Home Tones: Indigo

Indigo living roomcredit

While wondering what colour to feature in this week’s Home Tones, I glanced down at my T-shirt… Indigo blue.

One of the seven colours of the rainbow, indigo is a deep, dark blue. It’s the traditional dye used to colour denim or serge de NĂ®mes to give it its correct term. It’s also used to colour wool, silk and food.

Indigo’s got real impact when it comes to interior decoration – intense and rich. It seems to work very well when it sits against a crisp white in the form of skirting boards, ceiling etc. It also looks fabulous when combined with layers of grey tone or natural wood shades. Successful highlight colours include yellow, pink, gold and other brass like metallics.
