Color Trends: Dark Indigo Up and Coming

In fashion, color trends vary with the seasons but for interior design, we look for long-term classic colors that will stand the test of time and your investment.  Dark Indigo is one of those colors that is very fashionable and "trendy" now in fashion, but it is a long term classic color whose peak in popularity will last for a long time. 

Overall, as the economy strengthens and homeowners experience confidence in their current and long term financial condition, color trends tend to mature and become more sophisticated.  Those bright neon pops of color on fashion runways have already given way to softer pastels and deeper, richer colors. 

Dark Indigo blue is one color to specifically take note of as it makes its way into more and more interiors. It continues to be a go-to color for nautical inspired decor which is perhaps a nod to its longevity and why it persists in fashion and interior palettes year after year. 

Indigo Blue is a color we expect to see long term for interior design palettes.  It offers a stunning contrast for very popular white painted cabinetry and looks beautiful with gray tones as well as stained finishes.  Here are just a few examples of Indigo Blue in home interiors ...
