The good side of Blue: Indigo Blue

You know how every colour has a good and a bad side? Like blue for instance, you have a 90’s mid strength, mellow blue which was always paired back with a weak yellow [bad side] and then you have the gorgeous, deep, transfixing Indigo Blue [good side] that works when paired back with any colour. Of course these good and bad sides change all the time so I thought why not start a weekly review looking at the [good side] of the current colour trends.
So here we are week one with one of my current favourites; Indigo Blue! [I especially love Indigo Blue velvet!]
Amazing Indigo Blue velvet deep buttoned chaise. I love this paired back with the white and aqua, it takes on a fresh and light feel given how deep and dark the colour is on it's own.
How could you go wrong! Hot pink and Indigo Blue with white accents, a guaranteed combination. I love the layering on the colour form the rug to the upholstery, walls and drapery trim.

Layer upon layer this works for me! The liquid look glaze on the lamp base is one of my favourite elements.

I have very mixed feelings about this image. I love the Indigo blue and white with the little pink pop but not sure about the mirror against the wainscotting and the little art works under the sconces?
More relaxed hamptons style Indigo Blue deep buttoned sofa which I think is in a waxed linen - how nice!

Besides the fact that this image features my favourite chair, the Chipendale, the repetitive hints of Indigo blue within the room have so much punch!

This is an incredibly cute idea, framed bandanas featuring unique patterns in Indigo Blue.
