Fall makes for great weather for exterior and interior painting projects. With any remodel, you have an assortment of colors to select from. One hue that most homeowners overlook is indigo paint. Let’s take a look at this color and why it’s a growing trend.
What Is Indigo Paint?
Indigo is a dark shade of blue. It is not the same, though, as navy blue, which is a shade or two darker. On the color spectrum, indigo falls within the blue violet range of colors.
Aside from home paint, indigo is also a common tie-dye color for denim and other clothing. In medieval Europe, clothing and furniture makers reserved indigo for only the most high-end commodities.
Exterior Applications for Indigo Paint
Indigo is great for home exteriors. Admittingly, it’s not for everyone because some homeowners may find the color too bold. However, others find it quite regal, especially if you complement it with white or neutral for the trims. In fact, our advice for homeowners is to pair indigo with a soft hue like buttery yellow or light earthy brown.
Indigo for the Interior
We believe indigo is great for bedrooms. It exudes coziness, more so than would with red, which some homeowners might find overstimulating.
For the living room, a light indigo produces a calm and relaxed atmosphere, while a darker indigo or even navy blue creates a formal and elegant vibe. If even the lighter indigo feels too bold, you can always stick to neutral. In this instance, our tip is to reserve the indigo for the furniture and drapes.
