Sneak Peek – Indigo Blue

Hello friends!

I hope those of you on the east coast have hunkered down and gotten out of harm’s way.  Even here in Ohio, we’re getting some of Hurricane Sandy’s ugly weather!

But, that just makes for a good excuse to stay inside and tackle a project, right?

I have been contemplating a change in this space for a little while now, really thinking about incorporating a deep, moody blue.  Inspired by images like this:

So gorgeous!

I don’t know that I am bold enough to use a deep indigo like this in a large room, but I think it makes a great statement in a powder room or a small space that can handle that kind of impact.  Maybe a laundry room even?

I blame Carmel at Our Fifth House for feeding my recent indigo obsession.  Look at her cozy reading nook – perfect for a deep, moody blue.

So, here is a sneak peek at the indigo blue I have added in my home.  More to come…

What do you think?  Are you loving these deep, rich hues as much as I am?

    Great inspiration photos!! I keep wanting to add that pretty deep indigo hue to my house too! I do have it in a living room rug, but I love it on the walls! Totally has me captured right now! I think it's ben moore they have a color called "wescott navy" that's the one I've been crushing on. Can't wait to see how yours comes out 🙂 ~Bre

    Oooooh my gosh! I love that blue!! It's so perfect with the color palette in your house!

    And I am smitten with deep blues too – in fact it's my next project!….I tried a sample of BM Newburyport Blue over the weekend and am not sure about it. What color did you use?
