Indigo. It’s a color that has been a sensation for centuries, but it still feels fresh and modern. Whether you’re looking for a deep-saturated tint to anchor a room or vibrating pop for visual interest, indigo meets your expectations. It is also called blue gold and has a history as rich as its hue. Whether you want to use indigo as a neutral base or in an eye-catching shibori textile, it can help you move from room to room. Here are four reasons why you should incorporate indigo into the design of your next piece.
He has history
Groups of people have used indigo to bring color to their art and textiles for more than 4,000 years. It has been a success from the beginning – even when European civilizations had to rely on less powerful flowers than the Indigofera tinctoria, they always found a way to dye textiles blue. If you are looking for a durable color, indigo is an excellent choice. Use it in investment rooms – such as this 2-piece Decker velvet sectional – for a look you’ll love in the long run.
This is one reason why we have kept this color in our design directories for generations. The particularity of indigo is that it is both traditional and modern. Deep blue shouts an inheritance but also evokes images resolutely fresh as the evening sky or the wide. When looking for a color that will help a room feel well-established without tiring over time, choose indigo.
It’s boho for adults
If you are a free spirit, a child at heart or a world traveler, you will probably want to add a gaming feel to your space. Bringing the boho style back home gives you that sense of creative openness, but it’s a challenge. How much is too much? How to create a boho space without falling into disorder or unrefined? To nail the boho space, you need to choose pieces that can easily balance on the edge of this razor. And shibori is a slam-dunk addition – and an easy DIY. You can see it in action in the Shibori framed prints above.
Shibori is a dyeing technique that dates back to the 8th century in Japan. Using such a traditional style, you help your indigo accents to feel distinguished – while tipping your cap to tie-dye. Tie-dye was a favorite of the early boho style, but it can give a room an air of dormitory. Shibori is like his big brother and his well-established sister. Layer different shibori patterns in one space for the main points of style.
