Today I Like ... Indigo

I didn't care much for blue as a girl. Invariably, everyone said it was their favorite color and contrarian that I am, I always zigged when they zagged. But something happened over the years, and I've noticed blue creeping its way into my house and wardrobe in its many incarnations. Lately, I've been really attracted to classic indigo — color of Delft tiles, Japanese shibori scarves and myriad block prints.

Bring indigo style to your stairs...couldn't find out whether these were tiles or wallpaper, but I found it here.

Can't afford to collect Delft plates? Fake it with Studio Ditte wallpaper.

No luck finding this source again, but I love the repetition of the chair fabric and pillow. Indigo really works well with white, wood and lucite.

I love the mix of traditional, ethnic and graphic indigo prints in this room.
