Color Crush: Indigo

Every season a shade of blue steps out as an “it” color for home décor, and indigo is having its day. Often confused with navy, indigo is a dark, almost black blue that has an eclectic sense of style. The color actually comes from a natural dye, extracted from plants, and it’s the basis for navy blue. If you love indigo home décor as much as we do, here are five easy pieces to incorporate in your rooms:
