Stencil Color Obsession: Indigo

Cutting Edge Stencils Shares Stenciled Indigo Home Decor and Room Ideas

Good morning, my color enthusiasts! Do you have a bit of the Monday morning blues?  Cutting Edge Stencils sure does and the blue that has us all excited is indigo. We just can’t seem to get enough of the blue-violet hue and we feel it is versatile and elegant.  Blue never seems to go out of style but indigo seems to be the talk of the town these days.  Are you wondering why?  Well this timeless wall color can be swayed from classic to modern depending on the wall pattern. Even as an accent, indigo has a “use it now, love it later” mentality.

This trendy hue can look sophisticated and stylish when paired with a cream.  Take this Paisley Allover stenciled accent wall spotted on Joss and Main as the perfect example. This eye-catching hallway was painted in a hue similar to Benjamin Moore’s butter cookie csp-995 and the paisley pattern was stenciled in a deep blue like Benjamin Moore’s indi go go csp-565.

Or let this vibrant hue shimmer with a tone on tone application.  Misty, one of our creative stencil fans painted our classic Houndstooth Allover stencil in semi-gloss over matte using an indigo color similar to Benjamin Moore’s stunning 826.

Are you not quite ready to stencil indigo on your walls?  We understand and that’s why we love the idea of adding a splash of indigo using furniture or home decor accessories.  Kate, the talented gal from Centsational Girl painted this bone inlay inspired dresser. Once the piece was painted white, she stenciled our Nagoya Craft pattern in Glidden’s Rich Navy.
