Orange may be the new black, but we're loving indigo. This inky, sultry hue is steeped in history and perfect for fashion and the home. 

According to a great article on Design Sponge: "The word indigo refers to where the color historically comes from. The word is derived from a Greek term that means “from India.” Indigo cultivation is thought to have existed in the Indus Valley (present-day Pakistan and northwest India) more than 5,000 years ago. They called it nila (meaning “dark blue”), and as good things often do, it spread. By the time European traders arrived in Goa in the early 1500s, Indian indigo was one of the goods they took home (along with embroidered silks and nutmeg and camphor from Indonesia)."

This deep, rich, and some would say "moody' color is amazing in the home. It pairs beautifully with white for a fresh, crisp look. Or, try it with shades of coral for a colorful, yet sophisticated palette.
