in its own right. Moreover, it is part of the color wheel and is also found on the rainbow; between blue and purple. Indigo is both deep and vibrant. It is getting closer to blue on the color wheel. Not everyone wants to decorate their home with this color even if it is not as overwhelming and like red and orange. And yet, it is an option worth considering as it can add a really special touch to interior design. Discover in this post some ideas to decorate your interior in indigo; whatever your decorating style.
1. Indigo-colored furniture
What can we say about the furniture that bears this color? Well, they are simply refined! Whether it is wooden furniture painted in this color or upholstered furniture, they can be particularly sublime when they are indigo in color. This is valid for all furniture; from velvet sofas to simple wooden chairs, including shabby chic wardrobes and sideboards. Indigo furniture is easily the focal point of a decor.
2. An indigo accent wall
We can say that indigo is an intensive color. Therefore, if you are worried about overdoing it, you could choose a wall section and create an indigo accent wall in one of the rooms of the house. Choose your favorite shade and give your living room, bedroom, kitchen or bathroom a new look. To help you with the rest of the decor, know that indigo goes perfectly with white, gray, other shades of blue and neutral colors. Indigo adapts to all styles; whether you are a fan of classic or luxurious design.
3. Indigo-colored fabrics
If you are looking for fairly simple and economical ways to incorporate this color into your interior design, consider fabrics! This is a very good thing because if you ever do not like the color in the end, or you get bored of it quickly, you will not waste it. By fabrics we mean the cushions on the sofa and armchairs, the tablecloth and the table runner in the dining room or the bedding in the bedroom. You could also incorporate indigo into any room in the house using curtains.
4. Decorative accessories
In case you don’t fancy creating an accent wall, investing in new furniture, or replacing your upholstery, there is one more option left – decorative items. It’s also a good idea to use color in moderation in your interior design. It can be lamps, works of art, vases or any other decorative accessory that you like and that carries this famous color.
