Indigo: As timeless as the deep blue sea

Given the current trend of beautiful neutral palettes of whites, creams, grays and beiges, indigo has become my go to color for clients who need a color to pop with these tones. 

It's peaceful, tranquil and comfortable. As relaxing as the deep blue sea. And as a Fort Myers interior decorator, I find that it is perfect for southwest Florida homes. It works with all styles...coastal, traditional, contemporary, beach cottages.

From paint color to fabric to accessories to tablescapes to lamps. In bathrooms and bedrooms. In living rooms...it works with other colors and turns a space into pure tranquility.

Pottery Barn has done a beautiful job of using this color and giving us endless ideas of how to use it in our homes. Blue has long been the most versatile color to use in our homes. And indigo takes it to a new level.

A few simple accents are enough when layered over neutral shades.
