Blue is a favorite hue for many people when it comes to decorating, and this year the deep, moody shades of navy and indigo are taking center stage.  While there is a difference between the two, you will find most are calling anything in this rich hue Indigo.

Indigo is a classic, timeless, and very versatile color.

It looks great paired with the still so popular grays or with other shades of blue, and using it with it’s compliment, orange, definitely works.   I’m loving seeing it paired with turquoise and, as you can see from just the small sampling below, there really isn’t much that it won’t work with!

One of the simplest ways to incorporate indigo into your home is through accessories. Add it as an accent to your existing color palette, or use an accessory that has indigo + other colors to jump start a whole new color scheme.
