How to work with Indigo Decor.

I’m currently obsessing over indigo decor and I won’t apologise for it. The main reason I love this blue hue is that it works in just about every decor scheme known to man! I’m going to show you a few scenarios were this colour shines and give you some inspiration to make it work in your own home!

What I love most about Indigo decor is its versatility; it works in so many scenarios. In the first picture above you’ll see it working in an industrial setting (my fave interiors scheme), paired with rustic woods and metals for a grounded, masculine feel (I could move into that room right now and never leave).

It also works perfectly in a more subdued palette where whites, creams and beiges are the main players (see the Hamptons style to the right). In fact, it’s a perfect hue to introduce if you’re wary of colour and want to ease into experimenting with it.

Indigo decor also feels right at home in a luxe, boho setting – teamed with metallics like gold and bronze. The right amount of earthy embellishments can also take it toward an eclectic, global-traveller scheme if you love a relaxed, thrown-together vibe.

And lastly, a nautical scheme is nothing without a glorious pop of Indigo and there are many sea-inspired cushions and artworks that utilise this hue. I told you it was decor’s most versatile colour!

Personally I can’t get enough of this hue and would love to know your thoughts.

  1. I do love it, especially on the walls and with white trims but my other half would never be brave enough to say yes. We have navy couches and dining chairs in our lounge/dining room.

  2. I looooove indigo!
    I would have it everywhere 🙂
    I painted my study in a similar navy blue to the 1st picture. It has white accents as well. But I love about this colour is that you can put pops of colour with it and it just makes the colour stand out so nicely. White frame with watermelon/neon pink. Try neon yellow or lime green! Citrus colours work great!! 🙂
